Gray, Damp, Cooler
Thursday, March 30 in Asheville (BRP)
Cooler air, clouds, and light rain returns Thursday as high pressure wedges down the eastern slopes. A steady soaking rain gets underway Thursday night and continues through most of Friday ahead of a cold front approaching from the west. The front passes Friday night and we dry out just in time for the weekend.

Gray, Damp, Cooler
An intense area of low pressure ejects from the Southern Plains today, the Upper MS Valley Thursday, and through the Ohio valley Friday. There will be a couple days worth of severe weather in the ArkLaTex region to the Middle MS Valley today and Thursday before the severe threat diminishes to a large extent Friday. That system will be responsible for a solid soaking rain here Thursday night and Friday ahead of a cold front passage Friday evening.
In the meantime Wednesday was nearly perfect. Ahead of the main rainmaker high pressure wedges down the eastern flanks of the Appalachians late tonight. Skies become cloudy overnight and some drizzle or spotty light rain is possible by Thursday morning. However, Thursday's emphasis on rain is late afternoon and into the nighttime hours. The gray and damp conditions tomorrow lend a hand towards keeping it much cooler.
Showers continue into Friday afternoon with a few rumbles of thunder possible just ahead of the frontal passage. Rain ends in the evening hours with decreasing clouds at night. There is nothing to complain about this weekend- sunny, dry, and quite mild.
Once again, the next system moves out of the Southern Plains Monday heading northeast. We'll moisten up quickly Monday morning with showers returning Monday afternoon and night.
