Soggy Cyber Monday

It’s probably a good thing that it is Cyber Monday, as there’s not much you can do outside today with lots of rain and noticeably cooler temperatures. Occasional light rain continues on Tuesday before picking up in intensity again for Tuesday night and through much of Wednesday. Finally, we’ll get some clearing by Wednesday night and it will turn a bit cooler. Event total rainfall (from Sunday PM through Wednesday) will be in the one to three inch range with locally higher amounts. Some much needed drying is anticipated for the remainder of the workweek and through next weekend.

2016 Blue Ridge Parkway Calendars are available. A complete redesign includes: a slightly larger size and tons more photography. Everyone agrees it's our best production yet. Purchase them online at RaysMarketplace.Com. The calendar is also arriving at many stores; here's a current list of stores.

Forecast Discussion

On the weather map, a semi-stationary frontal boundary snakes from off the Texas coast northward into Kentucky, then southeastward into the Carolinas. Cooler high pressure is wedging into our area today and provide a mechanism for lift as warmer moist air overruns the cooler wedge. This translates simply to a lot of rain today along with noticeably cooler temperatures.

The cool wedge will begin to erode on Tuesday, and we expect a lull in the rain before steadier/heavier rain returns Tuesday night along and ahead of the cold front which will start moving slowly eastward. As the front moves bodily into the western Carolinas, more rain, heavy at times, can be expected for Wednesday daytime.

Clearing commences late in the day or Wednesday night. A disturbance tracking along the southern belt of the Jet Stream is presently expected to miss us to the south, so we should be able to enjoy several days of dry weather after our heavy rainfall episode ends late Wednesday afternoon.
