Forecast Last Updated at Thursday, October 21, 2021 at 6:30AM

A Lot of Bark But Not Much Bite

There will be a lot of clouds moving in and out of western NC over the next several days but there will not be much rain. Temperatures will be mild today, a little cooler tomorrow and Saturday and warming up again Sunday and Monday. There will be a few showers around overnight tonight and again Monday and Monday night. More showers are possible Tuesday morning but we don't expect any substantial rain. Cooler temperatures will return middle of next week and there will be better chances of rain by late in the week.

Forecast Discussion

A cold front will move through tonight and it could bring a few showers along with it. Skies clear tomorrow and temperatures are a bit cooler for Friday and Saturday. Temperatures will rebound a little Sunday.

A low moving through the Ohio Valley on Monday will drag a cold front through western NC Monday night. Ahead of the front, there will be occasional showers Monday and Monday night and perhaps into Tuesday morning. Temperatures will be mild ahead of the front and cool down a little behind it.

There is a bit of a break with clearing skies Tuesday afternoon and much of Wednesday. We don't expect much in the way of rain amounts for this week. Clouds begin to roll in Wednesday evening as a more potent low and cold front move toward us from the west. This system looks like it could bring a more substantial rain event.
