Forecast Last Updated at Friday, July 25, 2014 at 1:45PM

Some Gray but Not Bad

The weather is similar to turning 50: "Some Gray but Not Bad". Thursday's front is well to our south; however, lingering moisture and a southeasterly flow will be pests today. Friday is generally nice with the exception of a fair amount of cloud cover. Tonight areas of patchy fog will redevelop and stick around through early Saturday morning. Saturday will have more sun and warmer temperatures after early fog. Warming temperatures will be a continuing theme Sunday. The next threat for significant rain comes late Sunday and Sunday night.

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 "THIS WEEK!" for Android (probably "NEXT 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 Henderson NC and everything in between.

Forecast Discussion

Thursday's front is to our south across South Carolina, Georgia to west to Northern Louisiana. But it was not a "clean sweep" of moisture as patchy morning fog attests to. We'll have a southeasterly flow for a while today keeping clouds and seasonably cool temperatures especially along the Blue Ridge. Even a stray shower is possible (so slight an issue that we left it out of the forecast box).

The front returns north Saturday as a warm front. Saturday will have more sun and warmer temperatures. That warming trend continues into Sunday.

Sunday has enough dry hours to earn a 4 Golfball rating; however, storms developing in the Ohio Valley Sunday afternoon will move southeast and could impact our weather late Sunday afternoon and Sunday night. A few spots between late Sunday afternoon and early Monday morning could be noisy and windy with brief heavy downpours.

The next front from the west moves through Monday with widely scattered showers and storms ending by sunset.

Much cooler air arrives behind Monday's front leading to a third round of unseasonably cool weather for July. July 4-5, 15-19, and now the end of the month will be three memorable cool-downs in July. Tuesday and Wednesday will be dry and seasonably cool. Unfortunately, we'll transition into a wedgy, gray, damp, cool pattern Thursday through much of next weekend.
