Soggy Sunday

Recent dry conditions will take a big hit as a wet weather system works its way through the western Carolinas this weekend. Evening showers and thunderstorms will transition to more of a general rainfall later tonight. A wedge of cool air moves in from the east overnight. Low pressure then wraps up over SW NC, spreading plenty of moisture over the wedge. The result will be a very wet and chilly Sunday. Monday remains cloudy and rather damp as the low will be slow to leave. Rainfall amounts of 2 to 4 inches are possible by the time the rain ends. Better weather returns for Tuesday.

To help us get through the Sunday rainfest, the Golf-O-Meter has been changed to the Raccoon-O-Meter. The prospects for Merlefest include great weather and wall-to-wall music next Thursday through Sunday!

Forecast Discussion

A dynamic spring weather system will bring plenty of rain to the region this weekend, most of it falling tonight through Sunday night.

Showers and thunderstorms will gradually transition to a more general rainfall tonight as a cool wedge of air works in from the east. Tomorrow’s highs will run at least 20 degrees cooler than today's as that wedge works in. Low pressure also develops over SW NC tomorrow, before moving down into eastern Georgia. The low will lift abundant moisture over the wedge, setting the stage for widespread rain which will fall heavily at times… especially on Sunday.

The surface and upper level low become stacked and cut off from the main steering flow of the atmosphere on Monday. This means it will move only slowly to the east. Rainy conditions should last through the morning hours over the mountains, while the foothills may see rain all day.

By Tuesday the low is far enough east for better weather to return. You’ll positively be able to hear the grass grow. Favorable grass growing conditions continue for the rest of the week as a potent ridge pokes in from the south, eventually bringing the warmest air of the season so far. Good news for Merlefest in Wilkesboro next weekend!
