Forecast Last Updated at Tuesday, September 27, 2016 at 6:58AM

Grass is Greener

It's almost weird to see and hear rain :-). After early morning showers we'll have a break in the action with isolated showers developing this afternoon. The pause button is pressed for much of the day Wednesday, more sunshine and isolated late-day showers returning. Thursday brings another round of rain and considerably cooler temperatures, perhaps a rumble of thunder too, then it's onto a beautiful Fall weekend.

2017 Blue Ridge Parkway Calendars began shipping late last week and have been delivered to many stores across the region (with more on the way). At $13.95, you'll find no better source for great photography and information about the Blue Ridge Parkway. This year's calendar features a chronology of the history of the Blue Ridge Parkway. With bonus calendar pages for November and December 2016, you can use it soon. You're going to love 'em.

Forecast Discussion

The cold front responsible for bringing much needed rainfall is working over the mountains this morning and stalls just to our east this afternoon. That's close enough to spark a few more showers later today, but the emphasis for us is this morning, then over the foothills this afternoon.

A sprawling upper level low drops south from the Great Lakes today to the Ohio Valley Wednesday. It spins around for a few days before lifting back north this weekend. The upper low will impact us in a couple of ways. First it brings a return of showers to the area, isolated in nature Wednesday afternoon, then scattered coverage Thursday. Second, much cooler air accompanies the upper low with high temperatures falling to seasonably cool levels Thursday and Friday.

As the low departs we are left in a dry northwest flow beginning Friday. Daytime temperatures recover a bit thereafter with full sunshine and it's safe to say this is one of those "dreamy" October weekends.
