Clear Sailing Ahead

High pressure will rule the roost for the next several days with plenty of sunshine and fall like temperatures. Expect patchy frost around the area the next couple of mornings before temperatures start to warm a little by mid week. That will lead us to a glorious weekend ahead for the Woolly Worm Festival and Valle Country Fair. Yes, our Fearless Winter Forecast will appear before the end of this week.

The 2018 Blue Ridge Parkway Calendar is packed with great photography from the RaysWeather.Com Photo Contest. It has climate information for the entire Parkway and includes pages for November/December 2017 so it can be used soon. Get yours at RaysMarketplace.Com or at many retails across the region.

Forecast Discussion

With Canadian high pressure centered over the Ohio River Valley this morning, temperatures are closer to where they should be for this time of year. Many are waking up to temperatures in the 30's with some patchy frost. Lots of sunshine today will help temps rebound nicely into the lower 60's by late this afternoon. Tomorrow morning will be a carbon copy of this morning.

The high slowly slides east through the week and temperatures gradually warm. Afternoon highs in the low 70's with no rain (hardly any clouds for that matter) are in store for the week. It's going to be a great stretch of weather to enjoy the fall foliage.

High pressure will move off the east coast by this weekend. The weather looks fantastic for any outdoor activities planned but an approaching front from the west will bring some increasing clouds late in the day Sunday with a couple of showers by Sunday night. Showers are likely by Monday as the front progresses through Southwest Virginia.
