Forecast Last Updated at Thursday, June 17, 2021 at 5:10PM
Pleasant & Cool Evening; Warmer Ahead
A quick warmup developed this afternoon, returning us to near-average temperatures. However, for Friday, we return to seemingly toasty temperatures after this cool reprieve. Dry weather extends into Saturday (only a renegade afternoon thundershower south of Avery County). But a tropical low in the Gulf probably strengthens into a named Tropical Storm overnight or early Friday in the Gulf. It comes inland in Louisiana Friday night and reaches the Southern Appalachians Sunday night. Next week will begin with stormy weather.

The weather story through Saturday is a "big bubble, no trouble" story with progressively warmer temperatures. The center of high pressure moves into the Atlantic tomorrow. We limited mention of a renegade afternoon thundershowers Saturday to SW NC, south of Avery County. Enjoy the beautiful weather.
But trouble is brewing in the Gulf of Mexico. The signals for a tropical system have been strong for a while; it's all coming together now. Low pressure strengthens into a named tropical storm (Claudette) either tonight or early Friday. Claudette moves north reaching Louisiana Friday night. We expect the tropical storm's remnant low to move through Mississippi (Saturday) and the Southern Appalachians (Sunday night) before exiting off the Carolina Coast. The exact pace and path have some uncertainty, but uncertainty is decreasing with every hour.
So for here... Clouds increase Sunday. Showers and thundershowers develop in the afternoon, continue overnight, and end Monday morning. Isolated heavy rain is possible.
We are counting on the system to exit our region Monday afternoon. We'll have a short break before a front from the NW arrives Tuesday with scattered showers and thundershowers. That front should be well to our south by Wednesday, leaving us with slightly cooler and beautiful weather again.
