Cooler Air & A Few Clouds; Rain Ends After Dark

Cooler air has arrived behind a weak cold front that moved through the High Country earlier today. We're not expecting anymore showers tonight as there will be some clearing with mostly cloudy skies but showers will slowly end from west to east by 9pm. Wednesday we keep mostly cloudy skies, but only an ever-so-slight chance of a stray shower. Thursday will have more sun and pleasant temperatures.

The newest version of the RaysWeather.com app is now available for Android phones. The new iPhone/iPad version was submitted to Apple for approval last week. The update includes all NWS alerts, a refresh button, SplashScreen, and better choices for font sizes. If you are one of the poor weather info deprived folks who don't have the app, here are the links... iTunes Apps for iPhone and iPad and Google Play Store for Android.

Forecast Discussion

A front moves across the region from the west today with cooler air lagging behind the surface front. We have partly to mostly cloudy skies and look for isolated showers to end from west to east just after dark. Cooler air arrives tonight.

Wednesday, a disturbance moves east along the front to our south. It keeps clouds around and a stray shower cannot be completely ruled out especially from Avery County NC and points south.

Thursday is a "tweener"--scattered clouds with pleasant temperatures. However, Thursday night into Friday, high pressure centered in New England wedges down the Appalachians. In the moist southeasterly flow, clouds increase late Thursday. Fog will be possible especially along the eastern escarpment Thursday night into Friday. Friday starts with areas of fog. Drizzle is possible Friday morning and a daytime shower cannot be ruled out.

The weekend looks great after early fog mixed out Saturday morning--otherwise scattered clouds and pleasant temperatures with high pressure in control in the Southeast.

The next front arrives Monday with showers. Those showers may arrive Sunday night. Cooler weather is expected after the front Monday night.
