Saturday turned out to be a pretty good day south of the border. However, North Carolina remained cloudy and had some areas of light rain, making temperatures much cooler. In the evening, temperatures drop rapidly as you head from the mid-40s in the mountains to overnight lows of he high 40s and low 50s in the north. Watch out for areas of mountain fog, mostly with clear skies outside the mountains.
A few spotty showers near the North Carolina-Tennessee border near dawn on Sunday and could last into the morning. We can’t completely rule out the possibility of a late evening shower, but all we see is light and shouldn’t ruin our plans to be outdoors. Combined, the high altitudes in the high 50s keep temperatures cool. It gets warmer west and south, with maximum temperatures approaching 70 degrees around Franklin, North Carolina and throughout the Upstate. South of Interstate 85, northeastern Georgia is even warmer with mid-70s highs. Upstate will be dry on Sunday, with skies from partly cloudy to mostly clear.
The next week looks calm. Highs in early October will gradually approach normal as the weather continues to be sunny and dry. Temperatures on Tuesday and Wednesday will peak in the mid-70s in the north and around 70 degrees in the mountains. Thursday’s highs then peaked from around 80 in Upstate to his mid-70s in North Carolina. This is almost normal.
