Deja Vu All Over Again

You are not experiencing deja vu when looking at the forecast; we just don't expect much change in the daily conditions for the next week. We expect warm and dry conditions through Saturday even though Saturday has the slightest chance of an afternoon shower. Sunday looks to have a decent coverage of afternoon storms. There is only a slight chance of afternoon storms Monday. Tuesday is dry and the chances for afternoon storms increase for the middle of next week. Temperatures will be slightly above average for the week.

It's That Time!
RaysWeather.Com has sponsored a photo contest and a calendar featuring photos from our forecast region for the past 15 years. The 2021 Blue Ridge Calendar Photo Contest will change the rules from the previous 6 years allowing photos from ANYWHERE across the Southern Appalachians in Western North Carolina or Southwest Virginia. A portion of calendars sales will be donated to the Blue Ridge Conservancy. The photo contest is open for submissions until July 6, 2020.
Come on. Hit us with your best shot! Click here to submit photos.

Forecast Discussion

High pressure controls our weather through Saturday with warm and dry conditions. On Sunday, a cold front moves toward western VA from the northeast providing afternoon cloud build ups and scattered showers and thundershowers.

The cold front fades but there is enough instability left over Monday for a few afternoon showers and thundershowers. Tuesday looks dry under the influence of high pressure and moisture returns Wednesday so we'll have scattered afternoon showers and thundershowers. Temperatures will not change much from day to day and they will be slightly above average.
