Cool & Breezy

A cold front blasted through late last night and it didn't disappoint. Clouds peel back quickly this morning as drier and colder air races into western NC on a gusty northwest wind. After a cold start Monday, temperatures slowly gain ground the next couple of days. All in all, the upcoming holiday week is uneventful with seasonal to seasonally cool conditions.

Forecast Discussion

Early morning clouds quickly give way to mostly sunny skies as drier air arrives behind last night's cold front. Today is chilly and breezy, but a far cry from the northern mountains where flurries and snow showers are common in the High Country.

Thanksgiving week is one of the busiest travel weeks of the year and the weather cooperates to make travels less eventful. After a cold start Monday, high pressure transitions across the Southeast and off the coast Tuesday. Temperatures slowly moderate, but are offset by cloud cover Tuesday as some moisture pools along the mountains and foothills in a southerly flow. Sprinkles or some spotty light rain is not out of the question Tuesday afternoon or night, but as of today it looks too pitiful to include in the forecast box.

A cold front comes through Tuesday night with cooler air lagging behind it by about a day. Wednesday is seasonal, Thanksgiving day is a little cooler than average. Sunshine rules the roost Thanksgiving Day through Saturday making for great travel/shopping/football weather. Next up, the heaviest dose of cold air this season arrives next Sunday.
