Increasing Clouds; Active Weather Ahead

Smoke from the western wildfires may produce some hazy skies at times this evening. Clouds increase overnight along with showers and thundershowers. Tuesday will likely be a washout with rain and thunder off and on most of the day. There could be some heavy rain Tuesday. Temperatures will be cool Tuesday and Wednesday. Wednesday and Thursday are not as wet with rain focused in the afternoon. The end of the week and weekend is looking warm and mostly dry.

The 2022 Blue Ridge Calendar Photo Contest is complete. Our Grand Prize Winner is Valerie Seals with her photo of Big Creek in Great Smoky Mountains National Park. But there are 14 other winning photos. See all the winning photos at the 2022 Blue Ridge Calendar Photo Gallery. Many thanks to all the photographers who shared their time and talent with us. Once again, we had stunning photography to choose from.

We are now preparing the calendar for the printer and hope to be selling calendars by the end of August.

Forecast Discussion

Waves of low pressure will ride northeast along a stalled front to our south Tuesday and bring periods of rain and thunder (beginning overnight tonight). Tuesday looks like a washout and temperatures will be cool.

Wednesday looks cool and cloudy with rain mostly focused in the afternoon as the front and low pressure areas move slowly east. Thursday will have more sun as drier air tries to filter in but there remains a chance of afternoon/evening showers and thunder. Temperatures warm a little on Thursday.

Winds begin to turn more to the southeast and south Friday through Sunday and we get more sunshine under control of high pressure smack dab overhead. This means temperatures and humidity levels return to summer like and those pesky late afternoon and evening showers and thundershowers pop up.
