Pleasant Saturday

Skies will be generally sunny today with reduced humidity levels and slightly cooler temperatures. It should be a fine day to get outside and enjoy the weather. Sunday will be much the same, but we will have to entertain the threat for late-day and evening showers and thunderstorms. Much of next week will be dry, but it will feel like July should.

Photo Contest
We received 1045 photos in the 2021 Blue Ridge Calendar Photo Contest. After making the tough choices in picking the 20 finalists in each season, our overwhelming takeaway was "We live in a beautiful place!" Thanks to all the photographers who shared their talents with us.
Voting is open until Friday July 17. Winners will be announced shortly thereafter. I forecast it will be difficult for you to pick just three photos in each season. See our voting page to make those tough choices.

Forecast Discussion

A weak cold front has slipped east of the mountains, and drier air pushing in behind the front will provide some fine weather to kick off the weekend. Dewpoints are lower behind the front, and combine that with a northwesterly breeze, and it’s going to feel pretty good out there.

Most of Sunday won’t really be a whole lot different. After a refreshing start to the day with some wake-up temperatures in the 50s, it will be a mostly sunny daytime. We will be monitoring the progress of a seasonably strong upper-level disturbance that will pass through Sunday night. As a result, hit-or-miss showers and thunderstorms will push in fairly late in the day and into Sunday evening.

We will hold onto isolated thundershowers on Monday, then an upper level ridge of high pressure will build across the Southeast region, placing us solidly in a traditional mid-July weather pattern. That will feature very warm conditions with spotty PM thundershowers not returning again until Thursday and Friday afternoons.
