6:10 am
6:11 am
>> now, in high definition, this is your news 13 skywatch forecast. to you all. moment. but we are already starting to see the cloud cover rolling on in, and this is some layered clouds. we are seeing overcast conditions for the majority of our region and we are already starting to see some showers try to make their way into the mountains. and more moisture is going to be on the way as we make or way through the rest of the day but i think the rain activity is going to be spotty at best. another big topic of conversation? unseasonable warmth. right now, our temperatures are into the low 40s, where they should be down below the freezing point for this time of year. 50 degrees right now in hendersonville, absolutely incredible warmth. tually, from 4 hours ago, even upwards of 13, 15, maybe even 20 degrees where we were. so, it will be a very warm day overall. but, we may pay the price for some of the cloud cover and some of the spotty showers. the winds are going to remain calm. now, as we head further south
6:12 am
things will change a little bit. i think there might be just a little more accumulation on top of some of the showers that are going to be seen and the winds are coming about 5-10 miles per hour. so, maybe just a bit breezy as we head further south. but, overall, not a lot to be speaking about. we are only talking about less than a tenth of an inch of rain over the course of the next 24 hours. but then as we make our way into tomorrow afternoon, we are going to jump the storm chances up ever so slightly and we could get anywhere from about 2/tenths to a quarter, possibly upwards of an inch in those northern mountains but we are going to see a little more accumulation as we make our way into the upcoming work week. that's when things are really going to start bombing out. by monday, we are back down to 40% but by tuesday, that's when we start to see even upwards of an inch, 1 1/2" and maybe 2" in a 24 hour period, and it's only going to continue as we head into the middle of the weekend. at that point, our temperatures are also going to be sliding back and maybe even into introducing a wintry mix by thursday. don't think it will be the case for the weekend. so, i would say go outside and enjoy it.
6:13 am
rain jacket throughout the course of the day on saturday and keep an eye to the sky. especially at the heavier elevations. but, monday thru wednesday, that's the storm track we are certainly going to be monitoring. many locations going to be hovering around that inch mark. that's what you see in some of that green area as we mange our way towards the blue, even upwards of 2" and then in the lighter blue, as we head further west, in western north carolina, and down into the upstate, we can get accumulations of 9" and then as we make our way into the wintry mix, we could have some bigger impact. that's certainly something we will monitor. later this afternoon, no complaints for temperatures but look at this icon, slim chance of rain showers. again, they are going to be spotty and we do want to keep an eye to the sky. a better chance for rain for tomorrow, but even warmer temperatures, and then we will dive our afternoon highs back down into the 50s and even 40s at some point. and our rain chances are really going to be skyrocketing with the heaviest coming on tuesday and wednesday. >>

app. your news 13 skywatch forecast disd welcome back, we have cloud cover rolling in in the overnight hours and i think it will be mainly cloudy, even overcast conditions throughout the course of the day. take a look at the extreme weern county, already starting to see some moisture. trying to make its way in towards the mountains and the showers are going to be spotty at best. i don't think a whole lot in terms of impact and really minimal in terms of accumulation, but there is certainly more on the way for the second half of the weekend, and especially as we make or way into the upcoming work week. we will get to that in a moment. warmer temperatures is a massive topic of conversation for the weekend. 43 degrees right now in asheville, 50 degrees in hendersonville. and, yes, from 24 hours ago, it
6:42 am
13 degrees warmer than what we were on friday morning. maybe even 30 degrees warmer in some spots as we make or way further west towards knoxville, but we will see the 60s area-wide later on this afternoon. however, again we do pay the price with a few chances of spotty showers. the breeze is going to be limited and i do think it's mostly going to be cloud cover that dominates the mountains down in the upstate, however, i do think maybe a little more in terms of accumulation. still less than a quarter of an inch overall. but, the breeze may be increasing a little bit. maybe closer to sustained 10 miles per hour winds. but, overall, not a whole lot in terms of an issue today. so, let's put you in the hour-by-hour. you see the cloud cover overhead? rolling into lunchtime. spotty at best. take a look at what happens. there will be a middle more of a broadband for those in the upstate by about mid afternoon. but, later on in the they, things are really going to start quieting down and we see the cloud cover lingering around. overnight we see things clearing out a little bit so we could have some fog concerns for tomorrow morning. but then we start to see the real impacts roll through as we make or way into the late day on
6:43 am
into our commute for monday morning. that's when we are certainly going to start to see some of the storm chances ramping up. so, what are we talking about in the next 48 hours? very limited in terms of the accumulation today, trace amounts, by tomorrow, maybe about 2/tenths of an inch in many mountain locations. upwards of half an inch for those in the northern mountains and right along the north carolina and tennessee border but it's monday thru wednesday that's going to be our next storm track as we increase the rain chances, closer to 80, 90, if not 100% by wednesday and we could see even heavy accumulation at times. some localized areas, yes, you are seeing that 3" in western north carolina and western portions of the upstate. but, again, that's going to be held off for the work week. i would say get outside and maybe enjoy some of the warmer temperatures, just bring that rain jacket and keep an eye to the sky. 60 degrees laterb?

6:51 am
spotty showers mixed on in. but, i do think the rain activity is going to be reserved more so for those in the upstate and yes they are seeing the overcast conditions as well. the breeze is increasing there. above 8 miles per hour. we could see winds sustained above 10 miles per hour throughout the course of the day. nothing in terms of accumulation over the course of the next 24 hours. but, i do think that we could see heavier accumulations as we make our way into the upcoming work week. we will see a decrease in our temperatures at that time. the 60s are going to be area-wide this afternoon and tomorrow. >>evan: a siberian husky and puppies are fighting for their lives. claire was a pregnant stray when she was brought into the asheville humane society. claire's doctors soon realized that she had an issue with her lung. yesterday, she had an emergency surgery to repair it. her 8 day old puppies are now in foster care and requiring around the o'clock attention. >> nothing really can compare to that.
