Forecast Last Updated at Wednesday, October 28, 2020 at 6:42AM

Gully Washer and a Bad Hair Day

Rain will move in later this morning and last throughout the daytime. The heaviest rain will occur overnight through Thursday morning. Occasional rain will persist into Thursday night, gradually tapering off to a few showers Friday morning. Rainfall totals should generally be in the 2-3 inch range with a few spots getting more. Southerly winds will pick up this afternoon and become gusty overnight. Winds increase even more Thursday with 50 mph gusts not out of the question. The wind switches to the NW Friday but remains gusty, up to 40 mph. Temperatures begin dropping Thursday evening and Friday will be much cooler. The weekend looks cool and dry and we turn even colder early next week.

Ray Russell's 2020-2021 Winter Fearless Forecast is now available. The bottom line for the forecast is: 1) less than average snow and 2) slightly warmer than average temperatures. We will have a few significant snow events but prolonged cold periods will be difficult to sustain. Get all the details here. The Fearless Forecast is sponsored by Peak Insurance Group.

The 2021 Blue Ridge Calendar is in stores now.  Visit RaysMarketPlace.com for a complete listing of retailers or purchase online.  A portion of the proceeds goes to support the important work of the Blue Ridge Conservancy.

Forecast Discussion

Hurricane Zeta is expected to make landfall along the southeast Louisiana coast later today as a category 1, perhaps and category 2, hurricane. Zeta's remnants will join forces with a non tropical low moving across the southern Plains and move across the Southeast and southern Appalachians Thursday. The entire system will move off the mid-Atlantic coast Friday.

The results will be rain, beginning later this morning, and gusty winds beginning later tonight. The heaviest rain will be overnight into Thursday morning and the rain should gradually wind down by Friday morning. Rain totals will likely be in the 2-3 inch range with some spots getting higher totals. Winds will be from the south and become stronger and gusty overnight. Winds pick up more Thursday and we could see gusts near 50 mph from the south.

Colder air moves in Friday along with gusty winds from the northwest. Winds could gust to near 40 mph on Friday before diminishing Friday night. Chilly high pressure controls our weather Saturday with sunshine and cool temperatures. We warm a little ahead of a cold front Sunday and there could be a rogue shower or two. The cold front moves through Sunday night with much colder air behind it for Monday along with strong and gusty winds once again. We warm a little Tuesday as high pressure takes control of our weather.
