Summer Wins through Saturday

Fall keeps trying to make random appearances this summer, but over the next few days, at least, summer will win the battle. And we will feel it here in the Carolinas as high temperatures warm to 5-10 degrees above normal. Nothing extreme, and we have certainly seen hotter temperatures in summer’s past, but it will some of the warmest we’ve seen this summer. Showers and storms will be sparse over the next couple of days, but will increase in coverage as we head into the weekend thanks to a front dropping south out of Virginia. That front will bring noticeably cooler weather with it as well by Sunday.

Bald Guy Brew (Valle Crucis), Stick Boy and Stick Boy Kitchen (Boone), and Biltmore Coffee Traders (Asheville) partnered with RaysWeather.Com to reward your purchase of a RaysWeather.Com App. At any of these locations, show them your RaysWeather.Com Mobile App and get a FREE COFFEE!

Forecast Discussion

On the weather map, high pressure is centered over the Southeast and a slow-moving cool front stretches through the Plains. This setup will continue to pump very warm and humid air into western NC over the next few days with afternoon highs running 5-10 degrees above normal. Compared to the rest of the summer, it will feel pretty toasty, but by no means are we looking at any record-breaking heat.

Through Friday, the coverage of rain is expected to remain in the isolated category as the better coverage of storms remain just to our north in Virginia. However, a developing backdoor front will eventually drop south out of Virginia and into North Carolina bringing a better coverage of showers and storms Saturday and Sunday. Just ahead of the front, we still expect it to be very warm Saturday. But, as the front moves through, a wedge of cool air will really help to cool things off compared to what we will see over the next few days. Temperatures will likely drop back into the 70’s for much of the region on Sunday and Monday (a good 20+ degree change from Friday and Saturday).

The upcoming cool wedge doesn’t look quite as wet as previous ones, so even though we expect it to last into early next week, we are not anticipating much precipitation from Monday on. Temperatures early next week will depend, in part, on how long the cool wedge holds. There is the possibility that a tropical system could be moving through the western Atlantic Ocean next week and if that were to happen, it could actually help the wedge hold out another day or two. No tropical system, though, would likely mean we warm up quicker.
