Southeast Heat Wave On Tap For Next Week

Mild temperatures have been the story over the past several days, but that switch will flip moving into next week, and an extended heat wave looks to be possible. As always we here in WNC will be 3-5 degrees cooler then locations at lower elevations in the Southeast, but upper 80’s or even low 90’s will be possible later next week. Some locations have the chance to reach 100 degrees in the southeast, and that would be quite early in the year to be reaching triple digits. Below you can see the most recent GFS temperature map for the US late week (5/24).

Scattered Showers Possible Daily

As we work towards this extended heat wave, scattered showers will be possible daily around WNC. Where and when these showers develop is still uncertain, but the likelihood for isolated development each afternoon looks likely. Sunday and into Monday the chance for rainfall will increase around WNC as a frontal passage makes its way through. Below you can see the most recent depiction of the 3km NAM on Sunday afternoon. You can see that some isolated showers develop in higher elevations, and then those move into the valleys below. These showers and storms won’t ruin your day, but rain could fall heavy at times if you get under a developing storm cell.


Recap

  • Scattered showers likely this weekend, and a better chance for storms exists Sunday night & Into Monday

  • A strong ridge will develop in the Atlantic next week sending warm moisture air into the southeast

  • This will bring a heatwave to all on the South where some locations could push over 100 degrees

  • Temperatures around WNC could push into the low 90’s late next week, so now is the time to make sure your A/C is prepared!

Low 40's And Even Upper 30's Possible Tuesday And Wednesday AM Around WNC

A front moved through last and noticeably cooler temperatures have set in for the beginning of the week. Temperatures could fall into the low 40’s or even the upper 30’s on isolated locations on Tuesday & Wednesday AM. This could damage some early crops, so please protect your garden if possible. Below you can see the Nam 3km temperatures for WNC on Wednesday AM. These could be a little low, I expect somewhere to see the upper 30’s.

A stubborn front continues to push towards WNC, and that will continue to bring the chance for scattered showers and storms over the next couple of days.

Some details still need to be hammered out on exactly how cold it will get, but below is a depiction of temperatures early Tuesday morning from the GFS around WNC.

GFS Temperatures Tuesday AM

Check back soon for another update regarding the rainfall potential for this weekend, and have a great Thursday!

Strong Storms Possible This Afternoon Around WNC

A relatively stout surface front will push through WNC this afternoon and into tomorrow, bringing with it the chance for thunderstorms, heavy rain, high winds and even some isolated hail. As you can see below on the most recent HRRR run, several rounds of storms look to develop around 2pm and those will persist through the evening hours. Many location will receive .5”+ of precipitation from heavy rainfall, with isolated higher totals. Some high wind gusts will also be possible with these storms, so please be mindful of that this afternoon.

Rain Continues Into Sunday

Scattered showers will persist through the morning Sunday, and some storm re-development could occur with adequate sunlight Sunday afternoon. Rainfall could be heavy at times, and some locations could pick up an inch of rainfall over the next 24-36 hours.

Some Models Hint At More Rainfall Next Week

The GFS model continue to insist that southerly flow from the gulf will enhance moisture over WNC through Tuesday. This would bring heavy rainfall to the Blue Ridge Escarpment area, and could create some flooding concerns. Below is the GFS precipitation totals through Wednesday. It struggles with the mesoscale activity that will occur today, but picks up on the upslope flow that looks possible Tuesday and Wednesday.

GFS Precipitation Totals Through Wednesday Courtesy of Weathermodels.com

Compare that with the European models precip total, and you can see how the GFS is more bullish on this upslope flow. I tend to side with the GFS on these instances, and believe that more precipitation will be possible both Tuesday and Wednesday compared to less.

A good bit of uncertainty remains regarding precipitation totals as we progress into next week, but check back soon for another update... and watch for storm development this afternoon on the WNC live cameras!

Thunderstorms Return To The Forecast For WNC Over The Next Several Days

The chance for thunderstorms will increase over the next few days around WNC as a cold pool aloft allows storm initialization to occur. Some locations around WNC may see very minimal t-storm activity, whereas other locations (like Brevard) could see them each day. For Thursday afternoon, the HRRR shows development along the NC/TN border where the cold pool aloft is the strongest, but development in typical locations along the NC/SC border could also see T-storms this afternoon. A lesser chance for storms exists around Asheville, but they cannot be ruled out nonetheless. Below you can see the most recent run of the HRRR at 1pm.

As you can see, those pop-up showers indeed develop in isolated locations this afternoon between 1-6pm. Where exactly they will setup is not certain, but the likelihood for storms appears more prevalent on the NC/TN border. Some embedded hail can also not be ruled out with these cells, so please be mindful of that this evening and into the afternoon tomorrow. Please report any severe weather you see to the NWS and to AshevilleWX’s Facebook page. Check back for another update soon and check the WNC Live Cameras to watch weather develop this afternoon around WNC.

Summer Feel Returns This Week To WNC With Highs In The 80's Tues, Wed, Thur

Many of you have been waiting for some consistent warm weather here in WNC, and it appears that we will get it this week! Models indicate that temperatures should rise into the low 80’s on several afternoons this week with high pressure dominating above. So break out those shorts and T-shirts because you will need them on Tuesday, Wednesday, & Thursday. Of course though this beautiful weather does not stick around too long, and clouds will build to end the week. A scattered shower or two cannot be ruled out on Friday, and a higher chance for rainfall exists moving into the latter part of next weekend.

Scattered Showers Possible Friday

If you need to get things done outside this week, Monday thru Thursday will be the best days to get the job done. Friday, the chance for showers will increase around the area as a weaker system move through the area. The European model also indicates another round of showers to be possible late next weekend, but other models take a more northern track with that precipitation. Enjoy this week though, it should be beautiful around WNC!

Gusty Winds Likely Around WNC This Afternoon.. Could Top 40MPH In Some Locations

A frontal passage today will bring scattered rain showers and very gusty winds to WNC today. Many of you have already experienced some rainfall this morning, and a few more scattered showers cannot be ruled out through the early afternoon hours… but the main story will be the winds that pick up this afternoon. Many models indicate that as this front pushes through, winds around Asheville could gust over 40mph! Wind gusts this high have the potential to down trees and cause power outages so please be mindful of this as we progress through the day. It would be wise to secure outdoor accessories such a patio furniture to ensure it is not damaged. Below you can see the most recent NAM 3km high wind gusts at 3pm this afternoon. As you can see, it registers a potential gust of 49mph at the Asheville Airport during the hours of 2pm-3pm. That would be a very strong gust of wind, that could potentially do damage.

Beautiful Weekend Ahead

After these winds finally reside early Saturday AM, a somewhat beautiful weekend will follow! A few scattered showers cannot be ruled out Saturday PM, but all and all I expect plenty of sunshine to make it way through some scattered clouds both Saturday and Sunday. Temperatures will also be in the low 70’s so it will feel nice! Have a great weekend!

Temps Near 80 Around WNC Today As Sunshine Continues, Rain Moves Back In Friday AM

A beautiful day is in store for WNC and this will continue as we move through the middle part of the week. In fact, temperatures today could push as high as the low 80’s for some in the area. The 3km Nam shows the Asheville Airport reaching 78 today, but I believe that sunshine will allow surface temps to reach around 80, or maybe a bit higher. Paired with excessive rainfall last week, these temps will kick off the growing season in a big way!

Warm Temps Continue Through Thursday

High temperatures are expected to stay in the 70’s through Thursday, and that will be a welcomed relief as I think we are nearing the end of cold snaps for the Spring. Clouds will begin to build again through Thursday evening, and then the cycle repeats itself with another rainy Friday expected.

Rain Moves Back In Early Friday

Scattered showers look to push back into WNC on Friday morning, but just how much falls is still in question. The GFS shows less than .25” of rain falling in most locations whereas the European model indicated that a widespread .5”+ could be possible. These totals though are nowhere near as high as what we experienced last Friday, so I think the flash flooding threat will be minimal. That being said, more of a trend towards the Euro and the possibility for high totals needs to be monitored. Have a great Tuesday, and enjoy the beautiful weather!

Flash Flooding Concerns Around WNC

There is an increased chance for flash flooding around WNC as ample amount of rainfall push into the area. These storms are rotating around an upper level low and as the low cuts itself off and stalls, so will the progression of the front. Therefore, multiple rounds of rainfall will be possible today around WNC, and flash flooding is very likely. Please use caution when traveling around WNC today.
