We are tracking high pressure in the StormTrack 5 Weather Center. The high will settle into the southern Appalachians overnight. Clouds will hang tough however, but some clearing and patchy frost is possible by Thursday morning.
Frost is more likely Thursday night into Friday morning. Frost sensitive plants may need to be covered or carried inside.
After some morning clouds, sunshine will return Thursday afternoon. Highs will stay below normal levels for one more day. The weather is looking good for the partial solar eclipse Thursday just before sunset (click here for details).
StormTrack 5 meteorologists are tracking a weak cold front that will zip through the region Friday afternoon into Saturday. It appears the atmosphere will be too dry for rainfall, but intervals of clouds and sunshine can be expected. The clouds will move east of the area late Saturday and we will see clearing and cool conditions Saturday night.
High pressure will again take over Sunday through Tuesday with tons of sun and warming temperatures thanks to a southwesterly flow that will develop.
Highs near 60 Thursday and mid to upper 60s Friday through Sunday. Highs in the lower to middle 70s Monday and Tuesday. Lows will be in the mid 30s to near 40 tonight through Sunday night and low to mid 40s Monday night and Tuesday night.
You can get the latest forecast and weather information on News 5, WCYB.com, and on the StormTrack 5 weather app.
Our normal high is 68°, low 41°.
