Forecast Last Updated at Sunday, July 5, 2020 at 4:11PM

Warm, Humid, Showers

Widely scattered showers and thundershowers will continue through sunset with the greatest concentration of storms around Wytheville and westward.

We back off rain chances ever so slightly to begin the week but by Wednesday widely scattered showers and thundershowers are back in the forecast. Unfortunately I am not seeing much change with regards to humidity in the next week or so.

It's That Time!
RaysWeather.Com has sponsored a photo contest and a calendar featuring photos from our forecast region for the past 15 years. The 2021 Blue Ridge Calendar Photo Contest will change the rules from the previous 6 years allowing photos from ANYWHERE across the Southern Appalachians in Western North Carolina or Southwest Virginia. A portion of calendars sales will be donated to the Blue Ridge Conservancy. The photo contest is open for submissions until July 6, 2020.
Come on. Hit us with your best shot! Click here to submit photos.

Forecast Discussion

A subtle boundary in the area allowed for greater shower and thundershower coverage today. We back off the chances ever so slightly Monday and Tuesday, as the aforementioned boundary fades. We will primarily rely on diurnal heating and upslope flow for precipitation chances to start the week.

Low pressure then begins to develop along a stationary front over the deep south, pushing east from Georgia into South Carolina. This will yield precipitation chances most days mid to late week. Unfortunately I do not see any end to the humidity we have been seeing recently. Temperatures will be near to slightly above average throughout the period.
