If you are a fan of the outdoors, this would be an excellent weekend to get out and about. This view comes courtesy of the Great Smoky Mountains National Park overlooking the Newfound Gap area. Another picture perfect blue sky day is upon us with temperatures quite comfortable as well.
Looking at forecasted highs by the NWS today, most locations should see the mid 60's. I pushed for high's a little warmer but it will depend on how quick the cold front from our north works in. Regardless, it will be another gorgeous one through the day and even through the weekend.
A system is expected to approach from the west this evening and into Friday but with little moisture to support rainfall, a few clouds are likely for the day. Temperatures will drop about 10 degrees with the passing of a cold front, but this still remains right on par to slightly above average for this time of the year. Mid-March looks to be very Spring-like with above average temperatures expected over the next 7 to 10 days. For reference, Spring officially begins on March 20th.
Go out and enjoy this beautiful weather. With a bit of cooler (still on average) air this weekend, it may be a nice time to head up to the Smokies, walk the dog, or even break out the golf clubs.
