Forecast Last Updated at Tuesday, August 4, 2015 at 7:00PM

Maybe an Evening T-Storm

After a rather warm day by August standards, a broken line of showers and t-showers is approaching from the northwest this evening. Isolated PM thunderstorms remain in the forecast for Wednesday. A stationary front Thursday and Friday bring the best opportunity for rain in the last week which will hold temperatures down considerably by Friday. If we play our cards just right this weekend it could be a near repeat of the recent severely nice days. That's pretty tough to do this time of year.

RaysWeather.Com is now BACK in Tennessee... RedTailWeather.Com is now "live", with the station also included on BooneWeather.Com. Many thanks to the good folks at RedTail Mountain Resort for working with us to get back into NE Tennessee after a 2 year absence. And there's more to come there in a few months.

The photographers who contributed to the 2016 Blue Ridge Parkway Calendar are awesome! We agonized to get almost 600 submissions down to 25 or so finalists in each category. Vote to your hearts delight. Voting ends August 10, 2015. We need more months of the year to accommodate all the great submissions.

Forecast Discussion

High pressure loses it's grip on the southeast this evening as a very subtle cool front drops south, bringing some showers and thundershowers into the region. The front continues a slow journey towards the Gulf Coast region this weekend. During the slow transition a wave of low pressure develops in the TN Valley and marches east Thursday night and Friday eventually exiting off the Mid-Atlantic coast Saturday.

The end game for our region is a rather unsettled couple of days Thursday and Friday. We'll place an emphasis on shower and thunderstorms coverage late Thursday afternoon and night. Friday will likely start out with scattered showers and gradually become nicer as the day progresses. Thanks to clouds and showers it will be cooler both days, especially Friday.

Saturday and Sunday, we've brightened the outlook for the weekend with near normal temperatures and a slight chance for a late-day shower or thundershower. Assuming those ideas hold it will be almost as nice as this past weekend, though not quite as cool in the mornings.
