Forecast Last Updated at Wednesday, April 23, 2014 at 12:59PM

Sun but Breezy Day

The weather is finally breaking into a "Spring Look". Yesterday's thunder was evidence of this progression. The front that moved through Tuesday evening is now well to our south. Expect a sunny, breezy day with cooler but seasonal temperatures. Thursday will be a touch warmer with increasing clouds at night. Showers are expected late Thursday night and Friday morning (maybe some thunder). Otherwise, we have nice weather through the weekend.

It's our favorite time of year again... MerleFest, Thursday through Sunday wall-to-wall music on 13 stages. The weather looks great (except for a few showers morning and early afternoon Friday). See our Hour-by-Hour MerleFest Forecast for details.

Forecast Discussion

Tuesday's front is well to our south in Georgia. We'll have sunshine today with temperatures not far from seasonal norms. It will be breezy during the daytime. The breeze settles tonight and temperatures will be cool.

Thursday will be warmer with plenty of sun; however, clouds increase Thursday evening as a front approaches from the west. Showers are possible late Thursday night and Friday morning (a rumble of thunder is possible). The front will move through quickly and sun returns Friday afternoon.

Friday's front settles to our south leaving us with a very nice weekend and high pressure in control.

Our next rain-maker is an upper-level low moving out of the Rockies Sunday into the Plains, then to the Ohio Valley by Tuesday. A couple "spokes" of moisture will be associated with the slow-moving low. We have the chance of a few showers late Sunday night into Monday. The more significant rain comes Monday night into Tuesday as an associated cold front moves through. Exact details on timing for the rain event early next week are not knowable now. Cooler weather is a good bet for the middle/end of next week.

Sugar Mountain Resort Activities

The winter season at Sugar Mountain Resort has come to an end.

But we are already preparing for spring and summer fun. Be sure to visit.

Check out our panning, live streaming webcam from the top of Sugar Mountain. Or see what's going on at the 4,300 ft. base.

Watch as we transform the tubing and ice skating facility into a golf and tennis center.
