Showers and Storms Tonight

A line of strong thunderstorms is dropping southeast out of Kentucky this evening. Fortunately they will weaken some as they arrive, but it will still be noisy with brief heavy downpours and gusty wind. Monday, a front blows through from the west with only isolated showers or thundershowers; a gusty west wind will be the most noticeable feature of the day. Unseasonably cool weather returns Tuesday and last through the rest of the week. This coming Friday and Saturday... remember Friday and Saturday a week ago? The gray monster returns.

By far, the most frequent question I have received in the last two years is: "When is RaysWeather going to get a mobile app?" The answer is "LAST WEEK!" for Android (probably "THIS WEEK" for iPhone).
It costs about the same as a plain coffee at a coffee shop, but for years to come, it will be your "Go To" weather source when you are "On the Go" in the Southern Appalachians. Current conditions, Forecasts, Webcams, Radars, and the Photo of the Day--it's all in there from Grayson County VA to Waynesville and Henderson NC and everything in between.

Forecast Discussion

A front stretches from northern Michigan to Texas tonight. Ahead of the front, strong to severe thunderstorms are rolling southeast from Kentucky. They will weaken as they cross the Appalachians this evening, but that doesn't mean we completely dodge the bullet. Brief heavy rain and gusty wind is likely as the stronger leading showers and storms arrive first.

The front crosses the Appalachians Monday with lots of wind but very little rain. The cooler air arrives Monday night.

Tuesday and Wednesday will be generally nice but seasonally cool. With cool air aloft, we cannot rule out an afternoon shower Tuesday.

The center of high pressure will be over West Virginia Tuesday and Wednesday then drift northeast later this week. Monday's front will be around the Gulf Coast with low pressure in Texas Wednesday headed east. The combination sets up up for repeat performance of the cool, gray, damp weather that overtook us 8-9 days ago.

Clouds increase Thursday. Rain develops in the afternoon and will be with us through most of Saturday. Expect fog (especially near the Blue Ridge) and ridiculously cool temperatures Friday and Saturday.
