Clouds & Light Rain Return

Friday, April 18 in Asheville (BRP)

We had a pretty good thing going the last few days with ample sunshine. Warmer would have been nice, but no complaining when looking at the next couple of days. It is Good Friday so we'll use that as a launch pad for a more optimistic forecast through Saturday. Optimistic being a lot of clouds, cool, and some rain as opposed to all of the above plus lots of rain. That said, light rain moves in this afternoon continuing on and off through most of Saturday, but not a wash out. Fortunately the weather breaks for Easter Sunday with a warm and sunny afternoon headed our way.

Clouds & Light Rain Return

An upper-level low moves east through the Southeast today and into the Western Atlantic Sunday. Associated with the upper-level low is a surface low moving east along the Gulf Coast. The surface low will be just east of Jacksonville FL by late Saturday. It's a slow-mover with a large area of clouds. The big question is how far north the rain goes. We are on the optimistic side with only light rain making it into the southwestern mountains and foothills this afternoon through most of Saturday. This will help to keep temperatures well below normal through the first half of the Easter weekend. Worst case, rainfall ends up being a bit heavier, but temperatures will not be impacted greatly if that is the situation.

That system will be far enough to our southeast Easter Sunday with high pressure building in from the north over us, giving us more sun and a rebound in temperatures. Monday will be even warmer, but clouds increase in the afternoon and overnight.

The next front from the west moves through Tuesday with showers (maybe a thundershower). Temperatures remain pleasant ahead of the front, but it will become much cooler Tuesday night. After Tuesday the rest of the work week, or Spring Break if you are lucky, will be dry.
