Forecast Last Updated at Saturday, February 17, 2018 at 4:15PM
Chilly Saturday; Then Mild
A chilly wedge developed on the east side of the Appalachians with moisture overrunning from the southwest. Periods of light rain developed this morning and will be around the area through the evening. Patchy fog will also be an issue through early Sunday. But the sun breaks through Sunday--a much more pleasant day. Clouds return Sunday night with light rain late Sunday night into Monday morning.
Milder weather tends to mean fewer photos sent for the Photo of the Day. If you would like 24 hours of fame on RaysWeather.Com, send us a photo today. It has a good chance to get in. Thanks!
Thanks for a great run, selling the 2018 Blue Ridge Parkway Calendars. You can still buy 2018 of course, but we are already setting our sights on 2019--look for the Photo Contest in February.

We have a wedge of chilly air Saturday banked on the east side of the Appalachians with moisture riding over the top from the southwest. Mostly light rain developed this morning and continues off and on through this evening. Patchy fog also becomes an issue through early Sunday.
Sunday, will start out cloudy, but the sun will make its way through the clouds and warm up to milder temperatures. This will be the nicest day this weekend. But, it isn't going to last long. Sunday night, clouds will return with a chance of light rain continuing on into Monday Morning.
Here's where it gets tricky. For the rest of the week, a high pressure system in the Atlantic will extend west into the Southeastern U.S., keeping next weather system from the Great Plains at bay. There is a disagreement between the weather models on how cold and wet it could be for the VA mountains because of this uncertainty. However, the models do show that we would be getting more rain than our neighbors in NC. Nevertheless, temperatures will remain milder than average for the rest of the month.
