Rainy and WARM Saturday, colder for Christmas


Starting the holiday weekend warm and rainy before colder air returns for Christmas Day!

This evening, clouds hang tough with steady temperature in the 50s expected along with a small risk of light rain.

Saturday starts mostly dry, but rain chances increase from late morning through late afternoon. Pockets of locally heavy rain are possible as well. Before rain begins in your area, temperature will soar into the 60s to near 70 degrees in spots!

All rain should move out by 8 PM Saturday, leaving a partially clearing sky. Variably cloudy conditions highlight Christmas Eve with highs in the 50s.

Christmas Day brings colder air to the area as the sky becomes mostly sunny, but highs will struggle only into the 40s.

There is a small chance of TN/NC border snow showers early Christmas Day, but at this point it should not amount to much.

Through the week, the weather turns colder again…especially by late week as another system could bring the chance of wintry precip to the area. It’s something we’ll watch closely in the coming days!
