Land Trust Day

at Mast Store

All of us benefit from the work 

of our local land trusts

from enjoying a hike on a trail,

taking a sip of clean water,

watching a herd of deer cross

an open field, or keeping a

family farm in the family.


On June 1, all Mast Store

locations will be hosting a local

land trust to share info on 

their work. At the end of the

day, Mast Store will donate

20% of the day's sales

Typical Summer Weather Business

We get about the business of typical June weather this week, as we enjoy seasonable levels of warmth and humidity. These ingredients will give rise to scattered to occasionally numerous PM showers and thunderstorms every afternoon through Thursday. We might get into a drier patch for Friday and Saturday, before widely-scattered PM thunderstorms return by Sunday afternoon.

Voting in the RaysWeather.Com 2020 Blue Ridge Parkway Calendar Photo Contest has begun. We received over 400 entries. You can vote each day through June 24, 2019.

Forecast Discussion

Western North Carolina will be devoid of significant frontal passages during this period, but we will be loosely affected by a nearly-stationary front that will be oscillating east-west through the Ohio Valley and Mid-Atlantic states just about all week. There will be a number of weak upper-level impulses that will be traversing near or just south of the front, and these could enhance our coverage of showers and thunderstorms, centered on the afternoon and evening hours.

Scattered activity is expected each afternoon, with maybe the best coverage days coming Tuesday and Thursday. The passage of a weak front or surface trough may provide a couple of dry days for Friday and Saturday, with widely-separated PM showers and thunderstorms making a return by the end of next weekend.

After relatively cool and dry weather last week, temperatures and humidity levels will be returning back to near to above-normal this week.
