We've gotten another 'taste of fall' for one of our final mornings of summer - it's been cool and crisp out there, with many spots dipping into the 50s. We do have some patchy fog in WNC and areas of low cloud cover across the entire area, but that will lift through the mid-morning. So if you're seeing a gloomy picture out your window now, don't worry - more sunshine is coming for the afternoon.
Mostly sunny skies will be the norm across the Upstate and NE GA, while Western North Carolina towns will see partly cloudy sky cover overhead. We'll stay dry, so leave the umbrellas at home. Humidity levels are low - as dewpoints today will stay in the mid 50s. Highs will be slightly below-normal but very close to seasonal levels, reaching the mid to upper 70s area-wide.
Tomorrow will be a bit warmer, as highs rise into the upper 70s and low/mid 80s. We'll stay bright and dry across the Upstate, while WNC towns (particularly areas near the TN border) could see an isolated late-day shower or storm. Humidity will nudge up a bit, but will still be comfortable on Friday and Saturday.
Saturday is the first day of fall, and it will be the warmest day of the week. Highs will be near 80 degrees in the Mountains, while Upstate spots will top out in the mid 80s. A cold front will move into the area late in the day, however, this front will not have much moisture to work with. Because of that, we'll only be watching for an isolated PM shower or storm in the Upstate, with a slightly better chance (but still only a few WIDELY scattered showers/storms) in the Mountains.
The front may not bring much rain, but it will bring some very fall-like air for the end of the weekend and early next week. Highs will dip into the 60s and 70s with very dry air in place. Morning lows will be CHILLY - dipping into the low/mid 50s in the Upstate and mid 40s in the Mountains. Brrrr!
