Continued Showers & Storms, Breezy

There is light at the end of the tunnel...tomorrow. This evening has more scattered showers and storms as a front moves through from the west. A brisk northwest flow develops behind the departing front so it will be particularly breezy this evening, overnight, and through part of Friday. I can't rule out a few lingering showers tomorrow morning in the strong NW flow either. The weekend has its challenges, but the takeaway is for more dry hours than wet.

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

Forecast Discussion

A cold front moves through this evening with lingering showers and thunderstorms. Behind the front we are left in a brisk northwest flow. Some residual moisture may be wrenched out in the form of isolated showers tonight and into Friday morning and will be focused along the TN border. Clouds decrease Friday afternoon if not earlier.

The weekend is made murky by upstream waves of showers and storms developing in the Midwest and heading southeast into the southern Appalachians. One batch looks like a decent bet Saturday morning or into midday. Another is more questionable Sunday morning. At this juncture we'll put more stock in Saturday which would mean morning showers/thunder that may spill into the lunch hour and then fizzle. The majority of the afternoon will be dry if all goes according to plan.

The first half of next week looks rather tame. A couple of completely dry days are possible Monday and Wednesday.
