The weekend looks like a winner! With high pressure sticking around, we are left with warm days and comfortable nights. Get outside and enjoy!

Dry weather will likely hold through Monday. By later Tuesday and Wednesday, we will see a return to higher humidity and a chance of widely scattered showers.  A higher chance of rain enters the forecast Thursday and Friday as a cold front approaches the southern Appalachian region.

Our average high is 85°, low 64°.
