Forecast Discussion

The high pressure system that controlled our weather this week moved offshore today as a dry cold front pushes through the Southern Appalachians this evening. We'll see some increased clouds as the front passes and gusty winds overnight Friday, especially at higher elevations.

Behind the front our weather is dominated by an expansive Canadian high. This means cool days with breezy winds and chilly nights this weekend. We could see some frost in the valleys on Sunday morning. Temperatures gradually warm up and dry sunny conditions continue through mid-week next week.

Another front is expected to move through on Thursday, this time bringing rain with it.

The tropics are mostly quiet again. Tropical Storm Julia is spinning off the coast of Venezuela and is expected to intensify as it moves westward and makes landfall in Central America. This will have no effect on our weather here.
