Big Warmth Continues

Skies were mostly sunny today with another day of exceptionally warm weather and near-record high temperatures. There will be a few showers Saturday morning; Just a speed-bump in the road to another nice day (albeit windy). Sunday will be very nice again with abundant sunshine. Temperatures next week will be closer to normal, but mostly dry weather will be maintained.

Forecast Discussion

If you liked Thursday’s weather, you probably loved what Friday had in store: More sunshine, more warmth.

A cold front will be passing through western North Carolina during Saturday. Severe weather to our southwest today will weaken as it heads over the mountains in the morning, and so we’re expecting a weakening band of showers (maybe a thundershower) to cross the mountains Saturday morning. Otherwise, skies will become mostly sunny after early showers exit, and it will be rather windy but warm.

High pressure takes command on Sunday with more glorious weather. Saturday’s front becomes stationary and will focus rainfall nearer-to the Southeast U.S. coast on Monday, although a few showers are possible farther to the north.

Tuesday through Thursday will feature fair weather and temperatures a bit closer to where they should be at the end of March.
