Forecast Last Updated at Wednesday, October 26, 2016 at 6:07PM

No Winter in Sight

Valleys tonight will be a deal milder than last night thanks to southwesterly flow. A front moves through from the west Thursday with clouds and an afternoon shower. Fire dangers continue to increase across the Western North Carolina Desert--there's no rain in the forecast between Friday and later next week. Temperatures gradually rise after today, to just below record levels this weekend.

Forecast Discussion

I remember moving to Boone in 1991 and marveling at 3"-4" of snow on Halloween that year. We had a big snow, bitter cold, and lots of wind associated with Hurricane Sandy in 2012 (Oct 29-30). Both years, we walked barefoot, uphill in all directions for trick-or-treating. :-) This year's warmth is a stark contrast.

Dry air and calm wind produced strong inversion Tuesday night--mountaintop temperatures were 20+ degrees warmer than frosty valleys. Tonight low temperatures in the valleys will be comparatively milder with southwesterly winds. Skies begin clear then increase late tonight.

A front in the Plains is making fast progress westward and will reach us Thursday evening. Thursday has mostly cloudy skies with a shower or two in the afternoon.

After the front, high pressure overtakes the region for the rest of the week, settling over the Southeast. Temperatures will be unseasonably warm Saturday and Sunday. The only item of weather-note will be breezy conditions Sunday, especially at higher elevations.

A dry front moves through Sunday night with little practical effect Monday; however, Tuesday will be less warm. Even warmer weather is expected for the middle of next week.
