Forecast Last Updated at Wednesday, August 20, 2014 at 6:51PM

Finally A Taste of Summer

A few thunderstorms are making safe passage from east Tennessee into the mountains this evening. Due to the very spotty nature many of us stay dry. Further away in Kentucky a strong line of storms has formed moving southeast. They'll be running on fumes if they can make it this far, but we cannot rule out a few more thundershowers before midnight.

Summer weather has mostly been on vacation, but we'll get a taste of it today through Friday. Temperatures will be only slightly above average for mid-late August, nothing extreme. An isolated shower or thunderstorm is possible most anytime between now and Friday. Expect more clouds this weekend and cooler weather early next week.

Bald Guy Brew (Valle Crucis), Stick Boy and Stick Boy Kitchen (Boone), and Biltmore Coffee Traders (Asheville) partnered with RaysWeather.Com to reward your purchase of a RaysWeather.Com App. At any of these locations, show them your RaysWeather.Com Mobile App and get a FREE COFFEE!

Forecast Discussion

A front is just our our east and north. It moves slowly northeast during the next three days as warmer air from the Southwest pushes east. We'll have warm weather through Friday with isolated showers and storms each day.

The weekend brings an interesting transformation in the Eastern U. S. along with some tough forecasting. The warm ridge in the Southeast now slides west in the middle of the country (wow! hot there). Meanwhile a backdoor front will move south through Virginia and the Carolinas Friday night and Saturday. That front settles in Florida early next week and then fades off the map. Cool air will push south along the East Coast. We'll be in the battleground zone between hot (to our west) and cool (to our northeast).

The forecast here reflects a transition day Saturday with warm temperatures but more clouds and a few more showers/thunderstorms in the region. We are counting on a moist easterly flow to keep clouds banked up again the east side of the Appalachians Sunday and Monday. The west side of the Appalachians will be brighter and warmer than the cloudy/gray/foggy Blue Ridge. Spotty showers and drizzle will also be possible. There's huge bust potential in the forecast for these two days.

By Tuesday, the warmer air to our west begins to move back to the east. Isolated showers and thundershowers return.

There's some potential for a tropical system in the Gulf of Mexico next week. It's far too early to be serious about that, but I'm sure you will find some "weather ambulance chasers" hyping that tropical potential.
