A Few Good Days

We will get a few good days of weather through Friday with sunshine and comfortable temperatures. By Saturday, a more summer like pattern will re-establish itself and there will be chances of afternoon showers and thunderstorms each day through mid week. The humidity will increase as well and temperatures will generally be above average; especially the night time lows. We hope you get a chance to get outside and enjoy the next few days.

Here are the Winners of the 2019 Blue Ridge Parkway Photo Contest. We received 720 photos and over 16,000 votes. The cover winner was Johnny Davidson.. A rime ice scene from the top of Craggy Pinnacle. Congratulations to all the monthly winners. We will soon choose another 40 or so photos to be included in cameo roles. Thanks to everyone who participated in the contest.

Forecast Discussion

High pressure to our north will control our weather for the next few days, giving us clear skies and temperatures with less mugginess. There is the slightest chance of late afternoon and early evening showers or thundershowers Friday but most areas will be dry.

By Saturday, the Bermuda High over the western Atlantic will take control and provide us with more humidity and warmer temperatures and increasing chances of afternoon showers and thunderstorms. By Sunday, we will be watching the potential for a tropical cyclone to develop in the north central Gulf of Mexico. At this time, it doesn't appear the system will have a direct effect on our weather as it meanders around the western Gulf coast. But, some of its moisture will get caught up in a frontal system moving in from the northwest early next week and those will work together to bring us widespread showers and thunderstorms each day. The cold front looks like it will stall out over southern VA by mid week.

As is typical in a summertime pattern, the showers and thunderstorms will be focused in the afternoon and evening with the early part of the day being dry.
