Dodgeball

As we kick off the all-important Memorial Day weekend, we’re going to have a dodgeball theme to the forecast as we have to avoid quite a few showers and thunderstorms thrown our way through the period. It won’t be a total washout, but you’d better have a 'Plan B' handy in case the weather chases you indoors. Temperatures, at least, will be pleasantly warm.

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

Dodgeball

An aging stationary front to our south will be returning to the north today and dissipating. That will put western North Carolina back into a moist/humid air mass, one that will be conducive for scattered showers and thundershowers during the afternoon and evening.

The weekend will feature lots of clouds, with more scattered to numerous showers and thunderstorms, particularly through the afternoon and into the evening. But it’s difficult to rule out a shower at any time during the day or night.

We’re closely monitoring a tropical low that will likely become Tropical Storm Alberto at some point over the holiday weekend. This low is expected to reach the central Gulf Coast by Memorial Day, and then slowly drift to the north or northeast. It will probably have a direct impact on our weather during next week as it slowly heads in our direction. Obviously, there will be a threat for heavy rainfall depending on exactly how this system ultimately tracks.
