Showers Creep North

A front to our south fades off the map today opening the door for moisture to return. Friday has plenty of dry hours but scattered showers must be accounted for in your outdoor plans, especially this afternoon and early this evening. Shower and thundershowers will be more prevalent Saturday and Sunday. Early next week, we'll be watching "soon to be Tropical Storm Alberto" in the Gulf. It will reach Southern Mississippi late Monday and keep our weather unsettled much of next week.

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

In spite of clouds, Thursday was a drier/cooler day. Today, we keep the spirit of Thursday; however, as the front to our south fades off the map, moisture increases along with shower coverage. Keep your outdoor plans today but have a raincoat handy just in case.

Memorial Day Weekend, we remain in a moist southerly flow with increased coverage of showers and thundershowers, especially in the afternoon and evening. Temperatures are at or slightly above seasonal norms. We'll have some dry hours but be prepared.

Weather eyes turn to the Gulf this weekend as a tropical low near the Yucatan Peninsula today moves north in the Gulf and becomes Tropical Storm Alberto.

Details for our weather from Monday through Thursday depend on the ever-so-slow path of Alberto's remnant low across the Southeast and into the Mid Atlantic. We must play the forecast cards conservatively; however, some days will be drier than others. I wish we knew which.
