A Day of Remembrance
We have 1.8 million reasons to take pause and be thankful today--that's a rough estimate for the number of Americans who have died in service to our country during war time.
A frontal boundary passes through from the northwest today. We'll have lots of clouds with widely scattered afternoon and evening showers and thundershowers. A second front arrives late Wednesday. So, while we'll have lots of dry hours Tuesday and Wednesday, isolated PM thundershowers remain in the forecast. Temperatures are near seasonal norms all week.
Come on, hit us with your best shot...
It's time for the 2018 Blue Ridge Parkway Calendar Photo Contest! Through June 1, 2017, submit your best photos from the Blue Ridge Parkway to our Photo Contest. We will choose Finalists and Voting will be in early June.
While we love the iconic standard scenes, we particularly enjoy unique perspectives on the many often-seen views, new, rarely seen scenes, and modern twists on America's Most Scenic Parkway.

Two fronts move through from the northwest during the next 3 days: today for the first, the second late Wednesday. As a result, we can expect isolated to widely scattered afternoon and evening showers and thundershowers each day. Today and Wednesday will have more than Tuesday.
By Thursday, there will be one stationary front to our south. Hopefully far enough to our south to grant us a completely dry day.
Friday, that stationary front washes out allowing more moist air northward. Isolated (maybe slightly more) PM showers and thunderstorms return to the forecast.
Temperatures all week are very close to seasonal averages.
Next weekend, the next front from the north approaches and moves through. It looks like an unsettled weekend with widespread showers and storms messing with our weekend plans.
Late in the week and not a direct effect on our weather, but a tropical system in the Gulf is not out of the question off the Texas Coast. Bret would be the name. (There was an Arlene way out in the Atlantic in April.)
