Slowly Improving Weekend

Temperatures today made you do a "double-take" on the calendar. August 1st, really?! Moisture transport is being robbed by more stormy weather along the Atlantic Coast and in the Piedmont. Fog will continue to be an issue especially along the eastern escarpment (aka, the Blue Ridge). About the only other thing to write home about are scattered light showers and drizzle overnight. The weekend features clouds, a slow temperature recovery (but still below seasonal norms), and widely scattered mostly afternoon showers (maybe a thundershower Sunday).

The RaysWeather.Com Mobile App... Get it for Android at the Google Play Store.
iPhone and iPad users... When I said "probably this week", I did not realize that the review process at Apple takes about a week. It's complete and submitted to iTunes, but we have to wait on Apple to bless it before it will be available.

We are pleased to announce a brand new addition to Ray's Weather today! is up and running thanks to our new media partner WHKP 1450 AM in Hendersonville.

Forecast Discussion

Really, Friday was not as wet as previously advertised. Thunderstorms along the Southeast Atlantic Coast and another line in the Foothills and Piedmont robbed the moisture transport in our southeasterly flow. Patchy fog persists tonight with patchy drizzle or passing light showers.

A front will be stalled along the Atlantic and Gulf Coast from today through the middle of next week. Tropical Storm Bertha formed yesterday. It's in the Eastern Caribbean and will move across Puerto Rico Saturday, then brush the Bahamas and head NE between the U. S. and Bermuda early next week. It's not a factor in our weather other than keeping the pattern in the Southeast gommed up (Yes, spell checker, it is "gommed" not "gummed".) and stationary. By the middle of next week, the next front will approach in "back door" fashion from the north.

The weekend looks generally cloudy with a few mostly afternoon showers but not all that wet. Temperatures will gradually recover from today's cool. A thundershower is possible Sunday afternoon. Patchy fog will be possible at night and early morning especially along the Blue Ridge.

Early next week will be warmer (back near seasonal norms). Afternoon thundershower coverage will be "isolated" Monday and Tuesday. We nudged thundershower coverage slightly higher for Wednesday and Thursday with the front approaching from the north.
