Wednesday Weather Briefing: Seasonably cool, rain chances for the weekend followed by more cold

Good Wednesday to everyone…we hope that you are doing well today and for those still in recovery from the severe weather on Monday, today’s weather should continue to be nice overall to assist in the cleanup.


It will be on the cool side through as a secondary frontal boundary moved through late Tuesday delivering colder air into the region. High’s today will struggle remaining in the 50’s in the foothills, A few Piedmont locations will get up into the lower 60’s.


With clear skies and cold air in place, temperatures will quickly fall after sunset. By the time you wake up first thing Thursday morning, scattered frost my accompany you out he door with lows in the 30’s.


Friday and Saturday will provide a brief moderation as the next front and deep trough invades the central part of the US. By late Saturday this front/trough combo will be enough to bring another round of showers to the region mainly Saturday night.




We don’t see this being a heavy rain event at this time but models are showing a respectable ½ inch to 1 inch depending on your location. We’ll keep an eye on this in case of any changes that may happen. High’s in the first half of the weekend will be in the 60’s with 40’s at night.


The deep trough will slide into the Eastern US on Sunday bringing what looks to be the coldest air of the fall season to the Western Carolinas on blustery winds. Sunday’s high may occur fairly early in the day with falling temps. This is setting up a chilly start to the new work week…infact we may be dealing with frost and freeze conditions, so this is an early head’s up to the potential that the growing season may possibly end for a few sections of the coverage area with this next batch of cold air.




Have a great Wednesday,
