A Weekend to Remember

An upper low will pull away from us today as high pressure gradually strengthens over much of the eastern US. Across the Southern Appalachians, it’s going to be a beautiful weekend with plentiful sunshine and seasonably pleasant Fall temperatures. The good times last through Monday before the “cold air damming” machine starts pumping in Atlantic moisture, bringing clouds, drizzle and fog beginning on Tuesday. These murky, unsettled conditions will last much of the rest of the week.

2017 Blue Ridge Parkway Calendars began shipping late last week and have been delivered to many stores across the region (with more on the way). At $13.95, you'll find no better source for great photography and information about the Blue Ridge Parkway. This year's calendar features a chronology of the history of the Blue Ridge Parkway. With bonus calendar pages for November and December 2016, you can use it soon. You're going to love 'em.

Forecast Discussion

As expected, the upper low that brought all the excitement last week will lift to the north today, and then hook off to the east across New England. The low will continue to bring drier, continental air into the region through the weekend, resulting in beautiful Fall days. There may be some patchy valley fog in the mornings, and we’ll see some puffy cumulus clouds in the afternoons, but that’s it.

High pressure builds across the Northeast states early next week, quickly nosing down the East Coast in a classical “cold air damming” configuration. It’s funny to think that upper lows will bring better weather than high pressure, but in this case is true. For as the ridge builds in, easterly flow off the Atlantic will bring ample moisture into the region starting on Tuesday.

We’re still not sure if the worst of the drizzle and fog will be confined to the morning hours. That may be the case on Tuesday. But by Wednesday and Thursday we’re looking at considerably more clouds and drizzle than sun. Interestingly, if hurricane Matthew tracks closer to the coast, this could result in better weather by Thursday.

As for Matthew, it’s now a powerful category 4 hurricane over the south-central Caribbean. It’s currently moving slowly westward, and we expect a northward turn later today. The tropical cyclone will likely impact portions of western Cuba, Haiti and Jamaica on Monday. The Bahamas will be affected as we move into next week, and maybe the Carolina coast thereafter.
