Sunny Days Coming Back + Cold Weekend - FOX Carolina 21

Sunny Days Coming Back + Cold Weekend

Posted: Updated:

Thursday:  We'll wake up and get out the door to face chilly temperatures, but at least there won't be any spotty rain, drizzle or clouds around.  Instead, here comes a blue sky with plenty of sun tomorrow.  Temperatures will start in the 30s and make it all the way into the middle-upper 50s by afternoon in Upstate & NE Georgia towns.  Western NC towns will reach the low 50s in many places with some middle 50s in the valleys, especially south and east of Asheville and Hendersonville.

Friday:  Friday will feature more sunshine and more blue sky as the next cold front approaches from the northwest.  Temperatures across Upstate towns will reach the upper 50s to near 60° in the afternoon with Western NC highs reaching the low 50s with some breezy winds in the mountains.

Saturday:  Windy and cooler conditions will be the focus on Saturday as a strong, cold front makes its entrance.  Because of the wind and Canadian air mass settling across our region, temperatures won't feel warm at all.  By afternoon, Upstate towns will range between 38° and 44° with Western NC towns only making it into the 30s with some low 40s.

Also, a brief snow flurry isn't out of the question Saturday night.  Although, even with the air being plenty cold enough for snow, the upper level jet stream structure won't be aligned correctly for a system.  Without any storm system around Saturday, that will drastically limit the precipitation possibilitiesThis will primarily just be a windy, dry and cold air mass settling into place.

SundayLows in the morning will be the toughest part of SundayExpect teens early in the morning for Western NC towns and low 20s with some teens possible in Upstate/NE Georgia towns.

By the afternoon, expect chilly conditions, but most of the wind should be dying down at that point.
