Days Of Thunder

We’re not talking about an old Tom Cruise movie, we’re talking about typical late-July weather fare for western North Carolina: Skies will be partly sunny with scattered afternoon showers and thunderstorms. Rather hot and humid conditions will facilitate these kinds of weather conditions over the next few days. The pattern gets drier again for the end of the workweek and the start of next weekend.

It's time again to... "Hit us with your best shot!" The 2016 Blue Ridge Parkway Calendar Photo Contest is underway. Photo submissions will be accepted until July 29. See the 2016 Blue Ridge Parkway Calendar Photo Contest page for details and to submit photos.

Forecast Discussion

Above-normal temperatures along with an ample supply of low-level moisture gave pretty good coverage of scattered PM showers Tuesday. This deal continues again Wednesday.

More of the same can be expected on Thursday as a cold front slips slowly through North Carolina.

The front’s final resting place remains somewhat in doubt. We feel that it will make it as far south as the South Carolina/Georgia area before coming to a halt. That should allow for a couple of dry days (Friday and Saturday), assuming of course that the front doesn’t get hung-up farther to the north.

By late in the weekend or early next week, it’s possible that the frontal remains may drift back to the north, placing western North Carolina in a better position to pick up a few extra afternoon thundershowers.
