Published: 6.26.17 9:38am
Good Morning Folks! Some of us are checking the date as temps feel more like September than late June, with a low of 46.7°F in Maggie Valley but overall temps are in the upper 40’s – low 50’s. Sunshine dominates the landscape today but temps will only reach levels about 6 – 8 degrees below average and this cooler weather carries over into Tuesday, although clouds and light showers move in tomorrow morning. Sunshine returns Wednesday with temps rising to the upper 70’s and by Thursday we return to the low 80’s, which will be the norm for the rest of the week and weekend. Sunshine continues into Thursday but as moisture filters back into the region we can expect isolated showers and thunderstorms Friday through the weekend, with coverage peaking on Saturday. At this point in time we don’t expect a washout for the weekend, but it would be a good call to plan alternative activities in case it rains overhead.
Sunshine today will not be able to bring temps above the low 60’s – mid 70’s depending upon elevation and tonight clouds will develop as moisture streams into the area, producing partly cloudy skies and another cool overnight low in the upper 40’s – mid 50’s.
Tuesday features isolated showers and passing clouds and although it won’t be as nice as today, temps will remain cool as they hold to the low 60’s – mid 70’s. Tuesday night might be our coldest night of the week with temps in the mid 40’s – mid 50’s, although the clouds will need to clear out beforehand to bring temps that low and there is a possibility they linger past midnight.
Wednesday and Thursday return sunshine to the region and Friday through Sunday brings back normal summertime conditions, with an increase in temps and humidity levels. This increase in moisture will also fire up isolated showers and thunderstorms Friday and perhaps scattered showers Saturday and Sunday. Temps Wednesday hit the mid 60’s – upper 70’s but climb to the upper 60’s – low 80’s Thursday and plateau to the low 70’s – low 80’s Friday into the weekend; overnight lows return to the low – mid 60’s by week’s end.
Overall, gorgeous today, spotty showers tomorrow then a gradual warming trend Wednesday into Friday with showers later on this week. ENJOY!
