Easy Street

It doesn't get much nicer for the first day of October! Thursday brings another round of patchy morning fog followed by a pleasant afternoon. Our first strong cold front of the season is inbound Friday with showers and maybe even a rumble of thunder. We dry out in time for the weekend, however it will be chilly with daytime temperatures 15-20 degrees cooler than today and frost potential in valleys Sunday morning.

Forecast Discussion

Today was one of those Fall days you dream about, comfortably warm with plenty of sunshine. Thursday is similar, patchy morning fog followed by another mild finish.

The pleasant stretch of weather takes a big turn Friday as a powerful cold front sweeps across western NC late Friday night. Ahead of the front showers abound (focused more on the afternoon) with a few rumbles of thunder in the mix as well. Fortunately the weekend will by dry, but it will be quite chilly Saturday with a gusty northwest wind. If you are headed to the App State match-up it is not a ridiculous idea to dress for a November game. The frost potential is looking more and more likely Sunday morning with an emphasis on sheltered valley locations.

It will be a notch milder Sunday after a chilly start, still cool, but feeling warmer thanks to a gentler breeze. Another quick moving front arrives Tuesday. This one doesn't pack near the punch as Friday's nor does it have much moisture to work with, however we have to account for a few showers late Monday night and Tuesday.
