Forecast Last Updated at Saturday, December 4, 2021 at 7:10AM

Not as Warm

Friday was a remarkably warm day. Almost everyone set record high temperatures. Some of these exceeded previous record highs by 3-5 degrees, and for some, it was among the 5 warmest December days on record (Boone, Asheville, and Hickory are in that list).
A dry backdoor front moves south across the Southern Appalachians this morning knocking 8-10 degrees off high temperatures Saturday. However, temperatures are still above seasonal averages. Sunday will have more clouds with a front approaching from the west. We'll be closer to "seasonal" for high temperatures. Showers will be possible late Sunday night. Monday has occasional showers followed by cooler weather.

Forecast Discussion

A dry, backdoor front moves south across the Southern Appalachians this morning. High temperatures today are about 10 degrees less warm than Friday but still above seasonal averages.

Cooler air settles from the northeast in Sunday under mostly cloudy skies.

A front from the west reaches us late Monday. Temperatures will be somewhat warmer during the daytime. Showers are possible Sunday night, but more likely Monday afternoon and early evening.

Much cooler air arrives behind the front Monday night into Tuesday. We'll have less clouds briefly Monday night and Tuesday.

A return of moisture will be quick as Monday's front drifts back to the north with low pressure moving eastward across the Southeast. Clouds return late Tuesday. Rain probably develops late Tuesday night and lasts through much of Wednesday. A shower or two may persist into early Thursday. A brief period of wintry mix, while unlikely, is possible late Tuesday night into early Wednesday.

Lots of clouds remain Thursday and Friday with the front just to our south and east. Hopefully we can keep dry weather Thursday afternoon into Friday.
