More Clouds; Stray Shower

There will be extra cloudiness on Wednesday but with only a stray afternoon shower. That risk lingers for Thursday afternoon, then we turn up the valley heat heading into late week and the all-important Memorial Day weekend. A pop-up late-day thundershower will be a rare occurrence across the western North Carolina landscape Friday through Monday.

Discussion

More Clouds; Stray Shower

A cold front that came through here on Monday will be returning northward as a warm front Wednesday into Thursday. It will be responsible for some extra clouds and a developing southeasterly low-level wind flow. There will be a stray shower for Wednesday afternoon and night, and maybe an afternoon thundershower on Thursday.

Thereafter, we will be under the influence of an expanding subtropical ridge of high pressure at the surface and aloft. That means early-season heat will also be expanding for late week and through the holiday weekend. Expect minimal pop-up PM thundershower chances along with temperatures that will be running a strong 10-degrees warmer than normal.
