Another Warm One

Another warm evening is on tap for the region tonight. Showers and storms stay north of us this evening but we cannot rule out a stray shower as the disturbance passes to our northeast early this evening. A cool front moves in on Saturday with a slightly better coverage of showers and thundershowers. Behind that front, cool and gray conditions will develop for a short period across the area from Saturday night through early Monday.

Bald Guy Brew (Valle Crucis), Stick Boy and Stick Boy Kitchen (Boone), and Biltmore Coffee Traders (Asheville) partnered with RaysWeather.Com to reward your purchase of a RaysWeather.Com App. At any of these locations, show them your RaysWeather.Com Mobile App and get a FREE COFFEE!

Forecast Discussion

A ridge of high pressure remains parked over the southern US at this time with a decent heat wave continuing across many southern states and warm for us tonight. Around the periphery of the high, numerous clusters of showers and storms are ongoing from Iowa to Virginia. Most of this activity is expected to remain to the north of the local area tonight. Overall, we expect the disturbance over southwestern Virginia to fall apart as it crosses the Blue Ridge, but cannot rule out a stray shower as it passes to our north and east.

Significant changes come over the weekend as high pressure over New England pushes a cool front south along the east side of the Appalachians. Temperatures will take a small drop Saturday, then really cool off by Sunday. We’ll go from above normal temps today to below normal temps by Sunday. As the front moves through, we expect widely scattered to scattered showers and thundershowers Saturday. Behind the front, a moist easterly flow will allow for lots of clouds, areas of fog, and patchy light rain / drizzle from Saturday night through Sunday night, especially right along the Blue Ridge. As is typical in this type of setup, areas right along the TN/NC border won’t be quite as grey, foggy as areas further east.

The cool wedge gradually begins to break down on Monday with more peaks of sunshine and slightly milder temperatures. We really begin to clear out Tuesday with lots of sun expected through the middle of next week. Temperatures will moderate during this time as well, but should stay close to average for late August.
