Forecast Last Updated at Thursday, October 8, 2015 at 6:45PM

Shower Chances Increasing Late Friday

We'll have some clouds build in overnight with a slight chance at a stray shower early this evening. Friday doesn’t look shabby, after a few areas of patchy fog burn off, there will be a small chance for an afternoon shower (or maybe a thundershower), with perhaps better coverage Friday night. Saturday looks cloudy, rather cool, and showery. Sunday definitely looks like the better of the two weekend days to get outside.

2016 Blue Ridge Parkway Calendars arrive this week. Shipping begins October 12. Order yours today at the special pre-publication price of $12. We're all pumped about a brand new look and tons more photography. See RaysMarketplace.Com for details.

Forecast Discussion

High pressure is going to hold on for most of the next two days before a cold front brings more rainfall to the area by late Friday and particularly on Saturday.
Scattered clouds build over the Southern Appalachians tonight with a slight chance at an early evening shower. We'll start off Friday will some areas of patchy fog, then we'll become partly sunny, with isolated afternoon showers. Shower chances will be on the rise Friday night, however.

The front trudges through slowly on Saturday with a wave of low pressure retarding its forward speed. That sort of fouls-up Saturday for outside activities, as we expect cloudy skies, cooler temperatures, and off-and-on showers.

Sunday will have improvement, with morning clouds giving way to sunshine. Looking ahead, next week looks quiet and nice. A cold front coming through Monday night or Tuesday morning will create some clouds, but probably not much rainfall of note.
