Forecast Last Updated at Thursday, August 16, 2018 at 11:52AM

Another Nice One

High pressure that has been centered overhead the last couple of days moves east making way for a front to approach from the Ohio Valley this weekend. Without the stabilizing features of the high, a stray afternoon shower or thundershower is possible today. Overall though, it's still a very nice day. Increased shower and storm coverage returns tomorrow through the weekend as the front draws closer and stalls. Most of the action will be limited to the afternoon hours so plenty of dry hours remain.

It's Calendar time again! Through August 26, we are selling the 2019 Blue Ridge Parkway Calendar at the pre-publication price of $12. Order yours now at RaysMarketplace.Com. We will begin shipping them August 27 and they will begin appearing in stores around the same date.

The calendar contains over 50 photos from the RaysWeather.com Blue Ridge Parkway Photo Contest. But it includes much more--climate data, a Blue Ridge Parkway map detailing popular waterfalls, and even November/December 2018 calendar pages so you can begin using it soon.

Forecast Discussion

I feel like I keep writing the same forecast. "A front approaches from the west, stalls nearby for a few days, and retreats northwards as a warm front." In July and August, it is what it is I suppose and that's the story again this weekend.

Scattered afternoon showers and storms are the flavor Friday through Monday. Temperatures are held in check to some extent thanks to the additional clouds and rain.

A more progressive front gets here by the middle of next week and has enough forward momentum to make a full pass through the mountains. This round has the look of early September. Temperatures and humidity levels are knocked down to a very refreshing level for a few days beginning Wednesday.
