A drastic temperature swing took place across WNC today, where many locations rose from the upper 20’s into the upper 60’s. In many locations that amounted to over a 40 degree difference! This is Spring-like weather that we have been waiting for!! As you can see on the Olivette Weather Station and the below image, the temperature rose 41 degrees today.
As a southeastern ridge pumps in warm Atlantic air, these warm temperatures will continue through the near future. Rainfall will move back into the area on Friday morning as a moderate system brings scattered showers in. Most models indicate that less than 1” of rainfall will be possible, so there is no real threat regarding flash flooding.
Another System Moves In Sunday
Looking ahead towards the weekend around WNC, another system looks to move into the area sometime on Sunday bringing with it the chance for another round of scattered showers. Again, these appear to be somewhat light in nature. Total precipitation through the weekend in most areas will be less than 1” or rainfall, but I cannot rule out isolated pockets of higher totals. Saturday appears to be the best day of the weekend with highs in the mid 70’s, so get out and enjoy it! Check back soon for another update, and have a great day!
