Forecast Discussion

Hot high pressure will control our weather through Monday morning. The atmosphere is just unstable enough that a few afternoon showers and thundershowers could pop up but most areas will be dry for this evening and tomorrow. Temperatures will be well above average; especially the overnight lows.

A cold front from the northwest will move close to western NC by Monday morning and pass through Tuesday morning. The front will bring welcome relief from the heat and humidity but the price will be a lot of clouds and showers and thunderstorms Monday afternoon and much of the day Tuesday. But the reward for this hot muggy and occasionally rainy weather is cool dry and sunny weather for Wednesday through the end of the week. Cool high pressure will take control Tuesday evening with cool and very pleasant conditions once the rain moves out Tuesday. It is rare to get three consecutive days in July with such nice weather but we'll take it.
