An advancing low pressure system and attendant cold front back in Arkansas is heading our direction. A passing light shower or two dot the landscape this evening but more showers arrive in bulk later tonight and continue into Friday afternoon. Tomorrow is notably cool & breezy. Skies clear Friday night. The weekend looks great!

In 4 days, you can see: The Avett Brothers, Sam Bush, Wynonna Judd, Brandi Carlile, Steep Canyon Rangers, Amos Lee, Keb Mo, Dailey and Vincent, Scythian, Radney Foster, Kruger Brothers, Chatham County Line, The Waybacks, and nearly 100 other great artists. Weather.... After showers (perhaps a thundershower) Thursday night and mainly Friday, we are looking at dry weather for the rest of the festival. See our Hourly Forecast for details.

Forecast Discussion

Basically all the rain for the next week comes late tonight into Friday afternoon. A few showers dot the landscape this evening with more widespread rain arriving later tonight. The rainmaker is an area of low pressure back in the mid-Mississippi Valley and it scoots through tomorrow. Friday is showery (thunder possible), cooler, and breezy.

Clouds decrease Friday night and the weekend is rather pleasant minus a breezy Saturday. A subtle front approaches late Sunday night, but is deflected by a ridge of high pressure building in the western Atlantic (a very summer-like configuration). I can't rule out a shower while we're sleeping Saturday night.

As the ridge strengthens the first half of next week temperatures respond accordingly and the days get progressively warmer. The month of May marks the beginning of the diurnal convective season. On cue, isolated pop-up showers could be in the the mix with daytime heating Wednesday.
