Forecast Last Updated at Friday, August 22, 2014 at 7:03AM

Another Warm One

Another warm day is on tap for the region today with above normal afternoon highs. As we have seen over the last few days, a few pop up thunderstorms can’t be ruled out (a few of which could be on the strong side). Additionally, we will have to keep an eye on storms developing to our NW as some of these may clip parts of the area later today, especially across NW NC and SW VA. A cool front moves in on Saturday with a slightly better coverage of showers and thundershowers. Behind that front, cool and grey conditions will develop for a short period across the area from Saturday night through early Monday.

Forecast Discussion

An upper level high remains parked over the southern US at this time with a decent heat wave continuing across many southern states. Around the periphery of the high, numerous clusters of showers and storms are ongoing from Iowa to Virginia. Most of this activity is expected to remain to the north of the local area today. However, storms upstream in the Ohio Valley will have to be watched closely as they drop SE through the day and into tonight. A line of storms approached NW NC and SW VA last night, but quickly fell apart as it neared the Blue Ridge. A similar story can’t be ruled out later today or this evening. Overall, though, we only expect isolated showers and storms for most of western NC. Of note, any storm that develops today could be on the strong side with gusty winds and hail.

Temperatures will be the other story today as the warm/very warm conditions of late continue. Any storms that form later today will keep temperatures in check for some, but most areas will see above normal highs this afternoon. Like we mentioned yesterday, though, we are not expecting any record-breaking heat.

Significant changes come over the weekend as high pressure over New England pushes a cool front south along the east side of the Appalachians. Temperatures will take a small drop Saturday, then really cool off by Sunday. We’ll go from above normal temps today to below normal temps by Sunday. As the front moves through, we expect widely scattered to scattered showers and thundershowers Saturday. Behind the front, a moist easterly flow will allow for lots of clouds, areas of fog, and patchy light rain / drizzle from Saturday night through Sunday night, especially right along the Blue Ridge. As is typical in this type of setup, areas right along the TN/NC border won’t be quite as grey, foggy as areas further east.

The cool wedge gradually begins to break down on Monday with more peaks of sunshine and slightly milder temperatures. We really begin to clear out Tuesday with lots of sun expected through the middle of next week. Temperatures will moderate during this time as well, but should stay close to average for late August.
