Cooler Overnight

A cold front pushed through this morning without much fanfare. Behind the front a stout northwest flow cranked up that will last through Thursday. The wind isn't a "big story", but it the bigger part of the story since there isn't too much going on this week. Additionally, a passing shower cannot be ruled out until drier air gets here tomorrow (most of us stay dry or see very little). Brighter and warmer days return before the end of the week!

Forecast Discussion

Our weather hiccup of the week is a cold front that pushed through the mountains this morning. The front is part of a deepening area of low pressure which turns into an impressive Nor'easter in the coming days. Clouds arrived ahead of the front yesterday afternoon...this afternoon brought the wind. There isn't much moisture for widespread showers but a persistent northwest flow means a passing shower or two isn't completely off the table until midday Wednesday. Note to self, most of us stay dry or see hardly any rain. Temperature-wise, we've dropped five degrees from yesterday's highs and subtract another five degrees (or better) off that tomorrow as the core of the cold arrives. Mountaintops dip below freezing Wednesday morning.

High pressure builds Thursday and Friday marking the beginning of brighter and milder days. In the big scheme of things the forecast is very nice this weekend into early next week. Another disturbance sweeps over the southern Appalachians Saturday morning. Any unsettled weather that it brings is short lived, but we have to mention the possibility of a passing shower Saturday morning. That's it, Sunday through early next week look about as good as it gets for late October.
