Forecast Last Updated at Thursday, April 28, 2016 at 5:50PM

Evening Thunder

Widely-scattered thunderstorms developed across the Foothills Thursday afternoon and will diminish in coverage this evening. Friday looks like a great day to get outside if you’re able. We’ve got a fifty-fifty weekend lined-up, with perhaps the first half of Saturday the best window for outside activities. A much-needed general rainfall is expected later Saturday night and Sunday, and it will be a bit cooler this weekend.

Merlefest is here. Thursday afternoon through Sunday is wall-to-wall music. We're so excited, the Golf-O-Meter has become the Raccoon-O-Meter featuring "Flattop" the raccoon. Weather for the festival will be good overall through much of Saturday. This afternoon may have a stray thundershower. After a perfect Friday, clouds increase Saturday with showers possible late-day and Saturday night. Sunday has showers as well. See our MerleFest Hour-by-Hour Forecast for details.

Forecast Discussion

A quasi-stationary front retreats north across Virginia this evening. A secondary cold front is moving east to west across Tennessee, and will move through the Foothills tonight.

This setup has ignited a few strong thunderstorms east of the Blue Ridge Thursday afternoon. The threat for additional thunderstorms ends later this evening. Behind the front, we’ve got a fabulous Friday in store, with plenty of sunshine and more very warm temperatures.

On Saturday, low-pressure will be organizing in the nation’s midsection and heading our way for Sunday. Saturday will be the salvageable of the two weekend days, with sunshine fading behind increasing clouds, and showers arriving later in the day or Saturday night.

Sunday features some long-overdue steady rainfall and cooler temperatures. This weather system will be exiting stage right on Monday, so we’ll get back to some pleasant weather after some needed weekend rainfall.
