Dog Days Of Summer

It’s a “broken-record” pattern for western North Carolina, as we experience rather typical midsummer weather for the weekend. Expect a good deal of sunshine through Sunday, with isolated afternoon showers and thunderstorms. Temperatures will continue to run around 5-degrees above late-July averages. Moving into next week, temperatures will ease-off slightly as we enjoy somewhat better coverage of PM thundershowers.

The Golf-O-Meter has temporally become the Fest-O-Meter. RaysWeather.Com is the weather forecast partner of FloydFest, rated one of the best music festivals in the country. Floydfest happens next Wednesday through Sunday (July 27-31), just south of Floyd, VA. For festival details see FloydFest.Com.

Forecast Discussion

The summer “Dog Days” are here, and the weather playbook won’t bring any big surprises. Expect ample sunshine today and Sunday, plus a few hit-or-miss afternoon showers and thunderstorms around the mountains. Temperatures will remain unseasonably warm and it will be rather humid.

The Carolinas are often frontal graveyards during late July and August. We expect this to be the case again next week as a cold front limps south/east and stalls somewhere in our vicinity toward the middle part of next week.

It’s quite doubtful the front gets south of us, or provides any meaningful air mass change. What is more likely is an increase in PM shower and thunderstorm activity over the mountains. The resulting increase in clouds and more numerous thundershowers will tend to lower temperatures a modest amount.
