Another Nice Day

You can't get much better weather for August than yesterday and today. Today will be another nice weather day but we can't say the same for the weekend. Afternoon clouds, showers and thunderstorms return to the weather forecast beginning tomorrow and lasting through the middle of next week. Temperatures will be kept down a little by the clouds but it will become more humid. We hope you get a chance to enjoy the weather today.

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

High pressure will control our weather for one more day giving us plenty of sunshine and only a few showers or thundershowers in the afternoon. A cold front over the Ohio Valley gets close enough tomorrow to give us a wider coverage of afternoon showers and thunderstorms.

By the weekend, the front gets to our doorstep and stalls; giving us an even greater coverage of showers and thunderstorms. On Monday, the front begins to move northward as a warm front and this will bring us more warmth and humidity but afternoon showers and thunderstorms will remain in the forecast. Another cold front moves toward us on Tuesday and it looks to pass through Wednesday, giving us some really nice days mid to late next week. Temperatures will be close to average over the next week but the humidity will increase.
