Sunshine & Seasonable
Skies are sunny today with temperatures just about where they should be for late-January. If you like today, then you’re going to enjoy Friday. The weekend is mixed: We have sunshine on Saturday with milder temperatures. Sunday features more cloud cover and perhaps some spotty late-day and nighttime rain. We’re not expecting much, however.

Western North Carolina remains in a cool, post-frontal environment today. It’s generally clear east of the mountains, but we do have some snow showers flying out over the NC/TN border.
Friday looks similarly cool, then we do get a rebound in temperatures on Saturday as high pressure exits the Southeast U.S. Coast and we get a milder, southerly return flow of air.
Clouds return on Sunday as milder air continues to replace the cooler air, and a disturbance tracks through the southern branch of the Jet Stream. There could be some spotty light rain late in the day or Sunday night, but rainfall amounts will be very light.
Monday might just be the pick of the week with sunshine and unseasonably mild temperatures. A slow-moving and complex frontal system approaches our region on Tuesday and could get hung-up for awhile over the Southeastern U.S. That could create an unsettled last half of the workweek, along with slowly decreasing temperatures over time.
