Unsettled Weather Ahead; Scattered Action For The 4th

We'll see a slight uptick in the coverage and intensity of showers and thunderstorms this evening thanks to a frontal system to the north. Friday will be much the same, with good coverage of PM showers and thunderstorms expected once again. The holiday weekend is looking quite typical for early July. We expect mixed skies with scattered afternoon thunderstorms to dodge both for Independence Day and Sunday.

A New Station... We've introduced a new weather station, the FloydFest Weather Station just south of Floyd, VA. Many thanks go to the good folks at FloydFest for making this possible. And we are looking forward to a great Music festival July 22-26.

Forecast Discussion

This evening we have a slow moving frontal boundary from the NC-VA border, extending westward over TN and into the Southern Plains. This front slows to a halt and hangs around tonight through early Saturday.

As a result of the front and some contributing upper level energy, we will see the best coverage of showers and thunderstorms around western North Carolina today and Friday. For Saturday and Sunday, activity will be more scattered in nature, and mostly relegated to the afternoon and evening hours. Don’t cancel any plans this weekend, but keep that’s Ray’s Weather mobile app handy to circumnavigate the showers and thunderstorms that will be roaming around.

Temperatures today and Friday will be limited by cloud cover and showers. For the Fourth and Sunday, there will be a bit more sunshine, allowing temperatures to moderate slowly, but still running just a bit below normal. By early next week, the pattern takes on more of a Bermuda High look and feel, so that means typical July weather: A good deal of sunshine with those hit-or-miss PM thunderstorms.
