Calendar Check

It's been a battle to gain traction in the temperature department the last few days and today is no exception. Of course we're not complaining. A disturbance moving east through TN this morning brings the most pitiful chance of a passing shower or sprinkles late this morning into early afternoon. One sentence worth of text is almost too much :-). Clouds decrease this evening leading to a sunny and perfect Wednesday. Heat and humidity levels return to June standards by late week accompanied by pop-up afternoon thundershowers.

We are finishing work on the 2018 Blue Ridge Parkway Calendar and hope to have it to the printer by early July with calendars available mid/late July. However like the last couple years, many photos, 50-60, from the Parkway will appear in the calendar. Click here for the winning photos.

Forecast Discussion

A ripple of an upper air disturbance brings increased cloud cover and the slightest opportunity for light rain or sprinkles late this morning through early afternoon. Clouds decrease by this evening paving the way for a clear night and a super sunny Wednesday. Tomorrow is perfect as a modified area of Canadian high pressure moves overhead.

The aforementioned high slides into the western Atlantic Thursday where it remains through the weekend and beyond. A southerly flow on the backside of the high gradually introduces more heat and humidity beginning Thursday.

By the time we get into the weekend we're fully entrenched in early July soup. Daytime heating combined with the increased moisture will generate scattered afternoon showers and thundershowers. It's tough to get into specifics more than a couple of days out, but we think Saturday will have the best coverage. That said, there will be plenty of dry hours in the mix and computer guidance is leaning even drier as we approach the 4th.
