Good afternoon! After a wet and dreary week prior, we start this one off sunny and mild. In fact, today will be the coolest day of the 5-day span. Friday highs will be in the upper 60s and low 70s for most. Looking across the Smokies from the Newfound Gap camera, sunny skies dominate, with not even a cloud in the sky.
With high pressure dominating the greater portion of the Eastern US, sunny skies and warming temperatures will be the trend this week. As such, our best chance of rainfall doesn't arrive again until the weekend and early next week. Forewarning though, the long term outlook appears to be a wet one. Overall, above average rainfall is anticipated for the month along with near to above average temperatures.
That will do it for today....enjoy the warming temperatures and sunny skies! We'll catch you back here tomorrow.
