Warm Weekend; Cooler Week Ahead

Record high temperatures were met and broken today across western NC. The record today for Boone was 74 degrees, set back in 1945. Records were also broken for Asheville, Banner Elk, Beech Mtn., Hickory, Lenoir, West Jefferson, Spruce Pine, & Jefferson. North Wilkesboro tied today's record. We'll have increasing clouds overnight ahead of a quick moving front that sweeps through Sunday. There will be a few passing light showers, mainly in the morning. Tomorrow is a handful of degrees cooler, though still unseasonably warm. Reality gradually returns in the temperature department as next week unfolds.

Forecast Discussion

Temperatures blossomed today thanks to a warming southwesterly flow. The warmth is tempered somewhat Sunday as a cool front makes quick passage across the state. Accompanying the front are a few light showers, mainly in the morning and they really don't have enough "umph" to make it past the mountains.

Monday is sunny and cooler, though still above average, as high pressure makes a brief appearance.

Low pressure moving across the Southeast brings clouds back Monday night followed by a cool and soaking ran Tuesday. For those of us who suffer from seasonal allergies the rain will work wonders on tampering the sneezing and sniffling. Rain ends Wednesday morning with even a few wet snowflakes possible as colder air arrives behind the departing low.

Seasonal to cooler than average temperatures hold steady the remainder of the week. A quick disturbance brings a lighter round of rain back into the picture Friday. I want to bite my tongue, but some high elevation snow could show up Friday morning. We'll cross that bridge then. Enjoy!
