Forecast Last Updated at Monday, June 18, 2018 at 5:16AM

Heat Through Midweek

Rather hot conditions will persist into midweek with isolated afternoon and evening showers and thunderstorms. Temperatures ease off slightly thereafter and our coverage of PM rainfall increases just a bit for the second half of the week. It’s a pretty classical summertime weather pattern for western North Carolina.


Hi: 93 Lo: 68

Mostly sunny; A stray PM shower or t-shower; Hot; Light & variable wind

Hi: 93 Lo: 68

Mostly sunny; Hot with isolated afternoon showers and thundershowers; Light WNW wind

Hi: 92 Lo: 68

Lots of sunshine; Hit-or-miss PM showers or t-storms; Hot; Light NW wind

Hi: 89 Lo: 66

Partly sunny; Widely scattered afternoon and evening thunderstorms

Hi: 91 Lo: 65

Partly sunny; A good chance for PM showers & thunderstorms

Further Out

Saturday - Partly cloudy; Scattered afternoon and evening showers & thunderstorms; High in the mid 80s; Low in the mid 60s
Sunday - A good deal of sunshine with hit-or-miss PM thunder; Rather hot; High near 90 degrees; Low in the mid 60s

Forecast Discussion

High pressure controls the troposphere for the next couple of days before the ridge begins to weaken just a bit toward and after midweek. This will mean a continuation of the hot and rather humid conditions across the Foothills.

Heat-of-the-day thunderstorms will be isolated in nature through Tuesday. As the ridge weakens a bit thereafter, we believe there will be improving coverage of PM showers and thunderstorms.

During the week, it appears as though any frontal zones will remain to our north and west or over the Ohio Valley/Mid-Atlantic region through the period as we remain under the influence of the subtropical/Bermuda high.
