Summer Returns

Pleasant weather continues today; however, a renegade afternoon thundershower is possible. Temperatures will be warmer with increased humidity. Friday has increased coverage of showers and thundershowers, especially in the afternoon. The weekend is noticeably warmer with widely scattered PM showers and storms. Looking toward The 4th, warm weather continues but PM thundershower coverage is reduced.

We are finishing work on the 2018 Blue Ridge Parkway Calendar and hope to have it to the printer by early July with calendars available mid/late July. However like the last couple years, many photos, 50-60, from the Parkway will appear in the calendar. Click here for the winning photos.

Forecast Discussion

After four cool days, we make a step toward reality today. Pleasant weather rules the day with slightly warmer temperatures and an ever-so-slight chance of an afternoon thundershower. The weather pattern is returning to typical summer Bermuda High look.

A disturbance moves northeast out of the Gulf of Mexico during the next couple days. It may have energy/moisture that previously was a part of tropical storm Bret (10 days ago skirting the Venezuela's Coast). Friday will be our wettest day; then widely scattered mostly afternoon showers and thundershowers will still be around Saturday and Sunday. It will be warmer and humid through the weekend.

Monday and the 4th of July are warmer and drier; however, I cannot rule out a stray PM thundershower Tuesday.

Fronts remain stranded well to our north, blocked by the Bermuda High; however, humidity increases Wednesday increasing coverage of afternoon and evening thundershowers.
