Forecast Last Updated at Thursday, July 2, 2015 at 5:32PM

Wet & Unsettled Until Saturday

With a frontal boundary hanging out just to our north, we'll see increased shower & thunderstorm activity this evening and Friday. Expect little or no sunshine until Saturday. The 4th of July Weekend will be classic 4th weather here... fireworks dodging scattered mostly afternoon and evening thundershowers. Temperatures through the weekend will be slightly below seasonal norms with a slight trend warmer.

A New Station... Wednesday, we introduced a new weather station, the FloydFest Weather Station just south of Floyd, VA. Many thanks go to the good folks at FloydFest for making this possible. And we are looking forward to a great Music festival July 22-26.

Forecast Discussion

A frontal boundary continues to meander south through Virginia tonight. It will stall tomorrow near the VA/NC border, and will gradually fade off the map this weekend.

With the frontal boundary so close we'll see an increase in both the coverage area and intensity of showers and storms both this evening and Friday. Sunshine prospects through Friday are virtually nil. Temperatures are just below seasonal norms, but the humidity will make it feel warmer.

As the front fades out this weekend, showers and thunderstorms will still be scattered around the region with emphasis on the afternoon and evening hours. Don’t cancel any plans this weekend, but keep that’s Ray’s Weather mobile app handy to circumnavigate the showers and thunderstorms that will be roaming around.

The next front will approach next Thursday. Daily details for thundershower coverage are difficult to pinpoint from 5-7 days out. However, we think there will be a slight lull in overall coverage Monday, then ramp gradually back up as the front approaches. Temperatures will return to seasonal averages (just a bit warmer than the holiday weekend).
