Forecast Last Updated at Tuesday, April 25, 2017 at 4:10PM

Decreasing Clouds

Temperatures got a nice boost today after Sunday and Monday highs that were 20-degrees below normal as the clouds began to clear. We'll see continued clearing overnight with some areas of fog developing. The temperature pendulum is about to swing in the other direction, as we will be basking in warmth for the last part of the week and next weekend. The weather will also dry out, aside for those highly-localized afternoon and evening thundershowers.

The Golf-O-Meter is now the Raccoon-O-Meter in anticipation of MerleFest in Wilkesboro, NC, Thursday through Sunday! Overall the weather looks great--warmer than usual with only isolated PM showers or thundershowers each day. See our Hour by Hour MerleFest Forecast for details.

Forecast Discussion

The culprit for our spell of very soggy and cool weather is an upper level low that is spinning over the coastal Carolinas. This wet-weather maker finally takes a hike into the Northeast tonight.

Clouds will continue to decrease through the evening hours and overnight. Expect some decent radiational cooling tonight aiding the development of some areas of patchy fog through the early morning hours.

Wednesday looks like a gorgeous day with mostly sunny skies and highs topping-out near the 80-degree mark.

Generally dry weather will prevail Thursday into Sunday. A dying cold front entering the western part of the state could spark a late-day or evening shower on Thursday. High pressure at the surface and aloft will dominate our weather Friday through Sunday providing June-like warmth and tiny chances for a pop-up afternoon shower or thundershower through the period. Make those outdoor plans now (and that should include MerleFest).

Improving shower and thundershower chances will return for Sunday night and Monday ahead of the next cold front.
