About All Good

There’s a whole lot more good than bad this forecast cycle, if the name of the game is outside activities. We have a risk for a brief, passing shower today, but most places stay dry. Under generally clear skies tonight, it will be unseasonably cool and refreshing, or the coolest day this week (and probably for some time to come). Temperatures will slowly moderate later this week, but nothing really hot. Humidity levels will return to more seasonable levels by late week, and so will return our chance for hit-or-miss PM thundershowers.

We are finishing work on the 2018 Blue Ridge Parkway Calendar and hope to have it to the printer by early July with calendars available mid/late July. Click here for the winning photos
; however like the last couple years, many 50-60 photos from the Parkway will appear in the calendar.

About All Good

An upper level disturbance passing through the region today will generate a few extra clouds and perhaps a passing shower. It won’t amount to much. As high pressure builds into the region tonight, we’ve got one more unseasonably cool night ahead.

Wednesday will be bright and mostly sunny and perfect for the end of June. Thursday will be much the same.

For Friday and beyond, our old friend the Bermuda High becomes established again over the Southeast United States. It will begin to pump in more Atlantic and Gulf of Mexico moisture, thereby slowly increasing our afternoon instability. Widely-separated showers and thundershowers return by Friday afternoon, and become a bit more numerous for the holiday weekend. Still, a washout is not expected.
