Forecast Last Updated at Wednesday, July 29, 2015 at 4:52PM

Balmy & Active Through Thursday

The late July "muggies" hang around for another day ahead of a front that approaches from the west Thursday. We'll have one more day of showers and storms in the area as a front sweeps over western NC tomorrow evening. Friday and the weekend look terrific, still warm, but feeling much more comfortable minus the high humidity behind the front.

It's time again to... "Hit us with your best shot!" The 2016 Blue Ridge Parkway Calendar Photo Contest is underway. Photo submissions will be accepted until July 29. See the 2016 Blue Ridge Parkway Calendar Photo Contest page for details and to submit photos.

Forecast Discussion

We're one day closer to a short reprieve from the tropical feeling air that's been with us for many days. A front comes through Thursday evening ushering in drier and more stable air that persists through the weekend. Temperature wise, we won't notice much difference in the afternoons, however Saturday and Sunday mornings will be friendlier.

First, we must get through tomorrow. Scattered showers and storms will dot the region Thursday afternoon with localized heavy rain and gusty wind.

The front makes it to the coast Friday and stalls from the Mid-Atlantic southwest along the Gulf Coast. High pressure builds over the southern Appalachians allowing for lots of sunshine and dry conditions at least through Sunday. Temperatures and humidity slowly creep back early next week with only a small chance for an afternoon thunderstorm Monday and Tuesday.
