Forecast Last Updated at Sunday, May 27, 2018 at 7:00AM
Humid; Risk of PM Thunder
We are in a muggy southerly flow. Daytime heating produces a round of widely scattered afternoon showers and storms today. Weather eyes will be focused on Subtropical Storm Alberto in the Eastern Gulf. It's expected path is slightly east of where we thought yesterday (landfall tomorrow around Destin, FL); however that 50 mile adjustment results in no changes to our forecast. We'll feel the brunt of rain from Alberto's remnant late Monday night and Tuesday as it moves through Middle Tennessee. Daily doses of showers and storms remain for the workweek, but there's good news for next weekend.
Here are the Winners of the 2019 Blue Ridge Parkway Photo Contest. We received 720 photos and over 16,000 votes. The cover winner was Johnny Davidson.. A rime ice scene from the top of Craggy Pinnacle. Congratulations to all the monthly winners. We will soon choose another 40 or so photos to be included in cameo roles. Thanks to everyone who participated in the contest.

After a big rain Saturday, we'll have less rain overall today. However, we do not all escape "scot free". Daytime heating in a humid southeasterly flow will result in widely scattered afternoon storms.
Today, weather eyes turn to Subtropical Storm Alberto. It's projected path has been adjusted about 50 miles east and is expected to make landfall near Destin, FL, Monday afternoon. From there, it moves slowly through Alabama and into Middle Tennessee, then finds an escape route north into the Great Lakes.
Those small path adjustments result in no significant change to our forecast... Memorial Day has a good dose of mostly afternoon and overnight showers and storms. We'll feel the brunt of Alberto's impact on Tuesday. Then we'll remain in "tropical soup" Wednesday and Thursday with scattered showers and storms, focused on but not limited to the afternoon and early evening hours.
A back door front arrives late Friday or early Saturday with much-wanted relief. Afternoon thundershowers remain possible Friday; however, drier air arrives next weekend giving us a pleasant reward.
