More Rain for the High Country 9-18-12

It’s been a rather soggy 24 hours as most locations in the region have seen a couple of inches of rainfall.  Our Sugar Mountain station is reporting over 2″ since midnight.  Look for heavy rain to continue through the afternoon as a tropical low pressure system continues to soak the High Country.  Most locations will see another inch or two of rainfall today.

Precpitation will taper off tonight as a strong cold front is going to sweep through the region and take the low pressure system along with it.  Look for gusty northwesterly winds overnight and into the morning hours before things begin to clear out by midday tomorrow.  It will be much cooler though as high temperatures at the higher elevations won’t get out of the 50’s.

Temperatures will increase a few degrees each day thorugh Friday and it’s going to be rather pleasant as high pressure lingers.  Another cold front will move through on Saturday.
