Warm Culmination Today-WED

The next two days will be the warmest at least through the weekend as skies remain partly sunny with just isolated afternoon showers and thundershowers around. After a morning shower or thundershower first thing Thursday, it turns cooler. In fact, it will be cool enough for a heightened risk for frost by Saturday morning across the Foothills. Saturday will be the pick of the weekend as wet weather returns Sunday.

Forecast Discussion

We have an active spring weather pattern over the eastern part of the United States. It’s a mild, prefrontal environment today and Wednesday featuring mixed skies and perhaps a pop-up afternoon shower or thundershower both days. A cold front will then sweep across Thursday morning, concluding the shower chances and ushering in a decidedly cooler air mass.

Friday will be sunny and noticeably cooler. With high pressure overhead Friday night, there will be considerable frost around by daybreak Saturday (you haven’t planted anything too early, have you? :).

Saturday definitely looks like the nicest of the two weekend days for outside activities. Low-pressure organizing over the Arklatex region will track to the northeast, spreading rain back into western North Carolina Sunday, probably concluding by early Monday.
