True Summer Fashion

The next couple of days are rather typical summer fare. Though not especially hot or overly humid, there will be enough juice around to promote widely scattered to isolated afternoon and evening thundershowers through Friday. This weekend is more unsettled as a front approaches from the northwest and stalls "close enough" to home. It's tough to say which day will be the wettest, but go ahead and make a mental note and have a Plan B lined-up for any afternoon or evening outdoor festivities.

Ray continues to blog periodically in the wake of Relay with Ray. Ray added a new blog Wednesday, an interview with Don Lister, the only other person to have run the Blue Ridge Parkway in consecutive days.

Forecast Discussion

A front slowly moved to our east Tuesday night but doesn't make it much further than the central Piedmont through Friday. That's close enough to warrant isolated thundershower opportunities each day with an emphasis on the "best" chance this afternoon and evening... we're almost splitting hairs.

This weekend a front drops southeast from Canada and stalls across the central and southern Appalachians. As it stands now we'll put a little stock in the fact the frontal boundary will be just to our north with the core storm axis through the Ohio Valley and Virginias. However, that doesn't mean we're in the clear. It means it won't be as wet as it could be.

The takeaway Saturday through Independence Day is for scattered, mainly PM showers and thundershowers, nothing out of control. There will be dry hours in the mix, especially in the morning and early afternoon.

The front washes out as it lifts north next Tuesday in response to a building heat ridge centered over the Southeast. Rain opportunities decrease thereafter with likely the hottest air of the summer arriving by late in the week.
