Forecast Last Updated at Sunday, April 5, 2020 at 5:25PM

A Lot of Bark But Not Much Bite

Spotty showers are moving across the foothills but they should dissipate by sunset.

Our forecast looks like we will have a lot of rain over the next several days but that is not the case. There are small chances of brief showers each day through Thursday but there will not be much rain at any one time. The best chance for rain will be Tuesday morning and throughout the day Tuesday but we don't expect a washout. Temperatures will be a little above average through Wednesday. You'll notice a cool down Thursday and even more so on Friday. A more significant rain system could affect us by next weekend.

Forecast Discussion

A cold front stalled over NC today bringing clouds and a few showers and will bring slight chances of rain Monday afternoon as well. The front moves north as a warm front Tuesday putting western NC in an unstable air mass which will mean a greater coverage of showers and perhaps a rumble of thunder.

A cold front will move through early Thursday and you'll notice it. Ahead of the front on Wednesday, there will be some clouds and slight chances of rain. Temperatures will be mild until Thursday before the cold front goes through. After the cold front moves through, temperatures will cool down and it will become quite windy. The cool air settles in for Friday but we dry out temporarily. Saturday look nice for much of the daytime but it looks like a soaking rain could develop by Saturday evening.
