Warmer With a Few Showers

You'll notice warmer temperatures today and tomorrow compared to the last few days. There will also be some showers that dampen spirits a little today and tomorrow. We turn cool and breezy Wednesday and some areas could see the first frost of the season by Thursday morning. If you don't get frost Thursday morning, a colder air mass is on tap for late in the weekend and just about all areas should see the first freeze of the season next Monday morning. After Tuesday, the next decent chance of rain is Saturday.

Forecast Discussion

Warmer and more humid air has moved into the High Country this morning. This air is ahead of a cold front which will move through tonight. The front could spark a few showers today. The front gets hung up a bit to our south and that will keep us with a chance of showers on Tuesday as well.

Another cold front from the northwest barrels through on Wednesday and that will cool us down a little. Wednesday will be a breezy day and if the winds die down enough by Thursday morning, some areas could see the first frost of the season. Cool high pressure will control our weather through Saturday when another cold front approaches western NC. That front should move through Saturday bringing us some showers and the air behind it is chilly giving us a cool and breezy day Sunday. We could see our first freeze of the season Monday morning.
