Warm and Dry Weekend Ahead

A front has passed through the Southern Appalachians this afternoon. Although we can't entirely rule out a shower or thundershower early this evening, most of us should remain rain free as skies become partly cloudy overnight. Warm high pressure behind the front will give us a warm, dry weekend. For the Eclipse... While some afternoon cloudiness will develop Monday afternoon, I think we'll get a decent look at the Solar Eclipse. The event happens between 1 and 4 PM Monday peaking just after 2:30 PM. A stray Monday afternoon shower or thundershower cannot be completely ruled out.

2018 Blue Ridge Parkway Calendars
The 2018 Blue Ridge Parkway Calendar contains over 55 photos from the RaysWeather.Com Blue Ridge Parkway Photo Contest. But it includes much more--climate data, Parkway Information, and even November/December 2017 calendar pages so you can begin using it soon. Monday, we begin shipping orders and the calendars begin appearing in stores across the region.

Forecast Discussion

A front crossed the Southern Appalachians from the west this afternoon. Only a few widely scattered showers and storms accompanied the front. Skies will become partly cloudy later tonight as slightly cooler but drier air moves in from the northwest.

The front settles to our south and east and high pressure centered in the Great Lakes and Ohio Valley overtakes our region. Expect a warm, dry weekend--exceedingly nice for outdoor activities, but keep the water bottles handy for hydration since temperatures will be a few degrees above average.

Monday. Monday Monday... Warm, mostly nice weather persists. However, expect some afternoon cloudiness but a decent look at the eclipse. The period of the eclipse in NW NC is between 1 and 4 PM peaking around 2:35 PM. A stray afternoon shower or thundershower cannot be ruled out.

The next front arrives Wednesday night. As a result, widely scattered PM showers and storms develop Tuesday; increase that coverage to "scattered" Wednesday afternoon and evening.

The exit strategy for that front is not entirely planned for Wednesday's front, but for now we took the "quick exit" approach resulting in a dry, cooler, pleasant Thursday.
