Forecast Last Updated at Monday, August 29, 2016 at 12:19PM

A Break in Sight

High pressure centered to our north nudged drier air across the Southern Appalachians yesterday. As a result, we'll enjoy two warm/humid/mostly dry days. A renegade afternoon thundershower is not impossible but chances are too small to mention in the "forecast box". A front arrives Thursday ushering in cooler air--a welcome break from warm/humid conditions. As the front approaches and passes through, isolated afternoon thunder is expected Wednesday afternoon and widely scattered coverage comes Thursday. Wow! weather comes next. Tropical systems are trolling the Southeast Coast, see the details in our Forecast Discussion Section.

Forecast Discussion

The forecast has become pretty simple--a front in the middle of the 7 days, warm/humid before, and cooler/pleasant after.

High pressure centered to our north brought slightly drier/more stable air across our region. We'll have two generally dry days (although a lone, renegade thundershower is possible this afternoon near the corner of TN/NC/VA near Pond Mtn).

The front in the middle (Thursday), increases afternoon thunder coverage to isolated Wednesday and widely scattered Thursday. But overall, we'll see little rain with this front.

Friday may have a lingering, spotty, light shower. Then the weekend looks glorious. The big news... cooler temperatures, even below seasonal averages. We have not said that for a long, long time.

Tropics... Gaston became a major hurricane in the Atlantic but will not affect the United States. Two tropical depressions are developing that will affect the Southeast U. S. Coast. The first tropical depression is developing off the Carolina Coast and will brush Cape Hatteras Tuesday night before heading NE out to sea. The second, African-based depression we have been watching for over a week is NW of Cuba. After a couple days cruising the Gulf, it is expected to move across North Florida Thursday night. It then moves into the Atlantic remaining off the coast as it heads NE. These two depressions are in a race to see who gets the next names on the list...Hermine and Ian. But the Atlantic will spawn several storms in the next couple weeks. The Tropical paragraph will be a permanent feature here for a while.
