Forecast Discussion

Skies were partly to mostly sunny today as high pressure held on for another day. An isolated shower or thunderstorm will be around through the evening, but the best opportunity will be closer to the Blue Ridge today.

A rather strong cold front for this time of year will be approaching early next week. Showers and thunderstorms will be likely with this feature until it gets through here later Tuesday night and early Wednesday.

Behind the front, we get a good two-day break in the action, with somewhat cooler but notably less humid conditions. Wednesday and Thursday look like great days to get outside and enjoy the weather.

By Friday and Saturday, an approaching upper level disturbance will encourage the front stalled-out to our south to return northward as a warm front as a low-pressure wave passes by to our north. This will bring a return to shower and thunderstorm opportunities by late Friday and especially to begin next weekend.
