Forecast Last Updated at Thursday, October 23, 2014 at 7:02AM

Dry & Cool

Today will once again be on the cool side. However, it won’t be nearly as chilly as yesterday. There will be even more sunshine today as well. A breeze will make it feel cooler this morning, but we expect the wind to gradually decrease, especially later today and into tonight. With calm winds and high pressure overhead, mountain valleys will quickly drop into the 30’s tonight with patchy frost possible (higher elevations won’t get quite as cool, though). The moderating and dry trend continues all the way through the weekend. In fact, this weekend is shaping up to be very nice by October’s standards…lots of sun and near to slightly above normal temperatures.

The RaysWeather.Com 2014-2015 Winter Fearless Forecast is now available, brought to you by Chuck Eyler Nationwide Agency. Snow-lovers will be excited.

Forecast Discussion

Generally quiet weather to continue…

High pressure is building in today and will keep the weather quiet through Friday. The only things of note are a bit of a breeze today, especially this morning, and patchy valley frost tonight. Higher elevations will be milder tonight, so no frost expected there.

On Saturday, a front drops down from the NW late in the day. Other than some scattered clouds late in the day and at night, you will hardly notice its presence. A storm system developing in the Plains over the weekend will quickly send that front back north as a warm front. What that means is milder air will quickly return to western NC on Sunday. Now, depending on how quickly the milder air moves in, temperatures might be even milder than what we are forecasting for Sunday. A mild, southerly wind will continue to keep temperatures above normal into early next week. Hard to get much nicer weather this late in October.

The next front swings through on Wednesday with showers and maybe a few thundershowers.
