Forecast Last Updated at Thursday, October 8, 2015 at 9:05PM

Nice Evening; Some Changes Ahead

Clouds begin to build overhead this evening, while we still have the slightest chance of a stray shower early. Friday has ample dry hours during the day, but a front approaching from the west brings increasing clouds, widely scattered afternoon showers, and increased shower coverage Friday night. Saturday? Sorry. We'll have clouds, patchy fog, cool temperatures, and showers especially on the east side of the Appalachians. Your weekend pick is Sunday with decreasing clouds and seasonal temperatures.

2016 Blue Ridge Parkway Calendars arrive this week. Shipping begins October 12. Order yours today at the special pre-publication price of $12. We're all pumped about a brand new look and tons more photography. See RaysMarketplace.Com for details.

Forecast Discussion

High pressure in the Southeast is providing welcome relief after 11 days of clouds and rain. Today, the flow turns southerly. With that subtle change, we'll have more clouds this afternoon and renegade showers. Temperatures remain on the warm side of average.

A front moves through from the west Friday night. The hardest question is timing for the arrival of showers. Most of the shower activity will be Friday night; however, a few showers will arrive Friday afternoon. I pitched a slightly more optimistic daytime Friday forecast, nervously.

After the front moves to the coast, an upper-level low forms over South Carolina. Don't worry, this is nothing like last weekend. However, Saturday we will keep clouds, some fog, and showers. Temperatures will be much cooler. Conditions will be grayer, cooler, and more damp on the east side of the Appalachians with more pleasant weather on the west side.

It appears that the muck will move on Sunday. The day starts with clouds and patchy fog. But the sun will return and temperatures will respond nicely (back to seasonal averages).

The next front moves through Monday night. The daytime Monday is pleasant with increasing clouds in the afternoon. Expect showers Monday night into early Tuesday morning. Cooler temperatures come behind the front but not impressively cool. Tuesday afternoon and Wednesday will be pleasant with seasonal temperatures.

By the way, with the exception of isolated deeper valleys that saw frost September 14-15. Frost is now officially "Late". See our Frost/Freeze Page for Western NC for details.
