Spring is Here!

Good Thursday everyone! I hope that your day is off to a good start! 

We will keep it short and sweet today, as we continue to push out High Impact Weather briefings on the potential of Severe Weather late this weekend. 

Your Thursday and Friday will be carbon copies of each other as High pressure is in full control of the area. That high pressure is situated just off the Carolina coast. That is allowing Southwest winds into the area. This leads to a few things for us here in Western North Carolina. First and foremost will be the warm temperatures for the next few days. Most areas will be well in the mid to upper 70's and a few locations may touch 80 degrees. Also we will see more pollen in the area. Those Southwest winds will push all the pollen from South Carolina, Georgia, Alabama, and Mississippi into our area.

By Saturday we will see not only that southerly flow, but more humidity into the area. It will feel very humid on Saturday and with temperatures approaching 80, it may feel uncomfortable for some. That will lead to a strong cold front forecasted to move through the  area on Sunday. 

Severe Weather is possible on Sunday, still some uncertainty to timing and instability. We will continue to update the High Impact Weather Briefings, so keep on the look out for them. So just have in the back of your mind, that we may have some adverse weather late this weekend. 

After the cold front passage, we have a chilly Monday lined up. Partly to Mostly Cloudy skies will be the main trend, but some of the mountain communities could experience a little northwest flow snow. Temperatures will be in the mid to upper 50's and quite breezy. But the warm up starts on Tuesday as we approach 70 degrees, and by next Wednesday we are in the mid to upper 70's.  

 

Have a great day!
