Soggy Today and Monday; Sunshine Returns Tuesday

Published: 7.15.17 9:58am

Good Morning Folks! We picked up another decent round of rainfall over the 24 hours with a region wide average of a quarter inch, although not all locations picked up rain. Of course, there were higher amounts and they are found along the Great Balsams and surrounding towns east, such as Brevard and Hendersonville where up to an inch or more fell across the landscape. Today will be similar, in that we expect a general swath of rain to move through the region, with higher amounts isolated throughout the region, all due to a cold front swinging across the area. Sunday brings us isolated shower chances, with scattered showers possibly developing along the escarpment, drifting to our neighbors further southeast. Monday provides us with another round of storms as a disturbance moves through the region and although this will put a damper on outdoor plans, we welcome it as it will also setup Tuesday through Thursday with sunny skies. Temps all the while will be slightly below to slightly above normal for this time of year, so nothing that stands out (low – upper 80’s today through Thursday). All in all, typical mid July weather with passing fronts, pop up showers and a stretch of dry weather. 

A front will move across the region this afternoon, bringing with it scattered showers and thunderstorms and although this will not be a prolonged event, it should be enough to drop anywhere from a quarter of an inch up to inch before sunset. Isolated showers linger through the evening hours but eventually fizzle out as the front continues its march southeast, however clouds will linger in its wake. Temps today will rise to the low 70’s – mid 80’s depending upon elevation and dip into the mid – upper 60’s tonight. 

Sunday provides us with a mixed bag of clouds and sun before midday and perhaps mostly sunny skies for the afternoon hours, however the chance remains that isolated showers will develop. For those who live closer to the TN line, we think it should be a dry afternoon with more sun than clouds overhead and for those who live along the SC state line, it seems shower chances go up as instability lingers from the nearby front. Temps will push back into the low 70’s – mid 80’s tomorrow and dip into the low – upper 60’s Sunday night, with partly cloudy skies and valley fog setting up before midnight. 

Monday features a second frontal passage and one that may be stronger than today, but regardless we are expecting another round of afternoon showers and thunderstorms. Temps will hold to the low 70’s – mid 80’s once again, but with so much moisture in the air it will feel like the low 90’s across the valleys. 

Tuesday through Thursday should bring back a stretch of sunshine to the region and although this is welcomed by many, temps will soar to the mid 70’s – upper 80’s by Thursday afternoon; overnight lows settle into the mid – upper 60’s. 

Overall, soggy today, partly dry tomorrow, soggy again Monday and then sunshine Tuesday through Thursday. ENJOY!
