Breezy, Becoming Sunny

Skies clear today making way for some well deserved sunshine that lasts through Friday. However, the brisk northwest wind that developed overnight persists through the evening and introduces some chilly air to the region. High pressure builds in from the west Thursday and the combination of clear skies and a calm wind will make for the first patchy frost of the season come Friday morning.

Forecast Discussion

We're on easy street forecasting until this weekend. Yesterday's front is at the coast and we await the arrival of high pressure heading our way courtesy of the Midwest. In between the front and the high a gusty northwest wind sticks around today, but diminishes to a large extent tonight.

Thursday is the pick of the week, seasonably cool and sunny. Conditions are ripe for frost to develop Friday morning, especially in valley locations. The average first frost for Boone is October 8th so we're not too far behind. If we manage to miss out Friday then Monday morning is the day.

Clouds increase Friday and showers develop overnight Friday into Saturday as another cold front approaches from the west. Light showers linger into the first half of Saturday followed by a gusty northwest wind Saturday afternoon. It's a busy Fall weekend up here with numerous activities going on Saturday. Fortunately the entire day is not ruined, but the morning hours will be a little touchy.

Much colder air invades Saturday night making for a relatively chilly Sunday by our recent standards. A gusty northwest wind will add to the cool equation as well. After a frosty start Monday temperatures slowly rebound early next week.
