Here We Go!
Warm and dry high pressure sets up shop today. It's upward and onward this afternoon. The only hiccup in the short term forecast is a decaying front that brushes the region tomorrow evening prompting widely scattered PM showers and thundershowers. Temperatures rebound Friday culminating into an early season heat surge Saturday. Go ahead and start thinking of your excuse to cut ties early from the cubicle Friday afternoon.
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.

After a fairly long stretch of rainy and cool the switch is flipped in the other direction. A bubble of high pressure today provides a fast temperature rebound under sunny skies. The spring green is really going to pop this afternoon.
A waning cold front approaches from the west Thursday. We'll contend with a few afternoon and evening showers/thundershowers in response. Clouds and showers keep temperatures in check. However, the lid comes off Friday and especially Saturday as an early season Bermuda high configuration takes the helm in the western Atlantic. Friday is dry and Saturday has a "cannot rule out" opportunity for a late afternoon or evening thundershower. Consider MerleFest as part of your stellar outdoor weekend agenda.
A more potent cold front is slated for passage Monday. Clouds increase ahead of the front Sunday afternoon with isolated afternoon and evening thundershowers. Monday is rather wet. Clearing commences Tuesday as temperatures fall to seasonal levels.
