Forecast Last Updated at Wednesday, October 20, 2021 at 6:12PM

Mild Through Thursday

Pleasant weather continues into Thursday. Clouds increase late Thursday and Thursday night prior to a front arriving early Friday morning. A light shower is possible Thursday evening through Friday morning as the front passes. Skies clear Friday night setting up a nice but cooler, or more seasonal, weekend ahead. Our next chance of rain arrives early next week.

Forecast Discussion

High pressure remains centered over the Southern Appalachians through Thursday. Milder temperatures push into the region as the high shifts east and a front makes an approach from the west.

The aforementioned front arrives early Friday morning. We'll see clouds begin to increase late Thursday with a light shower possible Thursday night into early Friday morning. The front moves east during the daytime on Friday and we'll keep at least the outside chance of a shower or two around for the daytime, although most of the organized and more widespread showers remain well off to our east.

Temperatures are cooler Friday and Saturday, but only cool back to more seasonal numbers. Don't expect a chill like we saw last weekend. A warm front will pass to our west Sunday from south to north. It's close enough to add clouds and I cannot rule out a passing light shower on Sunday. The best chance for a shower will be in the extreme NW corner of NW NC. Temperatures also get a slight boost on Sunday with a milder flow from the south in the wake of the warm front.

There are timing disagreements on the arrival of our next weather-maker for next week, but it looks like our next opportunity for rainfall comes Monday night and Tuesday. Temperatures on Monday are mild but cool back a few degrees on Tuesday with added cloud cover and precip chances.
