Sunny, but Cool Afternoon

We started this morning in the upper 20’s to low 30’s across the Foothills. There will be plenty of sun this afternoon, but temperatures will still remain well below normal for mid-April. Another frosty night is in store tonight with lows once again dropping down near freezing. Tomorrow afternoon will be a repeat of today…just a few degrees milder. Friday will have more clouds around at times, but for now we expect it to stay dry. Temperatures finally rebound back to normal over the Easter weekend with plenty of sun.

Forecast Discussion

Yesterday’s cold front is now located off the East Coast with high pressure building in behind it. Behind the front an unseasonably cold airmass has moved in which led to temperatures dropping into the upper 20’s to low-30’s this morning across the NC Foothills. The cold spot was at the Morganton-Lenoir Airport where the temp fell to 26. For perspective, the normal low for this time of year is the mid-40’s. By this afternoon, temperatures will get up into the 50’s, but that is still about 15 degrees or so below normal. Clear skies and a light wind will allow for another cold night tonight with temperatures falling down near the freezing mark. Make sure to continue to protect any sensitive outdoor plants.

High pressure will remain wedged down the Appalachians on Thursday keeping temperatures below normal. Late Friday, a weak front is forecast to move across WNC. Moisture looks limited so at this time we believe it will pass through without any precip. However, there will be more clouds around as the front moves through. High pressure builds back in for the Easter weekend with dry, seasonable weather expected.

The forecast for early next week is more uncertain. A weaker, upper level system is forecast to move through the Southeast, possibly sending another front across the area on Monday or Tuesday. The uncertainty lies in how much moisture the front will have to work with and when it will move through. For now, we have a chance of showers in the forecast for Monday and Tuesday, but it’s possible one of those days will end up drier than the other, depending on when the front moves through.
