Scattered Showers Thursday and Friday

Good Afternoon Folks! Pop up showers are moving slowly across the region this afternoon, with temps in the mid - upper 80's across the valleys and low 70's along the ridgelines. Muggy conditions will persist today (Wednesday) through next week as overall flow remains out of the south, at times changing from southwest to southeast but nonetheless out of the south for the foreseeable future. This means shower chances remain high but no washout is expected, just the run of the mill pop up showers and thunderstorms as no upper level feature interacts with our region through at least Monday. A cold front looks to come close to the TN line Friday but it should be far enough to our NW that only the

Above Normal Temps Return

Good Morning Folks! After a spectacular showing these past few days, the weather will begin to revert back to its summertime form, with temps gradually warming today into next week alongside increasing moisture levels. We'll have a fairly dry weekend this go around however by Monday enough moisture will be in the air to allow pop up showers each afternoon. Coverage will be isolated to scattered both Monday and Tuesday, with an increase as we head into the latter part of next week, mainly due to a frontal passage which has yet to be ironed out by the models. Regardless, it seems this rise in temps will be somewhat short lived, although late next week will not be as nice as this past Thursday

Frontal Passage leads to Fall Like Weather

Good Morning Folks! We'll deal with a frontal passage today (Tuesday) and this will bring with it widespread showers and thunderstorms this afternoon, followed by lingering scattered showers Wednesday afternoon as a small piece of energy swings into the region. NW flow will ramp up tomorrow and continue into Thursday, setting the stage for fall like weather, with a noticeable drop in humidity levels and of course cooler temps. Humidity slowly returns as we head into the weekend, settling back into a summertime setup by Saturday and temps are likely to rise to above normal levels by early next week. Looking at the long range outlook, it seems the last week of August and first week of Septembe

Muggy Conditions Linger into Tuesday

Good Morning Folks! Of course it's muggy seeing how it's August and we're in the mountains, but additional moisture will migrate into the region today through Saturday, setting up above normal humidity levels. This setup will aid in the development of widespread showers Saturday, followed by scattered showers Sunday through Tuesday. A cold front looks to arrive sometime Wednesday or Thursday of next week, setting the stage for a drier and perhaps cooler airmass across the Carolinas. For those wishing summer would end, be patient as our fall like weather usually kicks in early September for the ridgelines, sliding down to the valley floor by late September; only 3 - 5 weeks away! Mostly cloud

A Normal Summertime Setup

Good Afternoon Folks! Passing clouds and pop up showers and thunderstorms will be the norm today through Saturday with shower chances increasing Sunday into Monday and then drying out by Tuesday of next week. It seems the best day this weekend to be outside will be Saturday, however rain chances remain, but coverage will most certainly increase on Sunday. Temps all the while remain on the cool side of average for this time of the year, but once the moisture leaves the area and full sunshine returns (Tuesday), temps are expected to creep back to normal levels. Speaking of which, for those looking forward to cooler weather, know that we have passed our hottest part of the year just over a week

Rain Chances Ramp Up Wednesday

Good Morning Folks! After some pop up showers this weekend, we'll continue to experience isolated to scattered shower coverage this afternoon and Tuesday, however by Wednesday the setup becomes more conducive for widespread showers. This carries into the the latter part of the week and by the weekend it seems we'll deal with muggy conditions and scattered to widespread showers, however we can't say for certain as our forecast range is more accurate anywhere from one to five days, as opposed to five plus days out; check back in Wednesday for a weekend update. Generally, a westerly flow over the region today and tomorrow will give way to an approaching front Wednesday, with the mid week front

Today is the Wettest Day of the Week

Good Morning Folks! Over the past 24 hours, ending 8/2/18 8:30am, rainfall amounts range from 1 - 4" depending upon location, with a good size swath of 3" plus readings near the TN/GA state line and again along the escarpment, however closer to Hendersonville than the Great Balsams. Since Tuesday morning the highest total thus far is out of Beaver Creek, near the town of Valley River, with a whopping 5.20", followed by Deep Creek with 5.07". Needless to say we are well on our way to meeting the forecasted amount of 5 - 7" across the region by early tomorrow morning, more so because today is expected to be the wettest day of the week! Another 1 - 3" of rain is likely to fall across the region
