|Moon Phase||Waning Crescent Moon|
It's going to be another beautiful day with plenty of sunshine, pleasant temperatures, and (ugh!) pollen that's off the hook!
Temperatures are going to soar to 70° by afternoon under mostly sunny skies. All that sun is a great lift to your spirits, but may pose a risk to those prone to sunburns because the UV index is 9 out of 10 today.
Pollen will continue to be very high with tree pollen topping the charts. The primary pollens are oak (61%) and pine (23%), though grass pollen is starting to develop as well.
Rain on Friday is going to help knock pollen counts back to more manageable levels, at least temporarily. Showers will arrive in the mountains Friday morning, then become scattered across the Piedmont during the day. There may be a few thunderstorms as a cold front crosses the state late in the day. It will be warm and sunny behind the front, courtesy of a west wind on Saturday. The weekend is looking fabulous!
