Perfect Parkway Weekend

The weather looks ideal for Parkway activities this weekend. Expect some nice late-summer warmth to accompany the dry weather conditions today and Sunday. Get outside and take advantage if you’re able! For Great American Eclipse Monday, scattered clouds are expected with just a renegade pop-up afternoon shower or thundershower.

2018 Blue Ridge Parkway Calendars
The 2018 Blue Ridge Parkway Calendar contains over 55 photos from the RaysWeather.Com Blue Ridge Parkway Photo Contest. But it includes much more--climate data, Parkway Information, and even November/December 2017 calendar pages so you can begin using it soon. Monday, we began shipping orders and the calendars begin appearing in stores across the region.

Discussion

Perfect Parkway Weekend

A cold front moved through late Friday and high pressure will take up shop across the mountains for the weekend. Saturday and Sunday feature mostly clear skies and very warm temperatures.

The front that moved through yesterday is stalled across the interior Southeast and will begin creeping back slowly northward as a warm front on Monday before fading off the weather map. Still, we believe moisture and instability recovery will be limited, so that there will be good opportunities for viewing the eclipse. An unlucky minority will have a pop-up shower to cause viewing obstructions, however.

Tuesday and Wednesday will have slowly-increasing coverage of showers and thunderstorms as a rather strong cold front approaches from the west.  It appears that the front will be east of us by Thursday, placing western North Carolina in a drier, cooler and less humid air mass for the end of the workweek.
