Forecast Last Updated at Thursday, August 21, 2014 at 7:05AM

A Step Warmer and Drier

Wednesday was an active day to our west with a few storms making it into our region in a strong westerly flow. Isolated showers and thunderstorms will be in the Southern Appalachians again today, but fewer than yesterday. A warm ridge of high pressure is in the Southeast drifting west into the middle of the country. Friday will be a degree or two warmer than today and a stray afternoon thunderstorm cannot be ruled out. A backdoor front moves south through the Carolinas Friday night and Saturday adding clouds and precipitation to our weekend.

Bald Guy Brew (Valle Crucis), Stick Boy and Stick Boy Kitchen (Boone), and Biltmore Coffee Traders (Asheville) partnered with RaysWeather.Com to reward your purchase of a RaysWeather.Com App. At any of these locations, show them your RaysWeather.Com Mobile App and get a FREE COFFEE! (Offer details here.)

If you are one of the poor weather info deprived folks who don't have the app, here are the links... iTunes Apps for iPhone and iPad and Google Play Store for Android.

Forecast Discussion

The weather pattern is in transition mode with a warm ridge in the Southeast muscling west into the middle of the U. S. The Mississippi River Valley will be baking on high heat for the next several days. We'll get a taste of that cooking today and tomorrow in greatly modified form. Expect classic summer weather (and it's been hard to find "classic summer" this summer) today and Friday--warm with isolated mostly PM thundershowers.

As that ridge shifts west, an opening is created for a front to move south down the Atlantic Coast. It will move through the Carolinas Friday night and Saturday. High pressure in the Northeast will nose down the east side of the Appalachians. Saturday will be transition day--a few degrees less warm with more clouds and scattered mostly afternoon thundershowers. Saturday night, cooler air and clouds will take over with some fog and periods of rain (mostly light).

Sunday through Monday morning will be cloudy and cool for late August. Spotty light rain and drizzle will be around with fog. The west side of the Appalachians will be nicer/drier/warmer than the east. (It will be soupy along the Blue Ridge at times.) We'll begin to break out of the soup late Monday.

Tuesday and Wednesday will have more sun with seasonal temperatures. Computer guidance still has a tropical system, but today in the Western Atlantic--still anyone's guess at this point and not a direct factor in our weather.
