Good Morning Folks! We’re off to a good start today with some light fog and sunny skies overhead, which will continue for the most part and allow temps to soar into the mid 80’s this afternoon. Clouds increase tomorrow and showers develop late in the day, followed by scattered showers and thunderstorms for most of the day on Sunday. Isolated showers and thunderstorms will carry over into Monday and then we dry up somewhat Tuesday through Thursday of next week, although isolated showers are still a possibility. Temps this weekend will be warm yet cooler than today and by Tuesday of next we’ll be at or below average for the first time in weeks, so a much deserved cool down is on the way for the first week of May. All in all we’ll deal with some heat then showers then cool down to a typical spring setup with isolated showers each afternoon.
Today will feature some clouds passing overhead before midday but overall mostly sunny skies will reign supreme today, allowing temps to reach the upper 60’s – mid 80’s depending upon elevation. This is an increase in temps from the previous forecast and towns such as Bryson City, Franklin, Sylva and Waynesville will hit the mid 80’s while the rest of us sit in the low 80’s (pavement influence). Overnight into Saturday partly cloudy skies will develop as moisture increases across the region, keeping temps to the low – mid 50’s depending upon elevation.
