Forecast Last Updated at Sunday, September 24, 2023 at 6:59AM

Warmer through Monday

Ophelia's remnant low is moving slowly across Maryland today. It will be New Jersey coast Monday. Warmer, drier air is overtaking the Southern Appalachians. High temperatures today are near seasonal averages. Monday will be a few degrees warmer. Enjoy two beautiful days. Tuesday through Thursdays, an upper-level low in the Ohio Valley and Eastern Great Lakes and high pressure centered in Eastern Canada will push a cool wedge of air down the east side of the Appalachians. The result will be three relatively coo, damp, gray days especially along the east side of the Appalachians.

The 2024 Blue Ridge Calendar is a work of art thanks to amazing photographers and a talented graphic designer. It captures the essence of the climate, terrain, scenery, and creatures great and small of the Southern Appalachians. It's available at RaysMarketplace.Com and dozens of retailers across Western North Carolina.

Forecast Discussion

Ophelia followed he forecast script well. Its remnant low is exiting slowly through Maryland, Delaware, and New Jersey. We have increasing sunshine and progressively warmer temperatures through Monday.

Tuesday through Thursday, an upper level low will move slowly east across the Ohio Valley and Eastern Great Lakes. High pressure centered in Eastern Canada will push a cool wedge down the east side of the Appalachians. It's a cool, damp, gray pattern we know well. The east side of the Appalachians (along the Blue Ridge) will be less pleasant than the west side (near the TN/NC border). Cool temperatures, occasional light rain, and fog develop Tuesday and will be in play through Thursday. The pattern should start to erode Thursday., but some fog and a stray shower remains possible into Friday.

By Friday afternoon we should be breaking out into increasing sunshine and seasonal temperatures. Saturday will be even warmer and drier.

Elsewhere in the tropical Atlantic, Tropical Storm Philippe formed as expected Saturday but should affect no land mass. Another disturbance just came moved off the West African Coast. The U. S. will have a lull in tropical action this week.
