Forecast Last Updated at Friday, April 17, 2015 at 8:00PM

A Few Showers Friday Evening

Widely scattered showers and thundershowers will affect the Southern Appalachians this evening. Areas from Avery County NC and to the south will have greater coverage of rain than north. Saturday, on the other hand, will be very nice--warm with only a "cannot completely rule out" chance of an afternoon thundershower. If you have to ask about Sunday, you don't want to know... A chilly soaker, heavy rain at times.

In the spirit of Earth Day the High Country Chapter of FRIENDS of the Blue Ridge Parkway needs your help this Saturday morning April 18th. We are lending a hand to clean-up Price Park campground for the summer camping season. A few hours of your time will go a long way. Click here for more information and to sign-up.

Forecast Discussion

After a pleasant Friday, a band of showers and thundershowers is approaching our region this evening. Not everyone will get wet, but some will. Folks from Avery County NC and to the south will be more likely to see rain than folks from Watauga County north.

Saturday will be much nicer with more sun and even warmer temperatures. High pressure will be overhead for one day. That's all we get.

Saturday night, a backdoor front moves through (from the north) setting up another cool wedge down the Appalachians. Meanwhile, low pressure will move across the Mid-Mississippi River Valley. The result for us will be a cool soaker, heavy rain at times.

Monday afternoon, a front moves through from the west. Temperatures will be warmer with limited sunshine, but scattered showers and thundershowers will be in play.

Behind Monday's front, Tuesday and Wednesday bring mostly clear skies and seasonally cool temperatures. We are not "out of the woods" for frost potential at all. It's possible Tuesday or Wednesday night (and again the following weekend). Don't get too rambunctious with the plants just yet.

Thursday evening, the next front arrives with scattered showers possible in the afternoon and evening.
