Good Morning Folks! The high clouds we knew would move into the region today seem to be slower to exit than we originally thought and this will lead to clearing skies this morning with mostly sunny skies to end the day. Temps will be remain on the cool side of normal due to the cloud cover, only rising to the mid 50’s – upper 60’s and there is no rain expected with this minor disturbance. As we move into the overnight hours we will find mostly clear skies overhead and this will bring temps down into the upper 30’s – mid 40’s depending upon elevation, making for a chilly night for local high school football.
Saturday is Homecoming Day for WCU so mind that area and the subsequent traffic, especially around game time, which is scheduled to kickoff at 2pm. Temps look pleasant, upper 50’s – low 70’s and sunshine will be overhead all day with a light breeze out of the north around 5 – 10mph. We encourage a light jacket for those tailgating before 10am and sunglasses or a hat for those attending the game as the sun will be beating down on the visitor’s side (almost a sold out crowd as of this morning; 1,500 tickets remain). Moving into the overnight hours we will find another round of mostly clear – partly cloudy skies overhead and temps will dip into the upper 30’s – mid 40’s once again.
Sunday looks to be a degree or two warmer than Saturday with another round of sunshine overhead and this fair weather will extend into Monday and part of Tuesday as well. Temps will reach the upper 50’s – low 70’s Sunday as well as Monday, however by Tuesday we cool off ever so slightly (a degree or two cooler than Monday) as partly cloudy skies enter the region late in the day. No rain is expected during this timeframe and overnight lows will be chilly but not cold as they dip into the upper 30’s – upper 40s into early next week.
Wednesday and beyond looks a bit fuzzy on the modeling, however there does seems to be a decent shot at isolated – scattered showers late Tuesday into Wednesday and this is most welcomed as it would be roughly a week and a half since the last rain event. Temps will only rise to the mid 50’s – upper 60’s once again and there should be either partly sunny or mostly cloudy skies overhead Wednesday with light rainfall totals, perhaps under a quarter of an inch but to be honest we are not entirely sure at this time. Light showers may continue into next Thursday as the front that brings rain Wednesday looks slow to move out of the region by Thursday.
Overall, passing clouds today, gorgeous tailgate and game day weather tomorrow, pleasant Sunday and Monday with increasing clouds Tuesday and light showers Wednesday. ENJOY!
