No appreciable rain fell across the region last night and this morning we notice that most of the shower activity is moving out of the area, with the bulk of the action off to the east.

Temps currently are in the mid 40’s across the lower elevations while the higher elevation ridgelines sit in the low – mid 50’s, mainly due to radiational cooling effects. We’ll hit the low 70’s across the lower elevations this afternoon and for the higher elevations above 5000’, they’ll only reach the mid – upper 50’s with a stiff breeze out of the WSW. Looking into the overnight hours we expect some minor cloud cover to develop closer to the TN line as moisture swings around the upper level low to our north, allowing temps to once again dip into the low – upper 40’s across SW NC. Enjoy today as it looks to be our coldest day for roughly a week, but don’t fret as temps will only climb back to normal then slightly above normal as we move into next week.
