Weekend Breakout

The cool and breezy spell closes out the work week before breakout warmth arrives for Saturday afternoon. Mother’s Day is looking better and better with a good deal of sunshine and very warm temperatures for Mom. Springtime weather looks here to stay next week, with mostly dry and warm conditions through midweek.

RelayWithRay.Com It's the craziest thing I have ever seriously considered doing... Beginning May 17, I'm running the Blue Ridge Parkway. See RelayWithRay.Com for details.

Many thanks to everyone who submitted photos in the 2017 Blue Ridge Parkway Calendar Photo Contest. It was an amazing set to choose from. And the winners are... .

Forecast Discussion

The upper level low-pressure system that has been affecting our weather is still spinning along the Mid-Atlantic coast. Despite it remaining cool the impacts are lessening with decreasing clouds tonight.

High pressure builds in on Saturday, promoting some mighty fine weather and a noticeable warm-up. A weak front will sag down from the north on Sunday, with just a stray shower around for Mother's Day. Even so, it will be nice and warm for Mom with ample sunshine.

The weather map next week looks very springlike, with NC remaining in a warm sector air mass through midweek. It’s possible that an isolated shower or thundershower could occur Tuesday or Wednesday afternoon, but dry and warm weather is favored at this time.

A weak front could give us an uptick in shower and thunderstorm activity by late Thursday.
