This past weekend, the temperatures in the 30’s had me opening the woodshed door for what I assume/hope is the final fire of the 2015-16 season.

Folks in the High Country generally woke up to cooler temperatures on Sunday morning as opposed to Monday morning. The low temperature recorded on Beech Mountain, for example, was 24 degrees, according to RaysWeather.com.

Here are a few of the other lows recorded on Sunday morning: 35 degrees in Boone; 31 degrees in Blowing Rock and 32 degrees in Banner Elk.

On Monday morning, however, Valle Crucis was among the coldest spots in the High Country with a low of 33 degrees. Earlier this morning, Valle Crucis was roughly 15 degrees cooler than Boone, according archives at RaysWeather.com.

“Monday may be the most pleasant day of the week after a chilly start. Valley frost in mid-May is not all that unusual. The date of last frost for deeper valleys climatologically is as late as early June,” RaysWeather.com posted this morning. “But I suspect this morning is the end of frost potential this season. The rest of this week has unsettled weather.”
