Overall Nice Weekend

Drier air entered the region behind a front sinking south into South Carolina Saturday. As a result, showers/thundershower coverage was virtually nil Saturday, and then only isolated storms are expected Sunday afternoon. Temperatures are slightly above seasonal averages this weekend. Enjoy a nice summer weekend! An approaching front from the northwest produces widespread showers and storms Monday.

Ray continues to blog periodically in the wake of Relay with Ray. Ray added a new blog Wednesday, an interview with Don Lister, the only other person to have run the Blue Ridge Parkway in consecutive days.

Forecast Discussion

A weak front moved through NC Saturday night and is sliding south into South Carolina Saturday. High pressure in the Northeast is providing a weak push of more stable air into the Old North State. As a result, coverage of afternoon showers and storms was virtually nil Saturday. Sunday will have only isolated afternoon coverage. Temperatures are near or just above than seasonal norms--comfortable by summer standards. Hope you are able to enjoy a generally pleasant weekend!

The storyline changes quickly Monday as a front approaches from the northwest and Friday night's front returns as a warm front. Monday brings widespread showers and storms especially in the afternoon and overnight. A few showers and storms may linger into Tuesday.

That next front will move through Western North Carolina Tuesday night or early Wednesday. We have another period of generally pleasant weather Wednesday through Friday. I did not mention of afternoon thunder Wednesday; hopefully that's not too optimistic. Then isolated afternoon thunderstorms return Thursday and Friday.
