Forecast Last Updated at Wednesday, August 16, 2017 at 6:06PM


The coming seven days will be among the warmest this summer. A front passing through Saturday morning won't make a dent in the warmth. Precipitation... the front will raise afternoon and evening thundershower coverage Thursday and Friday. The weekend looks warm and generally dry. Eclipse day will have some afternoon clouds with an isolated PM thundershower possible.

Forecast Discussion

A front approaches from the west and moves through Saturday morning. The front won't have any effect on temperatures; however, it will raise the stakes for scattered or widely scattered afternoon/evening showers and thunderstorms Thursday and Friday.

With the front to our south this weekend, expect more sun and a mostly dry weekend (only the slightest chance of an afternoon thundershower Sunday).

Everyone is asking about Monday. I wish we could be more specific but we can't from five days out. Expect some afternoon cloudiness but not completely overcast skies. The period of the eclipse in NW NC is between 1 and 4 PM peaking around 2:35 PM. A stray shower or thundershower cannot be ruled out.

The next front arrives next Wednesday or Thursday. It's approach adds clouds and afternoon thundershowers to Tuesday.
