Storms Tonight, Big Changes Ahead

A line of strong thunderstorms is dropping southeast out of Kentucky this evening. Fortunately they will weaken some as they arrive later tonight, but it could still be noisy with brief heavy downpours and gusty wind.

Monday, a front blows through from the west with only isolated showers or thundershowers; a gusty west wind will be the most noticeable feature of the day. Unseasonably cool weather returns Tuesday and last through the rest of the week. By Friday we get "stuck in the muck". Do you remember last weekend? It is going to be a near repeat.

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 "NOW!" 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 Henderson NC and everything in between.

Forecast Discussion

A front stretches from northern Michigan to Texas tonight. Ahead of the front, strong to severe thunderstorms are rolling southeast from Kentucky. They will weaken and fall apart to an extent as they cross the Appalachians tonight, but that doesn't mean we completely dodge the bullet. Brief heavy rain and gusty wind is possible with the stronger storms.

The front comes through early Monday with only isolated thunderstorms right along the front. A northwest wind cranks tomorrow marking the arrival of cooler days ahead. A large upper trough carves out a path of unseasonably cool air courtesy of Canada for the middle of the week. Temperatures will run 7-9 degrees below normal even under mostly sunny skies Tuesday and Wednesday.

Beginning late Thursday and heading into the weekend a cool air wedge scenario sets up across western NC. This will be very similar to what we experienced July 18 and 19. Clouds, fog, and rain hunker down for several days leading to impressively cool (and dreary) weather.
