Forecast Last Updated at Saturday, April 29, 2017 at 6:55AM

June-ish Saturday

It’s the warmest day so far this spring, as high temperatures this afternoon resemble June more than the end of April. Expect plenty of sunshine; Just be aware that there will be an isolated afternoon thunderstorm around, affecting a small minority. Sunday will have a few extra clouds around, keeping temperatures suppressed a bit, but still warm. A stray afternoon shower or thundershower might get a little more numerous by later Sunday night, although the best coverage of rainfall will come on Monday.

The Golf-O-Meter is now the Raccoon-O-Meter celebrating MerleFest in Wilkesboro, NC, through Sunday! There’s a full schedule today with great music all day on 12 stages. Today's weather will be summerlike with lots of sunshine and just an isolated late-day thunderstorm around the Foothills. Sunday will have a few extra clouds, but still nice and warm. Only an isolated late-day shower or thundershower will be possible. See our Hour by Hour MerleFest Forecast for details.

Forecast Discussion

The weather map configuration this weekend is summerlike, with an early-season Bermuda High pressure system in command. That will dictate much above-normal temperatures, particularly today, as we run nearly 15-degrees above normal. An isolated afternoon thunderstorm is possible during the “heat” of the day.

Low-level moisture will be on the increase on Sunday, increasing clouds a bit, but still not detracting from a nice, warm day. Again, an isolated shower or thundershower will be possible, with perhaps somewhat better chances arriving later Sunday night.

The best chance for rain will come on Monday as a cold front traverses the region. Clearing gets underway Monday night, and it will be noticeably cooler. Tuesday will be bright, sunny, cooler and pleasant.

A storm system emerging into the lower Mississippi River valley by midweek will head our way for Thursday, sending a strong cold front in our direction. Showers and thunderstorms are expected with this system, and this could be a healthy rainfall producer.

Unsettled weather could linger into Friday, as the weather turns decidedly cooler for the end of next week and the start of the following weekend.
