Evening Showers Likely

Temperatures were a tad warmer this afternoon than what was felt yesterday. Isolated showers and thundershowers remain likely overnight closer to the Blue Ridge. Tomorrow looks to be the driest day for a while, with rain and humidity, but we are still expecting isolated showers to pop up. This 4th of July weekend looks to have typical summertime weather: party sunny mornings and more coverage of afternoon scattered storms.

Forecast Discussion

Unsettled summertime weather is the main theme of the weather for the next week. Tonight may feature additional showers, mostly near the Blue Ridge.

Tomorrow, courtesy of easterly moving high pressure to our north, we have some dry air encroaching into our area burning off the morning fog near the blue ridge. This means while we expect warmer temperatures we'll have less humidity. Isolated showers are still expected but with less than today.

After this respite, we have typical summertime days coming up as the Bermuda high dictates our weather, bringing warmth and moisture up to the High Country. Afternoon shower and thunderstorm coverage becomes more widely spread across the area for our 4th of July holiday weekend.
