Good morning! We're off to a much cooler start than yesterday - as temperatures this morning have dipped into the 50s for many spots. The humidity levels have dropped, and while we have clouds overhead now, sunshine will take over later this afternoon. The rain that fell yesterday is "outta here!" - so you can give your umbrella a break.
It was a record-setting day in Asheville on Tuesday, as they set the daily rainfall record with 3.28" in the gauge. We are still watching the Flood Warning for the French Broad River at Blantyre, as well, which lasts through Thursday evening. The NWS expects the river to crest around 17 feet (flood stage is 16 feet) this afternoon, and gradually fall to below flood stage by late Thursday morning.
As far as the forecast details go, it will be a quieter picture through the rest of the week. We'll keep the comfortable humidity with plenty of sunshine through Friday. The next two days will stay dry as well. By Saturday, the next front arrives - however, it won't have much moisture to work with. At this point, it looks like it will bring an isolated/widely scattered storm chance at best.
Behind the front, temperatures will cool off again... and that's great timing, because the Fall season officially begins on Saturday! Highs will range from the upper 60s to low/mid 70s Sunday and Monday with lots of sunshine. Morning temps early next week will be COOL - in the mid 40s in the Mountains and low 50s in the Upstate!
