It Has Begun...

The transition to more Fall-like temperatures is now in the works. First, a subtle front is working south from Virginia today. While temperatures remain a few degrees above average it won't be nearly as warm. A rogue afternoon shower or thundershower is not out of the question with the front in our vicinity.

Tuesday, a stronger cold front makes a pass with scattered showers developing ahead of the front Monday afternoon continuing into the nighttime hours. We'll take the rain, but rainfall amounts aren't overly exciting. Temperatures fall step-wise a few degrees each day through Thursday... you will be reaching for a jacket shortly.

2017 Blue Ridge Parkway Calendars begin shipping today and are being delivered to stores across the region. At $13.95 (plus shipping and applicable taxes), you'll find no better source for great photography and information about the Blue Ridge Parkway.

Discussion

It Has Begun...

The tale of two fronts... the first one works south through NC today knocking temperatures down by 5-7 degrees from the record breaking warmth Saturday. Clouds increase this afternoon with a rogue shower or thundershower not out of the question.

High pressure centered over New England briefly wedges down the eastern slopes of the Appalachians Monday. Increased cloud cover will knock temps down a few more degrees. Meanwhile, a stronger cold front approaches from the west leading to scattered afternoon showers continuing into the nighttime hours. The front passes Tuesday with morning clouds and perhaps a lingering shower early.

Behind the front a persistent northwest flow ushers in considerably cooler air. Cool enough that we'll reverse the trend from above average warmth to just below seasonal temperatures beginning Wednesday night through the rest of the work week.

Side note- an upper level low that will help promote the cool turnaround may meander far enough south to bring more than just cooler days. Right now we have a dry forecast beyond Tuesday. However, if the low becomes displaced towards the southern Appalachians we'd have to introduce a few days of rain late in the week. We wouldn't complain about the rain, but it would require wholesale changes to the forecast...
