Can We Swap Hump-Day for Saturday?

Wednesday is the nicest weather day this week and the nicest day in the last two weeks. Work...hmmm. Can I work Saturday instead?
Thursday is nice as well but with more afternoon clouds and the ever-so-slight chance of an afternoon shower. A front scheduled for Friday looks slower, now passing through Friday night. A shower is possible Friday afternoon, but showers are more likely Friday night. The work swap for Saturday would be nice since Saturday now looks cloudy, cool, and showery as yet another upper-level low develops in the Southeast.

2016 Blue Ridge Parkway Calendars arrive this week. Shipping begins October 12. Order yours today at the special pre-publication price of $12. We're all pumped about a brand new look and tons more photography. See RaysMarketplace.Com for details.

Forecast Discussion

High pressure controls our weather today and Thursday. Enjoy two very nice days. We have just the slightest chance of a passing shower Thursday afternoon as the flow turns more southerly and moist. Enjoy our nice break from the rain!

The next front looks slower with every run of computer guidance, held up by a developing upper-level low over South Carolina Saturday. This weekend will NOT be a repeat of last weekend; however... A shower is possible Friday afternoon. Then showers are a good bet Friday night and Saturday. Temperatures will be much cooler Saturday as a shower-chilled wedge developed. Clouds linger into Sunday, but we are hopeful for some sun by Sunday afternoon.

The daytime Monday will be mostly sunny and pleasant. But a moisture-starved front passes through from the northwest late Monday night. A brief shower is possible with the frontal passage. Tuesday has morning clouds but then decreasing clouds. Temperatures will be somewhat cooler Tuesday.
