The weather is behaving for this holiday weekend! High pressure is the dominating force for weather in the Southern Appalachians. Partly sunny skies and a warming trend are expected. Daytime highs will be below normal temperatures for this time of year. There is a slight chance of a few sprinkles tonight and tomorrow morning, but other than that conditions look favorable for outdoor activities!
Here in the StormTrack 5 weather center we are keeping an eye on the next weather maker. A cold front is moving in from the West, and will pass our region Monday. A 30% chance of rain and thunderstorms is in place for Monday, and a 20% chance for Tuesday.
Temperatures will be on the rise though starting early week with the passing of this front. Highs Monday return to the 80s, and stay there for the extended forecast. High pressure will return to the area Wednesday which means dry skies will return through Friday.
Highs in the low to mid 70s Sunday, and upper 70s to low 80s Monday. Highs will climb into the low to mid 80s Tuesday through Thursday. Lows could drop into the low to mid 40s tonight. Near 50 Sunday night. We should be back into the mid to upper 50s Monday night through Thursday night.
Our normal high is 78, low 54.
