Saturday Futurecast: Wet pattern continues but signs of improvement...

Good Saturday morning…this week has been very active across the Western Carolinas as an upper low pressure has transported deep tropical moisture up from the Caribbean up the entire East Coast of the US. The result here locally has been a widespread soaking rainfall for everyone but for some along the Blue Ridge the rain has been excessive. Rainfall amounts from portions of NW Rutherford County up to Northern Caldwell County has been generally in the 4-8 inch range with localized spots of 10+ inches.

 

The main culprit of this rain event is finally moving north of the region as the upper low is situated across Kentucky this morning and will move into the Central Appalachians by tonight…this will finally shunt the deepest moisture content off to the east, however there is still enough moisture in place for periods of light rain/drizzle and by afternoon some more convective showers…
