More October Goodness

The next few days will be quite mild as we enjoy ample sunshine. The weather looks great for getting outside and enjoying the fall colors on the Parkway, festivals, football games, or just getting some chores done. Wet weather returns in force for early next week. After the rain, it’s going to get quite cool again for the middle part of next week.

The 2018 Blue Ridge Parkway Calendar is packed with great photography from the RaysWeather.Com Photo Contest. It has climate information for the entire Parkway and includes pages for November/December 2017 so it can be used soon. Get yours at RaysMarketplace.Com or at many retails across the region.

Discussion

More October Goodness

High pressure is dominant over the eastern part of the United States. It will provide fantastic weather today through Sunday. There will be additional high clouds entering the picture for the weekend, although we think thicker clouds hold off until Sunday night.

The increase in cloudiness will be preceding an active cold front that will be approaching from the west early next week. The Gulf of Mexico appears poised to provide abundant moisture in advance of the front, and we expect rain to increase on Monday, with the heaviest rainfall coming late Monday into very early Tuesday morning.

After the front swings through Tuesday, partial clearing should commence after early rain diminishes. Noticeably cooler weather will follow in behind the front, delivering the coolest temperatures thus far this fall for the Wednesday-Thursday timeframe. A leftover shower on Wednesday could fall as snowflakes across the higher elevations, the first of the season for the mountaintops. It will turn generally clear by Thursday.
