Skies feature bright sunshine today, and it will be breezy before diminishing tonight. Wednesday will be the mildest day of the workweek before temperatures take a bit of tumble for Thursday and beyond. Aside from some spotty light rain late Wednesday night and some snow showers up in the mountains Friday and into the weekend, we’re entering a dry weather pattern here in the Foothills.

Forecast Discussion

Low-pressure responsible for wet weather over the weekend and yesterday is off the Mid-Atlantic coast and headed slowly to the northeast. High pressure building in behind this departing system will promote plenty of sunshine with rather nice temperatures, albeit a bit breezy.

Wednesday looks like the pick of the week with sunshine and highs well into the 60s.

A cold front will bring a pattern change back to colder weather, starting on Thursday. As the front comes through, expect some spotty light rain or sprinkles late Wednesday night. Then, we enter a mostly clear but colder period Thursday through early next week.

Temperatures will run a few degrees below normal, instead of the 10-15 above we’ve experienced over the last couple weeks. While the weather here east of the mountains will be dry, the colder northwest flow regime will be advantageous for occasional bouts of snow showers across the NC Mountains from late Thursday and beyond. We'll be watching a stronger disturbance inbound for late Sunday into early Monday for the potential for some precipitation breaking east of the mountains. For now, we've kept the forecast dry.
