Good Morning Folks! Other than a warmer than normal morning low in Waynesville (14°F warmer than forecasted), the morning is moving along as expected with mostly cloudy skies overhead and isolated showers slated for the afternoon hours. We’ll clear out tomorrow with a slight breeze across the region and temps will push back into the above normal range, peaking on Saturday and remaining anywhere from 8 – 10 degrees above average Sunday through the middle of next week. No rain is expected minus the light amounts we’ll pick up today so it’s expected the drought will continue across the region and the Southeast. The long range models are hinting at a cooler than normal period beginning the second week of November, coupled with a stormy pattern that may bring the Southeast some much needed rain (and snow). All in all, minus today’s cloud cover and spotty shower activity, we’ll deal with another long stretch of dry and sunny weather.
Today will keep partly sunny – mostly cloudy skies overhead throughout the day and this will work to keep temps from climbing above the upper 50’s – low 70’s depending upon elevation. The majority of the action will arrive later this afternoon, sometime around 2 – 6pm but don’t hold much hope for decent rainfall amounts as totals should be under a tenth of an inch. Clouds and showers clear the region tonight and because of the gradual decline in the cloud cover, temps will settle back into the upper 40’s – low 50’s depending upon elevation.
Friday into early next week brings back mostly sunny skies and temps above normal for this time of the year, hitting the upper 50’s – mid 70’s tomorrow and peaking to the low 60’s – upper 70’s Saturday and Sunday. Monday will keep temps to the low 60’s – mid 70’s and generally this will roll into the latter part of next week, although this far out our forecast is likely to change. Overnight lows will match the above normal afternoon highs and settle into the mid 40’s – low 50’s each night, keeping thoughts of winter at bay.
Next week seems to be a continuation of the dry and sunny weather this weekend, with temps perhaps cooling off slightly by a few degrees but overall it will remain warm and not Fall like outside.
Overall, spotty showers today, warm tomorrow, hot Saturday and then a continuation of warm temps and sunny weather Sunday into the latter part of next week. ENJOY!
