Time For A Change
Wednesday, August 21 in Peaks of Otter
We have been in a hot and humid summer pattern for a few weeks now but that should change at least temporarily by the weekend to a more fall like pattern. However, it doesn't look like the nicest of weekends with more clouds than sun.
Hot and humid weather continues today and tomorrow with afternoon showers and thunderstorms developing, more so tomorrow than today. Friday is cooler but cloudy much of the day with periods of rain and some thunder as well. The weekend will have noticeably below average temperatures but there will be more clouds than sun and we can't rule out the threat of showers. Monday is similar to the weekend and we start to get back to more summer like conditions Tuesday with afternoon storms possible.

Time For A Change
We continue with the warm and humid once again tomorrow as high pressure controls our weather. Afternoon storms are more likely tomorrow than they were today as we start to feel the effects of a cold front moving in from the northwest.
The cold front is on our doorstep Friday morning and should pass through Friday evening. Friday looks to be close to a washout with clouds and rain/storms much of the day. The front moves south of us Saturday but not far enough to get us out of the clouds and away from showers/storms. Cool high pressure will wedge down the east side of the Appalachians bringing us cool, cloudy and damp weather for the weekend and Monday as well. You'll notice the fall like coolness this weekend. The wedge loses its grip by Tuesday and we begin to warm up with an increase in humidity and afternoon storm chances.
