Fabulous Weekend Weather: Act II

The weather Saturday was about as good as it gets for the beginning of August. Today was an encore performance as we enjoyed bright sunshine, very warm temperatures, but with comfortable humidity levels. There's no rain in our forecast until Tuesday afternoon at the earliest. Temperatures will be very warm Monday through Wednesday, before easing off thereafter.

Voting for the Blue Ridge Parkway Calendar Photo Contest will begin very soon. We are choosing the finalists now.

Forecast Discussion

In short, high pressure continues to dominate our weather, and will do so for a couple more days. This will ensure plenty of sunshine, very warm afternoon temperatures, with gradually-rising humidity levels.

Next week, a cold front will be sagging southward from the Ohio Valley eastward to the Mid-Atlantic. It will drift into North Carolina by midweek, with low-pressure ripples riding along it. This setup will favor gradually increasing shower and thunderstorm chances as we go into the latter part of the workweek.

How quickly the front settles southward will determine the longevity of our shower/thundershower opportunities Friday and Saturday. Right now, we’re thinking a wave of low-pressure traversing the front will keep the weather unsettled for Friday, before the low drags the front to our south and east on Saturday, placing the High Country/SWVA into the drier air during next weekend.
