Summertime Blues

I hope you have a cure for the summertime blues because summer weather will be returning after Thursday. Fall like weather with below average temperatures and dry weather will continue tonight and Thursday. You will notice the return of summertime humidity on Friday as temperatures warm a little; especially overnight. Chances of afternoon and evening showers and thunderstorms return as well on Friday.

We are finishing work on the 2018 Blue Ridge Parkway Calendar and hope to have it to the printer by early July with calendars available mid/late July. However like the last couple years, many photos, 50-60, from the Parkway will appear in the calendar. Click here for the winning photos

Forecast Discussion

High pressure at the surface centered over the southern Appalachians will control our weather tonight and Thursday. The high will begin to shift east offshore the in the western Atlantic Friday and return flow around the high will shift the winds to the south and southwest. This will bring in humid air and there will be a noticeable warming of the morning low temperatures Friday morning. Daytime high temperatures will increase a little and the chance of afternoon showers and thundershowers developing over the ridges will return as well.

The weekend will see an increase in temperatures and coverage of rain and thunderstorms as our airmass becomes more unstable. A cold front approaches the southern Appalachians this weekend but gets hung up over the Ohio Valley and stalls out. The Bermuda High will control the weather for the southern Appalachians this weekend and early next week bringing typical summertime conditions.
