The holiday weekend is upon us, and we’ve got some great weather to get things started. It won’t exactly feel like the unofficial start to summer, as cooler air invading the western Carolinas tonight will result in low temperatures tonight flirting with records:
RECORD LOWS FOR SATURDAY MORNING
Hickory: 45 (2005)
North Wilkesboro: 40 (1967)
Saturday will be sunny through the morning with very nice temperatures and humidity levels. A developing warm front to the west of the region will result in some more clouds spilling into our neck of the woods as early as Saturday afternoon, lasting into Memorial Day. At the present time, we’re not expecting any rainfall of note, at least until Monday. By Monday afternoon, we can’t rule out a passing/stray shower.
As the air mass warms and becomes more moist and unstable, there will be small daily chances of mostly PM showers and thunderstorms, beginning on Tuesday, and mainly over mountain areas to our west. An early season Bermuda high will take shape and support this new weather pattern.
