When It Rains...

Rain since summer has come in big batches--the hurricanes (Oct 8-9 and Sept 11-12) and today a juicy wave of Gulf moisture. This wave of moisture runs well ahead of a dry front that will move through the Southern Appalachians Tuesday afternoon. Expect periods of heavy rain today with blustery wind at times. Heavy rain and wind earned today a rare 0-Golfball rating. Rain ends late today leaving only stray showers this evening. Much colder weather arrives Tuesday night and Wednesday. Even a few flurries are possible Wednesday morning (trivia-level stuff at best). Temperatures moderate Thursday and Friday.

The colder weather should put you in the mood for our RaysWeather.Com Fearless Forecast for Winter 2017-2018 Enjoy. Saturday, the Woolly Worm Festival's winning worm, named "Aspen", predicted a cold snowy start to winter (weeks 1-3), a touch of snow in week 4, average temperatures for weeks 5-11 with a little snow in week 10, then a cold and snowy finish for weeks 12-13.

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 retail outlets across the region.

Forecast Discussion

A wave of moisture arrived late Sunday night. Monday is rainy with heavy rain at times. The whole region will pick up over 2" of rain today, the eastern escarpment (along the Blue Ridge) will total over 4" by sunset. The bulk of rain ends around sunset, but an evening shower remains possible. Clouds decrease overnight. Winds will be gusty today, especially at higher elevations.

Tuesday is a 'tweener--cooler but dry. Then colder air arrives Tuesday night leading to a seasonably cold Wednesday. A few flurries are possible early Wednesday, mainly along the western upslope and at high elevations. You will disappointed only if you expect more. There's far too much chatter "out there" about Wednesday. Tell your friends, "This is a lesson. Don't listen to or spread weather hype. We'll see snow hype on social media all winter long. Ignore it." Blustery winds will accompany the cold outbreak late Tuesday into Wednesday.

As high pressure moves across the Eastern U. S., temperatures moderate Thursday and Friday.

This weekend, another front will sweep east bringing another surge of colder air. Precise timing of its arrival is difficult--a Saturday night arrival is most likely. Expect showers Saturday afternoon into Sunday morning. Colder temperatures will be here Saturday night and Sunday.
