Clearing & Drying Out

Today started muggy before the front came through, now, there's a change in the air as we dry out and clear out overnight. The front that moved through earlier this afternoon now sits in the Piedmont. A stray shower cannot be ruled out this evening, but, the majority of the High Country will stay dry. After tonight, MUCH drier air overtakes the region. Friday and the weekend has severely super weather--sunshine, warm temperatures, minuscule humidity.

Voting for the Blue Ridge Parkway Calendar Photo Contest will begin very soon. We are choosing the finalists now.

Forecast Discussion

We started out this morning in a warm and humid airmass. Earlier this afternoon, a front moved through the Appalachians pulling the humid airmass south with it. This evening we're left with clearing and drier conditions, although, we cannot rule out a stray shower early this evening.

Friday through Monday, you will feel a huge difference. We go from muggy to arid with nearly full sun. High temperatures will be a couple degrees cooler initially before being a bit warmer early next week.

The next front is scheduled for next Thursday. Tuesday and Wednesday will be warmer (among the warmest of the season thus far) with only stray afternoon thundershowers.
