Lovin' It!

It isn't often you hear people talking about how cool it is in July (except this summer). This is not a warning, but a heads up, it is a downhill slide after today. Clouds increase Thursday leading to showers late in the day which hang around for the better half of the weekend. By the time Friday rolls around the chatter will go from cool to "chilly". Mental note to self, take a long lunch break today and tomorrow.

By far, the most frequent question I have received in the last two years is: "When is RaysWeather going to get a mobile app?" The answer is "LAST WEEK!" for Android (probably "THIS WEEK" for iPhone).
It costs about the same as a plain coffee at a coffee shop, but for years to come, it will be your "Go To" weather source when you are "On the Go" in the Southern Appalachians. Current conditions, Forecasts, Webcams, Radars, and the Photo of the Day--it's all in there from Grayson County VA to Waynesville and Hendersonville NC and everything in between.

Forecast Discussion

Dry high pressure centered to our north gives us one more incredible July afternoon. It is our friend and our foe. Beginning Thursday, the high wedges down the east side of the Appalachians. Disturbances in a southwesterly flow aloft combined with low level moist air overriding the cool surface air join forces to bring several days of wet weather.

The weekend is not a total washout, but it won't be the prettiest one of the summer. The emphasis for widespread steady rain and fog is Friday. Saturday consists of scattered showers, if we play our cards just right, maybe even a few breaks in the clouds during the afternoon.

Sunday, the wedge begins to breakdown, still a lot of clouds, not much rain. Into next week, slowly but surely, it's business as usual. The Bermuda High resumes it's position off the Atlantic coast. A warmer airmass returns with the threat of mainly afternoon and evening showers and storms.
