Wednesday Weather Briefing: Continued Spring Fever...

Spring fever in late February continues for the Southeast US including the Western Carolinas and in the near term is could only get stronger.


Yesterday was our first taste of it as clouds finally broke and southwest winds pumped temperatures well up into the 60’s and low 70’s.


Today’s weather is going to feature deep southeast flow bringing warmth and moisture off the Atlantic. Thankfully for today moisture will not be deep enough to produce rainfall…but it will bring a taste of humid conditions.



For today we will have partly cloudy conditions with locations in the lower 70’s.





With a strong high pressure aloft off the East Coast and trough sliding into the Southwestern part of the country, a southerly and stable flow will persist for the second half of the work week. Overnight temperatures will remain mild with most folks beginning their morning’s in the mid 50’s with afternoon temps in the 70’s for Thursday, Friday and Saturday…





Once we get to Sunday, high pressure may relax itself and that could allow a frontal boundary to finally push moisture back into the Western Carolinas, in the form of rain showers.


One thing that is a by-product of the abnormally warm conditions is an increase in pollen values…they’re starting to show up especially mold…if you are sensitive early season allergens, please take all the proper precautions…





Have a great Wednesday!
