Lower Elevations Remain in the 60's through Next Week

Published: 2.17.17 7:53am

Good Morning Folks! Temps across the valleys are in the low – mid 20’s, while the ridgelines sit in the mid 30’s for the most part, but don’t fret as temps warm to well above average levels this afternoon under sunny skies. Clouds return to the region tonight and continue to fill in through the day tomorrow, with isolated showers developing Saturday afternoon into the overnight hours. Sunday brings back sunshine and this rolls into Monday with temps hitting the low 70’s across the valley! Moisture returns to the region Tuesday as clouds increase across the region and isolated to scattered showers are expected Wednesday, possibly rolling into Thursday. The main highlights moving forward will be the light rain events Saturday afternoon and Wednesday, but we’re betting people will be talking more about the above average temps. Regionally the entire Southeast is on pace to have a top five February on record in terms of above average temps, but we are still holding onto hope for wintry weather to develop in the month of March. 

Today will bring us sunny skies and temps will skyrocket from the low 20’s to the upper 60’s across the valley, with many of us lugging around our cold weather jackets this afternoon. Sunny skies bring temps into the mid – upper 50’s across the higher elevations above 3500’ and all of SW NC will notice clouds increasing across the area, with temps dipping into the upper 20’s – mid 30’s. 

Saturday and Sunday offer up isolated showers with partly sunny – mostly cloudy skies tomorrow and then another dose of sunshine to round out the weekend. Temps Saturday hit the low – upper 50’s across the region and rebound slightly to the upper 50’s – mid 60’s Sunday afternoon. Isolated showers are more likely across the southernmost portion of the region than say the TN line area, but for the most part it will be hit and miss coverage with light shower intensities. Overnight into Sunday will keep a few showers going, but by the early morning hours most of the action will be east of the area and clearing skies will develop early in the day. Overnight into Monday temps dip into the upper 30’s – mid 40’s and this will be our range for most of next week, keeping wintry precip at bay for another five to seven days. 

Monday through Thursday of next features temps well above normal as they push into the mid 50’s – upper 60’s each afternoon, with Monday and Tuesday being the warmest of the bunch, while Wednesday and Thursday cool down slightly with more cloud cover overhead. Showers develop Tuesday night and should continue in an on and off fashion through Wednesday, possibly winding down Thursday late morning. Overnight lows will settle into the upper 30’s – upper 40’s for the most part and it seems next weekend will be a dry one, with temps returning to the low 70’s across the valley. 

Overall, warm through late next week and only a few disturbances will bring us isolated showers Saturday afternoon into early Sunday morning and again Tuesday night through Thursday morning. ENJOY!
