Forecast Last Updated at Saturday, April 18, 2015 at 3:34PM

Tad Warmer Today; Clouds Likely to the East

After some patchy morning fog, we’ll kick off the weekend with drier conditions and warmer temperatures. Some areas (especially to the east) will maintain some cloud cover and temperatures will be somewhat subdued. Otherwise, areas to the north and west will likely catch some breaks in the clouds allowing temperatures to rebound slightly. Rising temperatures may bring about some stray thundershowers in the late afternoon to early evening. Clouds build back in this evening with our next “weather maker” system approaching. Overnight Saturday, showers will begin to move in and the “deluge” starts by Sunday morning with widespread moderate rain (heavy at times). Localized flooding may be an issue in some places.

Forecast Discussion

High pressure dominates the weather Saturday, but only for a short while. Clouds will stick around today in the east while areas north and west along the High Country will see some clearing and warmer temperatures. Afternoon thundershowers cannot be ruled out today as warming may provide some “fuel” for convection.

Overnight, high pressure moves east and settles in a wedge along the Appalachians while a warm front lifts over the TN Valley bringing showers into the region. Widespread rain develops Sunday across Western NC bringing the potential for flash flooding. Please remember, “Turn around, don’t drown!” if you encounter areas of high water. The soaking rains back off by Sunday evening with some showers and fog for the overnight hours.

There will be some changes across the High Country Monday with scattered showers and thunderstorms heralding in the arrival of a cold front. Thunderstorms are expected in the afternoon through the early evening and will die down after the front passes.

High pressure moves in behind the front Tuesday. We’ll likely see areas of patchy fog around Tuesday morning, but expect to dry out by noon with temperatures down a notch. With cooler temperatures settling in for Tuesday and Wednesday, some potential still remains for frost developing overnight and during the early morning. A dry front pushes in from the north Wednesday that will provide some clouds, but we don’t think there will be any precipitation associated with this for now. Clouds will hang around overnight Wednesday and into Thursday.

Clouds clear out during the day Thursday as high pressure builds back over Western NC. Friday looks dry and pleasant with high pressure hanging around.
