Clouds Still Hanging Around

I wish I could say blue skies were for today, but it's not true. Granted, there will be times that the sun will peek through those clouds, however tomorrow and Friday are better opportunities for the sun to shine. Friday will be the best day this week. That is if you are into sunny weather with a few clouds. Enjoy it while you can, because it doesn't last for long. The weekend picks up where today will leave off with returning clouds and that repeating pattern of afternoon and evening thundershowers.

Here are the Winners of the 2019 Blue Ridge Parkway Photo Contest. We received 720 photos and over 16,000 votes. The cover winner was Johnny Davidson.. A rime ice scene from the top of Craggy Pinnacle. Congratulations to all the monthly winners. We will soon choose another 40 or so photos to be included in cameo roles. Thanks to everyone who participated in the contest.

Discussion

Clouds Still Hanging Around

Today, a cold front will settle in our area by late afternoon, and will make its way to South Carolina by Thursday. Meaning there is a better chance for scattered showers and thunderstorms this afternoon. Afterwards, drier air starts to enter our area Thursday and into Friday helping to reduce our rain chances for both days.

Brewing in the Gulf, near Louisiana, is the beginning of what could be a pre-season tropical development. As the low tracks North, our moisture and energy levels will increase, thereby increasing our chances for showers and thundershowers. This surge of tropical moisture will arrive in our area by late Saturday and especially by Sunday and Memorial Day and will continue on into the following week. Yes, that does mean there will be rain on Monday. Looking ahead to Tuesday, it looks like that familiar song and dance of Summer: the daily afternoon thundershower.
