Wednesday Weather Discussion: A return to warmer weather for the second half of the week...

Good Wednesday to everyone across the Western Carolina, we are at the mid way point of the week and things are gradually improving in the weather department…

As you head to work or school this morning be on the lookout for some patchy dense fog. Please reduce your speed as you hit the roadways and allow a greater stopping distance. By 8-9 am the fog will begin to dissipate and we’re heading toward a warmer day compared to the past few. There will be a mix of sun and clouds for your Wednesday with a stray shower possible (20 to 30 percent at best). High’s today will top out in the mid 70’s.

We’ll have continued mild weather overnight with lows in the 50’s. Thursday, we will be on the lookout for a few showers as the remnant upper level features associated with Irma finally lifts out of the southeast. With the moisture in place that might serve as enough of a trigger for shower activity, the best chance would be in the foothills. Everyone will see high’s in the 80’s on Thursday.


Friday and the upcoming weekend is shaping up to be pretty good, in fact it will be a taste of late summer again. Afternoon high’s will spike up into the mid 80’s with moderate levels of humidity, night time lows will be mild in the 60’s. Its going be a great weekend to hit the pool one last time or spend time out on the lake with friends.

This general theme should last into the long range as there are no signs of any huge troughs moving into the eastern half of the country.

In the tropics, Jose is currently looping around in weak steering currents out in the Atlantic. There are no signs from our model data of Jose being a threat to the US, we’ll watch it for any possible changes but at this time we are looking at likely re-curve into the Atlantic by late in the weekend.

Have a great Wednesday!
