Back Into The Gray   

Clouds fill-in tonight after seeing and feeling a glimpse of what's to come. The rest of the week features a lot of clouds, although temperatures will be remarkably warm through the period. Rain chances will be there just about every day, with the best opportunities coming Thursday and again by later next weekend.

Thanks for a great run, selling 2018 Blue Ridge Parkway Calendars. You can still buy 2018 of course, but we are already setting our sights on 2019--look for the Photo Contest in February.

Discussion

Back Into The Gray   

Clouds thicken up tonight and some drizzle is possible along the Blue Ridge escarpment. We're on the tail end of a cool/damp wedge of high pressure being eroded. The rest of the week will feature a period of remarkably warm weather that will last into the weekend.

An unusually strong ridge of high pressure is anchored just off the Southeast coast of the United States. It will keep a rather strong frontal system nearly stationary to our west and north all week. Heavy rain from this system will be a newsmaker from the Arklatex region northward into the Ohio and Missouri River valleys.

The ridge will protect us from the heavy rain, but some light rain could fall just about any day, although significant rainfall will probably hold off through the workweek.

As the ridge finally begins to break down over the weekend, the front will gain some eastward momentum, pushing through here by late Sunday That’s when we will have a more solid threat for rainfall here in the mountains.
