Late-May Cooldown

It's chilly out there. We woke up to low-mid 30s on mountaintops and low-mid 40s elsewhere. Gusty NW winds diminish this morning and temperatures will rebound some this afternoon with full sun. Valleys will be especially chilly tonight. Overnight, mountaintops will gradually warm point the way to the future for all of us... A beautiful Memorial Day Weekend. Get outside and enjoy!

Boone is in the Elite Eight in Outside Magazine's Best Town Ever 2015 competition. We are still behind after Day 2 of voting. There's much work to do! Wear out your right index finger voting to show America who's best! Watauga Medical Center is offering free repetitive strain injury assessment for voting related injuries. :-)

Forecast Discussion

Chilly air rushed in behind yesterday's low. It's the coldest airmass we have felt since May 1. Full sun will give a little bump this afternoon, but then valleys will "go deep" again tonight. A little frost is possible on rooftops in our typical cold holes: Crossnore, Banner Elk, Elk River, Valle Crucis, and Grandfather Valley.

After a chilly start Saturday, the afternoon will be warmer under sunshine.

A warm front passed by from the southwest Saturday evening, putting us back in warmer air. However, I think we can fight off afternoon convection through Memorial Day. Monday has an ever-so-slight chance of a renegade afternoon thundershower, too small to mention in the forecast box.

But we return to a summer-looking pattern (high pressure in the Atlantic extended back into the Southeast blocking fronts from the west), and an increase in afternoon thundershower activity is inevitable. We'll call it "widely scattered" Tuesday and Wednesday, then increase in coverage Thursday ("scattered"). Temperatures continue a gradual climb through Wednesday and remain unseasonably warm Thursday.
