Clouds Aplenty But Little Rainfall

Skies will be mostly cloudy with some spotty light rain and drizzle this afternoon for this first full day of autumn. Overcast skies, some Blue Ridge fog, along with areas of light rain and drizzle can be expected tonight through Monday along with noticeably cooler temperatures. For next week, cloudiness will prevail and our best shot for rainfall will be late Wednesday through Thursday.

The 2019 Blue Ridge Parkway Calendar is in stock featuring winners from our yearly photo contest. Get your at RaysMarketplace.Com, or from one of the many local retailers. This year's feature is Waterfalls along the Parkway. Enjoy!

Forecast Discussion

A front is settling southward through the state and will provide a cool, moist wedge across the Southern Appalachians as an upslope easterly wind flow develops. That means generally cloudy skies, some periodic light rain and drizzle with fog along the Blue Ridge.

The wedge will begin to break down on Tuesday, so it will be a little warmer. A cold front will approach from the west by late Wednesday, pushing through here on Thursday. This front will probably provide our best opportunity for more significant rainfall this week.

Finally, a third front comes through late Friday. With a bit of luck, it might just clear us out for next weekend and provide some overall nice weather conditions.
