Bask in the Warmth

Today is one of those "dreamy" Saturday's you envision in the depths of winter. We'll call it a touch warm which isn't really true by late July standards, but it is fair to say given the overall cooler theme from the last ten days. The warm theme continues Sunday with showers and storms arriving late in the day, more so at night into Monday morning. This proceeds another unusual summer cool down for the upcoming week. There are a lot of nice days ahead. We'll not completely taint the great forecast but remember all good things eventually come to an end.

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 "THIS WEEK!" for Android (probably "NEXT 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 warm front rockets north today bringing a return to slightly above normal warmth for late July. The warm-up is short lived only lasting through Sunday. We're eyeballing our next cool down which is slated to begin Monday behind a cold front that stretches from the Upper Great Lakes to Kansas today.

There are a couple of factors in play that will lead to showers and storms, primarily late Sunday, continuing into early Monday afternoon. The first is a complex of storms racing through the Ohio Valley Sunday. While the emphasis for nasty weather will be well to our north we may get clipped by a few good storms late Sunday afternoon and evening. The second factor is the front itself which will help to drum up widely scattered thunderstorms Sunday night into early Monday afternoon. Once again, the bulk of the action will stay to our north, but it could be a little noisy and windy with brief heavy downpours Sunday night.

Significantly cooler air filters in behind the front as high pressure drops south courtesy of Canada. Temperatures beyond Monday will run about ten degrees cooler than average (or more) for the rest of the work week. Beginning Thursday, the high gets "stuck" over New England in a favorable position for another summer wedge scenario. Cloudy, damp, and cool becomes the story by Friday, Thursday is questionable, but we'll stay on the pessimistic side for another day.
