Coolness Continues

Tonight features mostly clear skies and temperatures that are certainly closer to seasonable norms than last night. We reach more seasonable norms Thursday as the temperatures and humidity begin to creep up. Our typical "summer-time" pattern returns by the weekend. This results in daily doses of PM shower-thundershower activity, as well as making it "feel" more like summer heat/humidity-wise. Coverage of afternoon/evening showers & t-storms diminishes some beginning Monday, the heat stays with us.

We are finishing work on the 2018 Blue Ridge Parkway Calendar and hope to have it to the printer by early July with calendars available mid/late July. However like the last couple years, many photos, 50-60, from the Parkway will appear in the calendar. Click here for the winning photos.

Forecast Discussion

High pressure overhead provides another night of clear to mostly clear skies with temperatures that are comfy for late June standards. The high moves off the Southeast and Mid-Atlantic coast Thursday and begins to modify, resulting in a return of more seasonal temperatures. A predominately southerly flow is established bringing in more moisture and giving us a "cannot rule out" mention of PM showers or t-showers Thursday.

Our typical "summer-time" synoptic pattern is reestablished by the weekend as the western extension of the Bermuda high is set up off the Southeast and Mid-Atlantic coasts. The temperatures creep up and the moisture increases thanks to the southerly flow coming out of the Gulf of Mexico. Coverage of showers and storms increases Friday to more widely scattered during the afternoon and evening.

A frontal system swings through the Great Lakes into the Ohio Valley Saturday, which allows for widely scattered coverage of PM showers and thunderstorms. The front doesn't quite make it to our neck of the woods as our high pressure forces it to stall to our north. This keeps widely scattered coverage of PM showers and storms in place Sunday.

The quasi-stationary frontal boundary holds to our north Monday, keeping the greatest coverage of shower/storm activity along the Great Lakes and Northeast. We'll keep more isolated coverage around western Virginia. That holds through Tuesday as well. I hope you are ready for it to "feel" like summer again!
