Forecast Last Updated at Monday, November 30, 2015 at 5:01PM

Rain and More Rain

After a pleasant Thanksgiving Day weekend, we've settled in for a 3-day period of rain. Rain arrived Sunday evening and will not end until Wednesday evening. Rain totals by Wednesday evening will be generally in the 2"-4" range with the highest amounts right along the Blue Ridge (less west toward the TN/NC line). We'll see the sun again Thursday. Fog will be a travel issue tonight and for much of Tuesday. Monday's highs were at sunrise for most of the region with steady temperatures tonight then slowly rising early Tuesday morning.

2016 Blue Ridge Parkway Calendars are available. A complete redesign includes: a slightly larger size and tons more photography. Everyone agrees it's our best production yet. Purchase them online at RaysMarketplace.Com. You can also purchase the calendar from many retailers across the region;Here's a current list of stores.

Forecast Discussion

A front moved through early Monday morning from north to south. High pressure centered in New England is wedging cool air across the Appalachians as a wave of Gulf moisture rides over the top from southwest to northeast. We keep periods of rain through the daytime Wednesday when a front from the west finally sweeps through bringing drier air Wednesday night. 2"-4" of rain is a good bet by the time it ends late Wednesday.

Daytime highs Monday were at sunrise. Temperatures hold steady through most of the night with a slight uptick possible shortly before daybreak. Fog continues to be an issue well into Tuesday.

Cooler, drier air arrives Wednesday night behind the front. Thursday is cool with ample sun. We have taken rain out of the forecast for Thursday night and Friday. Computer guidance has consistently, for the last several runs, kept low pressure far enough east of the Atlantic Coast to keep us dry. The majority vote is for partial cloudiness Thursday night and Friday, but not rain. However, we still have a thumb on that page for future reference. Temperatures will be on the cool side of average but not really cold.

The center of high pressure moves from the Ohio Valley to the Mid-Atlantic. Skies will be clear Saturday and Sunday with gradually moderating temperatures--a nice weekend first weekend of December.
