Beautiful Start to Holiday Week, Watching Thanksgiving Closely

We're tracking an expansive frontal system that could impact our Thanksgiving plans.

We’ve had a stretch of lovely weather for the past few days, but cooler and cloudier conditions have arrived for the second half of the weekend. A cold front will slowly move through the Carolinas overnight into Monday, which could bring a few showers to the High Country. Some flurries are even possible in higher elevations on the backside of the system as it passes us by. The Piedmont should largely stay unscathed, however, as a stray shower or two may linger into Monday morning. Sunny skies and cooler highs return to the WCCB Charlotte viewing area for our Monday and Tuesday, but the good times won’t last long. An expansive rainmaking system will sweep in from the west, bringing scattered showers that could be heavy at times.

The timing of this system will be key for our Thanksgiving plans. Right now, it looks like the rain will arrive late Wednesday night and clear out by Thursday morning. A lot can change over these next few days, though, and any slowdown with this system could drastically change our Thanksgiving forecast. Stay tuned!
