Crisp air is heading for WNC tonight, and temperatures could fall into the low 50’s or even the upper 40’s in some locations. This is very rare for WNC considering that it is the end of the July. Dew points will also dip into the 40’s which will feel fall-like around the area! Below you can see the projected temperatures per the 3km Nam tomorrow morning around WNC.
Dew Points Plummet
The humidity around WNC will drop like a rock over the next 24 hours. Below you can see a simulation from the 3km Nam that shows the dew points dropping over the next day. Some areas will see a 30-40 degree temperature swing! Once again this is nearly unprecedented for late July. I don’t believe that this indicates an early Fall, but seeing these trough swing through like this is fall-like.
Get Out And Enjoy It!
Temperatures should only top out in the low 80’s each day for the rest of this week, so please get out and enjoy it! Start a winter garden or go for a hike! These temperatures appear to be locked in for the foreseeable future, but we are only in late July so another heatwave is certainly possible and is to be expected.
