Forecast Discussion

High pressure hangs on through Wednesday afternoon. By Wednesday evening, a warm front will move north through western NC. A thunderstorm complex should develop along that front in the Ohio Valley and move our way but the storms should weaken quite a bit before entering western NC. However, there could be some leftover showers late Wednesday night into early Thursday morning. Temperatures are a little above average today and Wednesday.

Afternoon and evening storms could fire up Thursday ahead of a dying cold front. Summer like air dominates Friday as temperatures will be well above average but it is dry. A cold front will approach for the weekend and it should provide afternoon and evening storms both days. The front passes through Sunday with much cooler air behind it for Sunday night and Monday.
