Rumble in the Mountains

Western NC felt a significant earthquake at 8:07 AM. The center of the event was almost 2 miles SE of Sparta NC. Here's the USGS live report about the event. This earthquake was preceded by a smaller earthquake earlier this morning near the same location.

Sunshine prevailed again today, and we held a dry forecast, as most of the isolated pop-up activity remained just to our east. We can’t keep our “finger in the dike” any longer than that, however, as we’re back to widely-separated afternoon showers and thundershowers by Monday, with coverage increasing further from there. After some refreshingly drier air this weekend, humidity levels will start to creep back up from here.

Forecast Discussion

We starting out Sunday quite refreshing, with lots of 50s this morning and a 52 in Newland. Nice. Skies were mostly sunny today with nice weather to be outside.

This little island of drier air that we’re on erodes quickly. Humidity levels start to increase by early in the week, and we’ll be back to rather humid conditions for most of next week.

No frontal passages are expected, although a frontal zone will stretch from the Ohio Valley eastward through the Mid-Atlantic states from midweek onward. Meanwhile, the Bermuda High will keep surface moisture pumping in from the Gulf of Mexico.

Normal daytime heating will be plenty enough to promote the instability needed for scattered to numerous showers and thunderstorms each day from midweek onward. They will be focused during the PM-hours, but not necessarily limited to them.
