Many spots saw some much-needed rain late last night and this morning. However, the tap has been for the most part shut off since that point in time. However, the cold front is crossing the mountains as I type this and there is a line of showers and storms right ahead of that front. This evening will feature the chance for a few showers or storms before the front sweeps through and ends any rain chances.
The weekend will be fantastic with highs in the 70s and lows Sunday morning in the 40s. Fall foliage is looking nice up in the mountains, and the folks up at Grandfather Mountain report that foliage above 3700' is at its peak now. So, check out those leaves this weekend...the weather will be wonderful...highs in the 60s to lower 70s and lows in the 30s and 40s.
Model madness continues next week with most modeling now going to the cut-off low scenario. With that in mind, I have now kept Monday dry in the forecast and brought in lots of clouds with an occasional shower chance beginning Tuesday or Wednesday and lasting through at least Friday. We shall see....
