Good Morning Folks! Friday has finally arrived and today we expect a bit more cloud cover overhead as easterly flow ramps up across the Southeast, due to a high pressure system spinning easterly winds into the Carolinas from the Northeast region. This will provide us with partly sunny skies as the damming configuration is rather weak and this will allow work to keep shower activity to a minimum with light intensities and/or drizzle. Temps will be held to the upper 60’s – mid 70’s depending upon elevation and it will feel a bit muggy outside, but the cooler temps will help keep the comfort levels high. Isolated light showers are possible after midday and the bulk of the action will be found directly along or near the SC state line, where the escarpment resides (area in which the mountains drop off to the foothills). This is due to moisture interacting with the sudden rise in terrain, helping to squeeze out moisture and keeping the majority of the rainfall to the southern portion of Macon, Jackson, Haywood and most all of Transylvania counties. Overnight lows will dip into the mid 50’s – low 60’s depending upon elevation and once the sun sets, most of the shower activity will cease as we lose daytime heating. With this in mind the local high school football games should be dry and a sweatshirt might be needed as cool temps hang around all day and night.
Saturday and Sunday are looking fantastic and for those heading... click here for more
