Cool & Damp Ahead

The High Country is in for some cool and damp weather through Monday. A reminder that Fall isn't too far away. Today was the warmest for the next several days and we must contend with scattered showers and thunderstorms this evening. Tomorrow and Sunday will be cool and cloudy with occasional fog and drizzle and maybe a shower or two. We start to see a little more sun early next week but it will remain cool and damp. By the middle of next week, we should begin to feel more summery with sunny mornings and afternoon storm chances.

Forecast Discussion

A cold front will be moving through this evening and settling over SC Saturday. It will bring scattered showers and thunderstorms through the evening hours and tonight. Some of the storms could be on the strong side. The front combined with cool high pressure over New England wedging down the east side of the Appalachians will produce cloudy and damp weather through Monday. It doesn't look like the nicest of weekends with lots of clouds, fog, drizzle and light rain at times for much of the High Country; especially the eastern slopes. Temperatures will be below average.

By Tuesday, the front will be far enough south and the high will begin to lose its grip so we'll start to see a little more sun and temperatures will warm up some. Another cold front moving in from the northwest will increase our chances of afternoon showers and thundershowers on Tuesday and more so on Wednesday. The front looks to move through Thursday setting us up for a nice ending to the week.
