Temperature Rebound

After a chilly start to the week, temperatures rebound today like a young Charles Barkley. It will be the warmest day of the week--a remarkable recovery. A front from the west brushes us tomorrow with widely scattered afternoon thundershowers. Friday and Saturday, temperatures surge again. Friday looks dry. We cannot completely rule out a stray afternoon thundershower Saturday.

The Golf-O-Meter is now the Raccoon-O-Meter in anticipation of MerleFest in Wilkesboro, NC, Thursday through Sunday! Overall the weather looks terrific. Unusual warmth will be the most notable weather feature. An isolated thunder shower is possible there late Thursday and Sunday. Friday looks all-dry. Saturday has just a barely worth mentioning chance of an afternoon thundershower. See our Hour by Hour MerleFest Forecast for details.

Forecast Discussion

The low that plagued our weather last weekend into Tuesday morning is exiting off Long Island. High pressure in the Atlantic is building into the Southeast resulting in a good heat surge. Enjoy the warmest day of the year thus far.

A front from the west makes it to Western NC late Thursday. We'll have more clouds and widely scattered afternoon showers and thundershowers Thursday.

But the front retreats to the north quickly Friday as high pressure centered in the Atlantic regains control of the Southeast. A second heat surge develops, more impressive than today, making Saturday even warmer than today. Friday will be dry, but we cannot completely rule out a stray afternoon thundershower Saturday

The next front arrives Monday. Ahead of that front isolated afternoon thundershowers break out Sunday, then Monday looks rather rainy.

Temperatures moderate back to more seasonable levels Monday and Tuesday. After the rainy start to the workweek, expect clearing skies Tuesday and pleasant weather.
