Good Morning Folks! You might have noticed some pop up showers on the horizon as most of the region remained dry yesterday, with the only action in town occurring along the Great Balsams, heading SE into the escarpment. Generally a quarter- half inch of rain fell with the highest amounts around 0.69” just below the SC state line at Burrells Ford. We’ll see a similar pattern to yesterday play out in that isolated showers and thunderstorms develop along the ridgelines, same for tomorrow with a slightly better chance for showers deeper into the heart of SW NC. Sunday brings us a typical mid summer setup with enough moisture present for showers to develop just about anywhere and Monday provides us with a round of afternoon thunderstorms due to a cold front crossing the area. The middle of next week settles down a bit and we may revert to a Sunday type setup or perhaps a drier one, we’re not entirely sure at this time as drier air may migrate into the region on the heels of the departing front. Temps all the while will cool down and it will be noticeable as we go from the upper 80’s – low 90’s today to the low – mid 80’s by Sunday/Monday.
Isolated showers and thunderstorms today and tomorrow will develop along the ridgelines, while Sunday features pop up showers just about anywhere across the region. Temps will hit the upper 70’s – low 90’s this afternoon, cool down to the mid 70’s... click here for more
