Wet Sunday

Rain will continue to overspread western NC from south to north this morning and continue through the evening hours. The rain tapers off to showers tonight with a few lingering showers on Monday. Today will be cool, but rising temperatures overnight will lead to a noticeably milder Monday. Monday will be breezy, but otherwise a nice day for any outdoor activities / chores. A cold front moves through Monday evening with colder air returning. Tuesday is dry and cool, then clouds increase Tuesday night with some light rain or snow possible. Check out the discussion section below for all the details on the Thanksgiving forecast.

Forecast Discussion

A complex storm system continues to develop across the southern US this morning. An area of low pressure near the Texas/Louisiana border will lift north into the Great Lakes through tomorrow. As this happens, a warm front along the Gulf Coast will also lift north, reaching North Carolina tonight. Ahead of that front, rain will spread north across western NC through the morning hours. Periods of rain will then continue through this evening until the warm front arrives. Once the warm front passes, the steadier rain will move off to the north. However, showers will linger through the rest of the night. After it is all said and done, a decent soaking can be expected.

That warm front mentioned above will be well to the north on Monday which means we get a brief shot of milder air on Monday with highs well into the 60’s for most of the area (upper 50’s in the highest elevations). A few showers will be around on Monday until the cold front reaches the area, but plenty of dry hours are expected. Looks like a good day to do any remaining outdoor chores (hanging Christmas lights, leftover yardwork, etc). Of note, though, it will be a breezy day.

A cold front reaches the NC mountains Monday evening and then progresses east through the night. We are not expecting any arctic air behind this front, but it will be noticeably cooler come Tuesday. Now, the forecast turns more interesting Tuesday night into Wednesday. Over the last couple of days we have been talking about the potential of a coastal low developing along the East Coast. We continue to expect that to happen, but the question is how much, if any, moisture can make it this far west. For now, we are thinking light precipitation will break out later Tuesday night and continue into the day Wednesday followed by clearing Wednesday night. Temperatures will be borderline for snow, so right now we are thinking light rain may mix with or change to light snow Tuesday night with a rain/snow mix remaining possible into Wednesday. Again, lots of uncertainty right now, but it bears watching, especially with the busy holiday travel period coming up this week.

Beyond Wednesday, we are looking at dry and cool conditions for Thanksgiving and beyond with the next chance of rain holding off until later next weekend.
