Asheville Weather & Climate Discussion

15 posts in this topic

Take note of today (3/11/11) because it will probably be the last day when the Asheville Regional Airport records above normal precipitation for the current year. After today, the daily averages will start adding up again, putting us back below normal for the year. The small precipitation event arriving Sunday night into Monday doesn't look like anything significant.

Multiple record "max low" temperatures were set in July (and August) as of 8/5/11. They were July 10th (71), July 11th (70), July 12th (72), July 25th (70), July 30th (72), July 31st (71), August 4th (73) and today August 5th (71). More record "max lows" will likely be set this weekend with a very moist air mass in place, along with a stationary front stalled out over the area. Updates will follow.

Just a note...tomorrow, August 21st, is a record setting day for Asheville. Back in 1983 the temperature reached 100 degrees, an all time high for Asheville. Thankfully tomorrow we will be nowhere near 100.

Yesterday, September 16, 2011, the Asheville Airport's high temperature was only 57 degrees, setting a new record for the lowest high temperature. The previous record was 62, so in essence, we shattered it!

After a very warm winter for the Asheville area, the last couple months have been fairly average. The Memorial Day weekend looks to bring temperatures into the upper 80's for most of the area, ushering in the first real "hot" spell.

This morning's low will most likely drop into the upper 40's for most of Asheville. This is certainly uncommon for June 3rd, but not anywhere near the record low of 41 set back in 1966.

Possible record highs this weekend in Asheville...Friday's record is 98 (which we probably wont be close to breaking), however, Saturday's record is 95, which could possibly be tied or broken.

Looks like the record of 95 will be tied or broken tomorrow in Asheville, barring any thunderstorm that develops early.

The next 5 days in Asheville should push us up way above average for monthly rainfall, with between 3"-5" of rain expected by the weeks end. Also, temperatures will cool down drastically, remaining mostly in the 70's for high temperatures after this afternoon.

With a good part of the country in a moderate drought, Asheville may get close to being even for yearly precipitation. A cluster of storms moving through the Asheville area tonight should bring at least 1" of rain to the airport, bringing the yearly precipitation within one inch of normal, give or take 1/4"
