Showers & Storms
A front is moving through from the west today. Showers and thundershowers will begin this afternoon from the west. While it was dry around lunchtime we'll see redevelopment of showers and thundershowers this afternoon that lasts into the early evening. The potential for a thundershower fades late today. Friday and Saturday look really nice--lots of sun, Saturday warmer than Friday. While much of the region may get through with a dry weekend, we have to allow for a couple lines of showers/thunderstorms late Saturday night through Sunday.
By far, the most frequent question I have received in the last two years is: "When is RaysWeather going to get a mobile app?" The answer is "THIS WEEK!" for Android (probably "NEXT WEEK" for iPhone).
It costs about the same as a plain coffee at a coffee shop, but for years to come, it will be your "Go To" weather source when you are "On the Go" in the Southern Appalachians. Current conditions, Forecasts, Webcams, Radars, and the Photo of the Day--it's all in there from Grayson County VA to Waynesville and Henderson NC and everything in between.

This forecast is the tale of two fronts with lots of nice in between...
A front moves through today; however Wednesday evening was wetter than today will be. Dry for lunchtime but we must allow for the redevelopment of thundershowers this afternoon. It will all be to our east tonight.
Friday will be pleasant with high pressure centered in West Virginia in control. Today's front moves back to the northeast early Saturday allowing warmer air to return from the SW. But Saturday will be dry.
Sunday will be even warmer. We have to be on watch for showers/storms developing in the Ohio Valley moving southeast Sunday. I called it "isolated" meaning there will be plenty of dry hours Sunday.
Front Number 2 arrives Monday. There's not a lot of rain with it--even "widely scattered" coverage may be overly pessimistic. Temperatures will be a less warm with more clouds, but we'll still have lots of dry hours. The potential for showers will end by evening.
Tuesday and Wednesday bring the third major cooldown for this July--very unusual. Expect much cooler air behind Monday's front and two beautiful days. Unfortunately, what follows (next Thursday through Satuday) may be reminiscent of the muck we endured last Friday/Saturday.
