Still Cool For August; But Heat On The Way

A return to a more summer like weather pattern is on the distant horizon, but we still have another day or so of relatively cooler temperatures--a pleasant relief from summer heat. Only isolated shower chances expected through Friday with better rain chances arriving for the first half of the weekend. Then Bermuda high pressure takes over with summertime heat, humidity and daily doses of PM showers and storms late weekend into next week.

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

The region remains under the influence of an upper level through of low pressure that will continue to keep temperatures below our seasonal average today. A few isolated showers and thundershowers will develop this afternoon and evening as a weak disturbance moves across the region.

Weak high pressure takes a little more control of our weather on Thursday and Friday as the through begins to break down. This will allow temperatures to start to inch closer to more normal numbers while rain chances remain on the low end. Another disturbance will drop through on Saturday bringing our best rain chances of this period, although still with plenty of dry hours in between.

Bermuda high pressure then builds in starting on Sunday and looks to remain in place into much of next week. The result will be an increase in temps and humidity with typical daily doses of isolated afternoon shower and thundershowers.
