More Great Outdoors Weather

Dry, warm weather finishes out the weekend and begins October. Next week will be much the same with abundant sunshine and temperatures running 5 to 10 degrees warmer than where they should be. There’s not a lot to talk about until a shower or two enters the picture by Friday afternoon or Friday night. Next weekend should prove to be noticeably cooler than this weekend.

Forecast Discussion

October is typically the driest month of the year for most of western North Carolina. We start the month out this way, with dry warm weather extending through Thursday. Temperatures will continue to run several degrees warmer than normal during this period.

A cold front will be approaching by Friday, pushing across the state by Friday night or Saturday morning. Moisture inflow from the Gulf of Mexico is limited with this system. However, the strength of the front dictates a few showers late Friday into Friday night as it crosses the area. We’re rooting for a bit more rainfall, as it’s going to be pretty dry by the time it gets here.

Behind the front, the first of the fall-like air masses is scheduled to arrive next weekend. Temperatures will get knocked-down near or below normal for Saturday and especially by next Sunday.
