A Wind Advisory is in effect through Monday morning for the mountains of North Carolina, where wind gusts can pick up to 40 mph at times. Expect breezy conditions to last through Monday afternoon across the whole region. With wind and a saturated ground comes the threat for downed trees and/or power lines mainly in the mountains of North Carolina.
As the upper level low and Joaquin's moisture continue to shift eastward, the threat for rain gradually decreases in our area. On Sunday, the mountains stand a better chance at seeing light to moderate rainfall. Flooding, at this point, is still a possibility. Northeast Tennessee and southwest Virginia may see a few areas of light rain during the day as well, with chances lower.
After Monday, rain chances go down. Warmer, sunny and dry weather is forecast for much of next week.
By late week, a weak cold front moves down from the northwest. As of now, we stand a slight chance of a passing shower Friday and Saturday.
Temperature Outlook: Highs in the 60s to near 70 through Sunday. Highs in the 70s Monday through Friday. Lows in the 50s through the week - near 50 on Monday and Tuesday nights.
Our average high is 73°, low 48°.
