Forecast Last Updated at Tuesday, April 23, 2019 at 6:23AM

Warm & Quiet

The next two afternoons feature some very warm weather along with a continuation of dry conditions. There will be some extra clouds around after our nearly cloudless Monday. Our next opportunity for rainfall comes late Thursday and especially during the first half of Friday. Preliminarily indications suggest that weekend weather will be quite favorable with a good deal of sunshine and pleasant temperatures.

Merlefest 2019 is this week, Thursday through Sunday. In 4 days, you can see: The Avett Brothers, Sam Bush, Wynonna Judd, Brandi Carlile, Steep Canyon Rangers, Amos Lee, Keb Mo, Dailey and Vincent, Scythian, Radney Foster, Kruger Brothers, Chatham County Line, The Waybacks, and nearly 100 other great artists. Weather....After showers and thundershowers Thursday night and mainly Friday, we are looking at dry weather for the rest of the festival. See our Hourly Forecast for Details.

Forecast Discussion

It’s cool again this morning, but expect a very rapid temperature recovery today with lots of sunshine. Wednesday will be very similar today’s weather, with perhaps some extra mid-and-high level cloudiness during the first half of the day.

A cold front will approach the area late Thursday and push through here during Friday. Most of Thursday will be dry, although there will be a shower risk by Thursday night. We think the best coverage of showers (maybe a thundershower) will be on Friday through early or mid-afternoon.

Behind the front, dry weather returns for the weekend. A weak front heading into western North Carolina late Sunday or early Monday initially appears unable to generate any showers due to the rather dry air mass that will be in place over the region. So, for now, we’ll hold onto a dry forecast, which is great news for
