Good Morning Folks! We are waking up to temps in the mid 30’s for most spots across SW NC, with towns such as Franklin, Sylva and Waynesville flirting with the freezing mark and dealing with patchy frost. The sunshine will be slow to warm up temps this morning as our afternoon highs only reach the upper 40’s across to the ridgetops to the low 60’s in the lowest valleys. A stiff NW wind will keep cooler air across the region all day and will also become gusty at times, reaching up to 15 – 20mph (making it feel even cooler). As we move into the overnight hours we will find the wind dying down somewhat and this will allow temps to once again plunge into the low – upper 30’s with another round of frost or freeze for the region; mostly clear skies overhead.
Thursday through the weekend is looking fair, dry and somewhat chilly as temps remain slightly below normal to start with normal temps to end the weekend; rising to the mid 50’s – upper 60’s tomorrow, upper 50’s – low 70’s Friday and Saturday and possibly flirting with the mid 70’s by Sunday. Mostly sunny skies will hang overhead each day and the overnight hours will be calm and clear, with temps dipping into the upper 30’s – mid 40’s depending upon elevation. Needless to say, we have a classic stretch of fall weather starting tomorrow and continuing through the weekend.
