Spring Heat is Here

Posted: Updated:

The Setup:  An upper-level heat ridge moved from the center of the country into the eastern half of the US on Wednesday.  This promoted more sunshine than clouds and quite a bit of warm air in many places. 

As of Wednesday night, a weak area of low pressure is spinning in eastern Texas and slowly moving our direction.  However, the high pressure ridge will play a role in weakening the system to our west.  So, even though there will be a few more clouds around on Thursday,  Friday and into the weekend, this high pressure ridge will keep a good amount of warm air around and some sunshine around for us.

Thursday:  Partly Cloudy.  Highs will climb into the middle-upper 80s in the Upstate & NE Georgia with upper 70s and low 80s in Western NC.  We will likely have a few, isolated storms, but the odds favor your town staying dry.

Friday:  Expect the same situation Friday as far as an isolated storm chance, but there may be a few more storms.  Highs will go down a few degrees.  Middle 80s will be common for Upstate towns with highs close to 80° for Western NC towns.  Expect a mix of sun and clouds on Friday.
