Wet... Then Sunshine

A cool wedge of high pressure and an approaching storm system spells more wet weather for the first half of the weekend. If the ongoing clouds and rain are getting you down, fret not… sunshine will return soon! A sweeping cold front will move across western North Carolina on Sunday and behind it much drier air and gusty down-sloping winds will work in unison to provide afternoon sunshine. Until then, we’ll deal with showers and gloom for the first part of the weekend, from now through the first part of Sunday morning. But the weather Sunday afternoon into next week looks nice with a well-deserved stretch of dry weather and tame temperatures.

Forecast Discussion

High pressure centered over New England is wedging down the coast today. Meanwhile, an front will be stationary well to our south as a new cold front approaches from the west. Warm and moist air from the south will overrun the cool wedge layer at the surface resulting in occasional rain and areas of fog today.

The old front to the south will return north and move through the area as warm front late tonight into Sunday morning. This combined with the approaching cold front will keep showers in play as a prefrontal band of showers moving through during the overnight hours into Sunday morning. Expect warming overnight temperatures and much milder/warmer Sunday morning as we are briefly in the warm sector ahead of the front.

The front progresses through western North Carolina west-to-east during the mid-late morning hours, pushing any lingering showers to the coast. Behind the front, expect increasing winds out of the west to northwest becoming gusty by the afternoon. The higher terrain will experience winds gusts to 5O mph, with gusts of 30 mph common elsewhere.

Things finally quiet down next week. Winds diminish during the day Monday with the influence of high pressure. The stretch of dry weather should persist through next work week, although one of the forecast models paints a few light showers Wednesday through Friday. We are siding with the drier model solutions next week. Temperatures will be seasonable for late February.
