Ian Takes I-77

Hurricane Ian will be making landfall in the Georgetown, SC area today as a category-one storm. Once inland, it will track to the north-northwest with rain overspreading the mountains this afternoon. The heaviest rainfall will miss us to the east, however we still expect 1-2 inches mostly east of Asheville, and totals under an inch downtown Asheville and points west from there. Thus, we are spared from Ian’s worst, with no flooding concerns. Winds will be gusty today out the north-northwest, with gusts to 30 mph expected. Leftover showers will be around Sunday-Monday, but amounts will be light after tonight.

Forecast Discussion

We will be spared the worst from Ian, with a track just to the east of the Foothills. The onset of rain will hold off until late afternoon or this evening, with the steadiest rainfall for tonight. Winds will be gusty out of the north, but we think the strongest winds stay just east closer to the path of Ian’s circulation center.

A faster Ian forward motion means a faster improvement to our weather on Saturday. There will be plenty of leftover moisture and perhaps a few showers, but the day will be predominately dry. More of the same is expected on Sunday as a trailing trough of low pressure might spark a couple of showers.

Once we get past the weekend, it’s a tale of high pressure. Skies will turn mostly clear and temperatures will slowly begin to moderate after a rather unseasonably cool weekend.
