Forecast Last Updated at Thursday, September 29, 2016 at 6:33AM


Today's weather is dominated by an upper-level low centered in the Ohio Valley. Cool air aloft will produce an almost spring-like dynamic atmosphere producing scattered showers by afternoon with some thunder. Hail is possible primarily in the NC counties bordering Virginia. Showers diminish this evening, but clouds remain into Friday morning with a stray lingering shower possible early. After that, it's clear sailing Friday afternoon through the rest of the 7-day forecast.

Forecast Discussion

If you thought the clouds Wednesday afternoon were "spring-like", that's makes you an astute observer. An upper-level low is located in the Ohio Valley; that's basically a cool-pool of air aloft. In this setup, we have more lift in the atmosphere producing photo-worthy cloud tops. The result for our weather will be isolated morning showers, then scattered PM showers and thundershowers. Hail is possible mostly in Ashe and Alleghany Counties.

Tomorrow, the upper-level low slowly slides northwest into Indiana and eventually (Sunday) into Michigan before exiting the country. High pressure takes over the Eastern U. S. No front will reach us for the rest of the 7-day forecast. Friday has morning clouds with a stray, brief, light shower possible. Then clouds decrease setting us up for a glorious first weekend of October. Clear dry weather lasts at least through mid next week.

Temperatures are somewhat cooler today. Friday through the middle of next week features temperatures 1-4 degrees above seasonal norms, but cooler than what we have had in through this warm/dry September.

Tropical Storm Matthew formed yesterday on cue in the Eastern Caribbean. Matthew will strengthen into a potent hurricane as it moves west in the Caribbean. It will take a right turn and head toward Jamaica, Cuba, and the Bahamas this weekend. We'll wait and see what happens from there.
