After several days of much-needed rain, we are seeing the return of sunshine to the Carolinas today. Along with that sun comes warmer high temperatures today with readings in the low to mid 70s.
The weather will stay pretty quiet through the next 5-7 days. A shot of cooler air arrives in time for Sunday with highs backing down into the upper 60s. In fact, it looks like every day next week will feature highs in the 60s. Monday and Tuesday will start of rather chilly with lows near 40 Monday morning and mid to upper 30s for Tuesday morning. We will continue to see lots of sun through most of the week.
The fall foliage season is running on a later than usual schedule this year, and there is still lots of great color to enjoy up in the North Carolina mountains. In fact, the color is just now reaching peak around the 3000' elevation. The weather up in the mountains will be great through the weekend and into much of next week with cool weather and lots of sunshine.
