Forecast Last Updated at Saturday, August 1, 2015 at 5:29PM
August began on a quiet and very pleasant note as we started off the weekend with bright sunshine and pleasant temperatures/humidity levels. Sunday will be ditto Saturday, except maybe add a degree or so onto the afternoon high temperatures. Early next week will be hotter and still dry, exacerbating the drought. The chance for showers will go up after midweek.
Voting for the Blue Ridge Parkway Calendar Photo Contest will begin very soon. We are choosing finalists now.

It was a comfortable start to August this morning, and today was bright and sunny with very warm afternoon temperatures. High pressure controls our weather, as a stationary front extends from the coastal Carolinas to the Gulf Coast. Active weather remains along and to the south of this boundary.
Afternoon heat will become more of a factor after today. While morning lows will be close to normal, we’ll be running consistently 3-5 degrees warmer than normal in the afternoons. Skies will continue to be mostly sunny through next Tuesday.
The next weather-maker will be a cold front that will approach the Carolinas next Thursday, probably passing through the area on Friday. That will elevate the chance for showers and thunderstorms going into Thursday, then falling off again on Friday. Temperatures will start easing back down during this period as well.
