Downhill Slide

The pleasant (albeit cool) weather of the last few days faded into the clouds and showers today. Light rain steadily increases in coverage and intensity tonight. Friday looks like a washout--clouds, fog, rain. Rain may be heavy at times Friday morning. While the weekend looks less dire than Friday, clouds with some rain remain in play.

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

Remember the record cool/damp weather two weeks ago? It is upon us again.

A front is draped along the Southeastern Atlantic and Gulf Coasts. Disturbances will ride along that front for the next few days, even forcing it a bit farther west and north. Meanwhile, high pressure centered to our northeast will keep a cool wedge of air down the Appalachians.

The result for the next two days will be... Rain showers continuing tonight with fog developing and hanging tough along the Blue Ridge all the way into Sunday morning. Areas of heavy rain Friday morning tapering off in the afternoon/evening. Scattered light rain Saturday. Temperatures remain cooler than normal, but Friday will be ridiculously cool for the first day of August.

Sunday through Wednesday, we break out of the cool/clouds and gradually evolve into a more summer-like Bermuda High look to the weather map. Scattered mostly afternoon thundershowers will be in the area Sunday. Monday through Wednesday, temperatures gradually climb, and thundershower coverage drops to barely worth mentioning.
