Forecast Last Updated at Tuesday, May 24, 2016 at 6:41PM

Back on Schedule

Ridge tops were considerably warmer than valleys this morning and that's almost always a sign of a warming trend. Thanks goodness! It's been a long haul of cool, cloudy, and unsettled days. The lid came off this afternoon as we ended up a solid 10 degrees warmer than Monday. In fact, the last time it was this warm was May 12th. High pressure centered over the Southeast keeps things dry until Thursday. From there on out we lean towards a legitimate summer-like pattern with fairly muggy days and pop-up afternoon thundershowers.

RelayWithRay.Com continues along the Virginia portion of the Blue Ridge Parkway. You can follow Ray’s daily blog posts at relaywithray.com/blog/.

Forecast Discussion

The upper low responsible for our most recent few days of unsettled and cooler weather is finally out of our hair. In its wake, high pressure builds over the Southeast today and Wednesday bringing plenty of sunshine and a return to more seasonal temperatures.

Thursday, the high migrates into the western Atlantic where it shall remain for several days subjecting us to a moist southerly flow. This is a very summer-like configuration and quite fitting given the unofficial start to summer this weekend. Showers and thundershowers fall into the pop-up late afternoon regime beginning Thursday and continuing through Memorial Day.

Notes and asides: The official start to the Atlantic hurricane season is June 1. Coincidentally, the weather forecast models are suggesting that we might have our first tropical depression or storm off the Southeast coast of the United States sometime around Memorial Day. The last time we had a tropical storm over Memorial Day weekend was Beryl in 2012.
