Beautiful Saturday

It's rare in the summertime that we can say a day is rain-free but today is one of those days. Today is pleasant with sunny skies. Tomorrow is much of the same for most of the day, until isolated showers arrive late-day through the night, ahead of a front. The front moves through Monday, upping the coverage of showers and thunderstorms in the afternoon. Showers remain in the forecast for the rest of the week.

Forecast Discussion

We have a beautiful weekend in store - enjoy it! Dry high pressure behind the front from Thursday is the main weather driver in Western North Carolina keeping humidity down and temperatures pleasant today and most of the day tomorrow.

A disturbance develops over the Midwest Sunday and moves southeast, bringing isolated showers and thunderstorms late in the day on Sunday and through early Monday morning. A front pushes through Monday. This will ignite scattered, mainly afternoon showers and storms and bring us back into a humid air mass.

This front stalls to our south, keeping rain in the forecast all week. Tuesday has isolated afternoon storms and coverage increases to widely scattered as the week progresses. Temperatures stay a little cooler than normal this week.
