Not Bad for Dad

Father's Day turns out to be a pleasant finale to the weekend. In several ways today is a transition day as temperatures and humidity take another couple step northwards and plateau for the upcoming work week. A stray afternoon thundershower also suggests we've turned the corner towards a more unsettled future. Good coverage of mainly afternoon/evening showers and thundershowers starts tomorrow and locks in through at least Thursday.

Voting in the RaysWeather.Com 2020 Blue Ridge Parkway Calendar Photo Contest has begun. We received over 400 entries. You can vote each day through June 24, 2019.

Forecast Discussion

The weather map looks very similar each day through the upcoming week. A ridge of high pressure resides in the western Atlantic pumping heat and humidity into the Southeast. Meanwhile, (in loose form) a stationary boundary stretches from Delmarva through the Ohio Valley and Upper Midwest. By Friday the western Atlantic ridge strengthens and shifts more towards the Gulf. As a result the stationary boundary lifts north towards the Great Lakes and lower New England next weekend.

All of that spells a stormy stretch of weather coming our way beginning Monday and persisting through Thursday. Expect a daily dose of scattered afternoon/evening showers and thundershowers. A few overnight thundershowers are possible each night as well. As the ridge strengthens and the front moves north Friday and Saturday temperatures start to climb, but thunder opportunities decrease. All-in-all this is a rather normal late-June weather pattern configuration.

As far as today is concerned... Happy Father's Day to all the dads! There will be a few stray afternoon thundershowers roaming western NC, but dad can handle it :-). No need to abort your plans.
