StormTrack 5 meteorologists are tracking high pressure settling into the southern Appalachians that will deliver a great end to the week and start of the weekend. Partly to mostly sunny skies will be in order for Friday and Saturday. We will enjoy lower humidity levels as well!
A warm front will move northward through the region on Saturday bringing warmer temperatures. By Sunday we will be watching a cold front dropping in from the northwest. The showers and thunderstorms will return as the front gets closer during the afternoon or evening on Sunday. We expect to see scattered showers and storms in the region Sunday night and Monday.
The cold front will sweep through the region Monday bringing in another fall preview! High pressure will settle into the area Tuesday and Wednesday with partly to mostly sunny skies, very low humidity levels, and much cooler temperatures.
Highs will be around 85 to 90 degrees Friday through Sunday. We expect upper 70s to lower 80s Monday through Wednesday. Lows will be near 60 tonight and Friday night with mid 60s Saturday night and Sunday night. We will cool back into the 50s Monday night through Wednesday night.
Cooler temperatures may bring us near records a couple of nights. The record low Tuesday is 55° and Wednesday is 56°.
Our normal high is 85°, low 64°.
