Warmest Day Yet
This work week is really the first consistent warm stretch of spring weather we've had so far this season. Today is the warmest of the set. Tomorrow and Thursday are not far behind, but we fall short thanks to additional cloud cover. Showers return Thursday afternoon or evening and continue Friday. It has rained every Friday this month so it would be a shame to break the streak :-(.
Merlefest 2019 is this week, Thursday through Sunday. In 4 days, you can see: The Avett Brothers, Sam Bush, Wynonna Judd, Brandi Carlile, Steep Canyon Rangers, Amos Lee, Keb Mo, Dailey and Vincent, Scythian, Radney Foster, Kruger Brothers, Chatham County Line, The Waybacks, and nearly 100 other great artists. Weather... After showers and thundershowers Thursday night into Friday, we are hoping for dry weather for the rest of the festival. See our Hourly Forecast for details.

Uneventful and warm weather continues for a couple more days until a front moves through from the west Friday. High temperatures top out about 10-degrees above normal this afternoon. Wednesday has more clouds and holds back the warming potential by a few degrees, still very nice.
Showers develop Thursday afternoon or evening ahead of the front and pick up the pace overnight. Friday is cooler thanks to abundant showers (some thunder). Showers diminish Friday night.
We'll continue to promote a dry weekend though a secondary frontal passage could produce isolated showers late Sunday or Sunday night. So the key takeaway this forecast cycle is for a wet Friday, dry otherwise except sometime late Thursday. Pretty sweet!
