6:34 am
19 in andrews. our western zones chilly. 31 in greenville. 36 anderson. 33 in greenwood. now, thankfully the wind is very calm here in asheville. not the case in boon at 15 or down into greenwood at 10. and an 8 miles per hour wind in greer. it does make it feel like 23 degrees and 30 out towards anderson. take a look at the big picture because we have changes heading our way. dry high pressure mostly controlling our weather as we watch the close pull up from the south from the gulf coast. the system will give us a decent chance for rain tomorrow, about a 70% chance. today is the day to get outside and enjoy the weather. sunshine through lunchtime, clear skies through dinner and then we will start to see a few clouds on the increase. this will stop our temperatures from getting too cold. it is looking like the timeline will hold often to lunchtime. if it does hold off we won't have a threat for snow or freezing rain. elsewhere across the region is more widespread and heavy east of asheville and south. so let's take a closer look now at how much rain is expected to
6:35 am
across the region, this model is pulling in almost half an inch if not more in the french bruise river valley. south of asheville, as i mentioned, it will pick up a little bit more even east into forest city. i do think this might be a little overdone. i have seen other models pulling in just about a quarter to half an inch in asheville at best. so, for today, warmer, 54 degrees for a high. increasing clouds tonight down to 30 degrees. 57 in greenville today. slightly warmer. and a few more clouds above freezing in greenville. seven-day forecast does show good chance for rain tomorrow into saturday. temperatures are going to take a nose dive though. look at the high temperature in the 30s sunday. so, the possibility for some wintry weather through the holiday. and into the upstate, going to be all rain tomorrow. right now let's get another traffic update. crews are working a minor wreck in yancey county. >>jaclyn: patrol is on scene at fits creek road on 15e. no injuries reported just keep
