Afternoon Storms

Well folks, I'll give it to you straight: We have one more day of unsettled, stormy weather. This stormy weather should kickoff in the afternoon and remain active into the evening. However, there is light at the end of this tunnel. It's sunshine! And plenty of it is in-store for the next six days. Starting Wednesday, the cloud coverage will start to decrease and continue to do so into Thursday. After this cold front pushes through, it will give a slight relief as the temperatures dip in the low 80s for a couple days this week. Overall, the middle and last half of the work week will be nothing short of pleasant. I know I'll be taking advantage of these cooler sunny days.

It's Calendar time again! Through August 26, we are selling the 2019 Blue Ridge Parkway Calendar at the pre-publication price of $12. Order yours now at RaysMarketplace.Com. We will begin shipping them August 27 and they will begin appearing in stores around the same date.

The calendar contains over 50 photos from the RaysWeather.com Blue Ridge Parkway Photo Contest. But it includes much more--climate data, a Blue Ridge Parkway map detailing popular waterfalls, and even November/December 2018 calendar pages so you can begin using it soon.

Forecast Discussion

This morning we have a strong cold front on our backdoor step, and it's effects will be noticeable today and through out this week. Come Wednesday morning the cold front will be making its way through Central North Carolina continuing to head East to the into the Atlantic. Behind this front, high pressure builds and is posed to blanket the Eastern US and become the dominant factor over the weather pattern for the next week.

Today will be the most active day with showers and thunderstorms that will impact us in the afternoon and evening hours. There is a possibility that some of the storms could be severe, however that's a marginal possibility at best. Afterwards, Mother Nature is giving all of us a taste of Autumn Thursday through Saturday. As temperatures cool for both the daytime and nighttime, humidity will decrease and the clouds will be few and far between. Looking ahead to next week, temperature start to head back into the Summer category and looks to remain that way for a while.
