Forecast Last Updated at Thursday, July 31, 2014 at 7:04AM

Downhill Slide

Writing the forecast this morning, I needed all the Jack Johnson I could get from Pandora to keep my spirits up. The pleasant (albeit cool) weather of the last few days will soon be distant memories. Clouds are overtaking the Appalachians with increasing moisture from the south. Light rain is possible this afternoon, steadily increasing in coverage and intensity tonight. Friday looks like a washout--clouds, fog, rain. Rain may be heavy at times Friday morning. While the weekend looks less dire than Friday, clouds with some rain remain in play.

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 "LAST WEEK!" for Android (probably "THIS 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 Hendersonville NC and everything in between.

Forecast Discussion

Remember the record cool/damp weather two weeks ago? That's where we are headed again.

A front is draped along the Southeastern Atlantic and Gulf Coasts. Disturbances will ride along that front for the next few days, even forcing it a bit farther west and north. Meanwhile, high pressure centered to our northeast will keep a cool wedge of air down the Appalachians.

The result for the next three days will be... Clouds today with light rain developing this afternoon and evening. Fog developing tonight and hanging tough along the Blue Ridge all the way into Sunday morning. Areas of heavy rain Friday morning tapering off in the afternoon/evening. Scattered light rain Saturday. Temperatures remain cooler than normal, but Friday will be ridiculously cool for the first day of August.

Sunday through Wednesday, we break out of the cool/clouds and gradually evolve into a more summer-like Bermuda High look to the weather map. Scattered mostly afternoon thundershowers will be in the area Sunday. Monday through Wednesday, temperatures gradually climb, and thundershower coverage drops to barely worth mentioning.
