Forecast Last Updated at Thursday, July 2, 2015 at 6:47AM

More Rain for a Couple Days

A front will be just to our north for the next two days. As a result, we'll have an increase coverage and intensity of showers and storms both today and Friday. The first band of showers and thundershowers will develop to our southwest later this morning, moving northeast. Expect little or no sunshine through Friday. The 4th of July Weekend will be classic 4th weather here... fireworks dodging scattered mostly afternoon and evening thundershowers. Temperatures through the weekend will be slightly below seasonal norms with a slight trend warmer.

A New Station... Wednesday, we introduced a new weather station, the FloydFest Weather Station just south of Floyd, VA. Many thanks go to the good folks at FloydFest for making this possible. And we are looking forward to a great Music festival July 22-26.

Forecast Discussion

A front is settling slowly south through Virginia today. It will stall tomorrow near the VA/NC border. It will gradually fade off the map this weekend.

The front nearby will increase both coverage area and intensity of showers and storms both today and Friday. A band of showers and thundershowers develops in East Tennessee this morning and moves northeast later this morning and through the afternoon. Sunshine prospects through Friday are virtually nil. Temperatures are just below seasonal norms, but the humidity will make it feel warmer.

As the front fades out this weekend, showers and thunderstorms will still be scattered around the region with emphasis on the afternoon and evening hours. Don’t cancel any plans this weekend, but keep that’s Ray’s Weather mobile app handy to circumnavigate the showers and thunderstorms that will be roaming around.

The next front will approach next Thursday. Daily details for thundershower coverage are difficult to pinpoint from 5-7 days out. However, we think there will be a slight lull in overall coverage Monday, then ramp gradually back up as the front approaches. Temperatures will return to seasonal averages (just a bit warmer than the holiday weekend).
