Forecast Last Updated at Tuesday, September 27, 2016 at 6:14PM

Evening Thunder; Nighttime Clearing

Scattered showers and thunderstorms fired this afternoon just ahead of an inbound cold front and will gradually end this evening. Skies partially clear tonight, and Wednesday features more sunshine than today. Still, we will run the risk for a shower Wednesday afternoon and night. Thursday will feature variable cloudiness, scattered showers, along with the coolest temperatures since late May. We expect a bit more sunshine on Friday along with a continuation of seasonably cool temperatures.

Forecast Discussion

A cold front is slowly moving across western North Carolina today, and will be the focal point for showers. Cloudiness will keep temperatures a bit cooler. Clearing tonight will promote cooler temperatures behind the cold front.

While the frontal boundary will be just to our east on Wednesday, it’s going to be close enough to spark a couple showers later Wednesday afternoon and night.

An upper level low-pressure system will then take shape over the central and southern Appalachians on Thursday. It will generate more in the way of cloud cover along with scattered showers (perhaps a thundershower). It will also have you reaching for a jacket as we expect below-normal temperatures as a result of this potent weather feature.

Rain should be out of the picture by Friday as the upper low sloshes to the north of the area. With ample sunshine, temperatures will still be refreshingly cool.

Looking ahead, the weekend looks fantastic with nearly full sunshine and near-normal temperatures to bring in October.
