Forecast Last Updated at Wednesday, August 4, 2021 at 1:04PM

Clouds; Seasonally Cool

We remain in a cooler than average airmass with lots of clouds in an easterly flow. High temperatures creep up a couple degrees each day through Friday. Expect lots of dry hours through Friday. Showers will light and isolated, but not impossible. We have two possible exceptions today: 1) a line of showers from extreme SW NC northward to extreme NE TN (Wolf Laurel may be that line for a while), and 2) increased coverage of showers is possible tonight in NW NC. The weather pattern returns to typical summer weather next week. In that transition, a disturbance moving east across the Appalachians sparks greater coverage of showers and thundershowers Saturday.

The 2022 Blue Ridge Calendar Photo Contest is complete. Our Grand Prize Winner is Valerie Seals with her photo of Big Creek in Great Smoky Mountains National Park. But there are 14 other winning photos. See all the winning photos at the 2022 Blue Ridge Calendar Photo Gallery. Many thanks to all the photographers who shared their time and talent with us. Once again, we had stunning photography to choose from.

We are now preparing the calendar for the printer and hope to be selling calendars by the end of August.

Forecast Discussion

This week is a weather oddity in the Eastern U. S. with a deep upper-level trough carved out from Eastern Canada deep into the Southeast U. S. A stationary front stretches from Cape Hatteras to the Florida Panhandle to South Texas. Cool high pressure is centered in the Ohio Valley today, shifting slowly toward WV and PA.

By next week, this anomalous pattern breaks down. We'll be back to the typical Bermuda High extending into the Southeast with no front in sight from the west.

A moist easterly flow keeps clouds over us today and Thursday . We'll have a bit more Friday. No more than isolated shower coverage is expected through Friday. We have two possible exceptions today: 1) a line of showers from extreme SW NC northward to extreme NE TN (Wolf Laurel may be that line for a while), and 2) increased coverage of showers is possible tonight in NW NC.

In the transition back to summer, a disturbance moves through Saturday increasing shower and thundershower coverage until early evening.

Sunday through Tuesday brings summer temperatures with isolated heat-driven PM thundershowers Sunday and Monday. We might see an uptick in afternoon thundershower coverage Tuesday.
