Forecast Last Updated at Monday, September 22, 2014 at 9:44PM

Clear and Cool with Fall in the Air

Fall begins at 10:29 PM tonight. A front moved across the Appalachians Sunday evening delivering Fall air almost right on schedule. Tonight and Tuesday night will have a nip in the air--the first brushes with the 30s for "cold hole" locations like Valle Crucis and Banner Elk. Pleasant weather continues into Wednesday.

A new version of the app is now available for both Android and Apple products. The new version includes NWS alerts, a refresh button, SplashScreen, and better choices for font sizes.

Forecast Discussion

The front that moved through Sunday evening now sits nearly stationary along the Southeastern coast. The center of cool, dry high pressure will move slowly from the Ohio Valley toward New England overnight through Wednesday. We'll be the beneficiaries of pleasant Fall temperatures and sunshine through most of Wednesday.

The thorn in the side for this evenings forecast is low pressure that will build Wednesday into Thursday along the Southeast Coast. There's still questions about how far west this low will be and the extent of moisture into the Appalachians. We've taken a fairly cautious approach with the forecast--introducing clouds the the chance of spotty light rain Wednesday night through Saturday morning.

Our first Fall weekend looks pretty nice with more sun and pleasant temperatures. However, by Sunday night, low pressure building in the Gulf of Mexico will spread clouds northward. Rain is possible by late Sunday night; then Monday and Tuesday look wet.
