Chamber of Commerce Weather

You couldn’t ask for a much better afternoon. A few areas of valley fog have give way to sunny skies and pleasantly warm temperatures. A cold front quickly moves in tomorrow, bringing widely scattered PM and evening showers and t-showers. The front fades from the map Friday with warmer temperatures and dry conditions. The Bermuda High muscles it’s way in for Saturday, spiking temperatures with a tiny chance of a boomer. Sunday will cool off a little bit, with modestly higher chances of late day showers and t-showers.

The Golf-O-Meter is now the Raccoon-O-Meter in anticipation of MerleFest in Wilkesboro, NC, Thursday through Sunday! Overall the weather looks terrific. Unusual warmth will be the most notable weather feature. An isolated thunder shower is possible there late Thursday and Sunday. Friday looks all-dry. Saturday has just a barely worth mentioning chance of an afternoon thundershower. See our Hour by Hour MerleFest Forecast for details.

Forecast Discussion

A narrow ridge of high pressure works its way across the southern Appalachians today. The result will be warmer temperatures and plentiful sunshine.

A cold front zips in from the west on Thursday. There is enough shear and instability along the front for widely scattered showers and t-showers late in the afternoon, extending into the late evening hours. Overall, it will still be a nice day.

A big ridge of high pressure, with sub-tropical origins, builds in for Friday and Saturday. This will bring warmer and generally dry conditions. By Saturday there will be enough moisture in the air for just a couple PM showers and t-showers to pop on the ridges, but most of us will stay dry.

A stronger cold front approaches on Sunday. The coverage of showers and t-showers will increase a little late in the day and overnight. Some models are slower with the front, keeping a good chance of showers and storms through the day on Monday. Others clear us out early in the day. I’m leaning towards the slower solution, so I’ve taken out the “AM” wording this package. Tuesday looks great regardless.
