Summertime Kickoff

Memorial Day weekend typically kicks off the unofficial start of the summer season for many. Grills will be grilling, pools will be splashing and the temperatures will be soaring as unseasonably warm weather is expected through Memorial Day. There is a nonzero chance of a shower or thundershower for the next couple of day, but basically dry weather will be the overall theme for the next several days.

The 2020 Blue Ridge Parkway Calendar Photo Contest is underway. Come on... "hit us with your best shot" from America's Scenic Parkway! Submissions deadline is June 3, 2019.

Forecast Discussion

A ridge of high pressure will park over the Southeast today through the middle of next week. The result is an early summer "heat-wave" across the High Country with afternoon highs topping out above the 80-degree mark and with minimal rain chances through the middle of next week.

A front makes a run towards the region from the west by the middle of next week. Rain chances increase on Wednesday and Thursday as the front nears. Temperatures remain warm on Wednesday but cool slightly on Thursday with more clouds and slightly better shower/storm chances. If all goes well, the front moves east by the end of next week with drier air in store for Friday. Temperatures however remain above normal behind the front.
