Forecast Last Updated at Monday, July 23, 2018 at 6:22AM


The best word to describe the weather pattern for the next several days is rainy. Showers and thunderstorms will be concentrated in the afternoon today but tomorrow we will likely see rain much of the day. Any thunderstorm that develops today or tomorrow has the potential to produce heavy rain and some isolated severe weather such as strong winds or hail. There were several reports of large hail on Saturday and a few on Sunday from our friends in the foothills.

Wednesday looks like a soaker as well but the clouds and rain chances should decrease a little each day as we get to the weekend.

Forecast Discussion

An upper level low pressure will control our weather for the next few days. It will bring cloudy skies most of the time and rounds of showers and thunderstorms through Wednesday. Today, the storms will be concentrated in the afternoon but for Tuesday and Wednesday, there will be periods of rain and thunderstorms throughout the day and night. The atmosphere is unstable and any thunderstorm that develops has the potential to produce very heavy rain and some isolated severe weather such as hail and strong winds.

As we get to Thursday, a cold front will work its way through western NC and another cold front will move through Friday. These fronts will allow for a little bit of drying but there will still be afternoon showers and thundershowers around. These fronts don't get too far to our east and south before they stall and move back north as a warm front by Sunday bringing more widespread coverage of showers and thunderstorms. We should see an increase in temperatures this weekend; especially Sunday.
