Forecast Last Updated at Friday, May 27, 2016 at 5:31PM

Less Turbulent Evening; Nice Saturday

Most of the showers and storms from this afternoon have moved into east TN, however, we may see a stray thundershower through the early evening, clearing after dark. Saturday looks like the best day if you have outside activities that require zero chance of rain. After that, shower and t-shower chances pick up for Sunday and Monday, but only marginally. It’s looking mainly dry, especially for Memorial Day, as the tropical system is expected to hug the coast. Isolated t-showers and warm weather thereafter into mid-week.

RelayWithRay.Com concludes along the Virginia segment of the Blue Ridge Parkway today and crosses into North Carolina! You can follow Ray’s daily blog posts at relaywithray.com/blog/

Forecast Discussion

Today's showers and storms have exited to the northwest leaving us with partly cloudy skies tonight. Dry air on the periphery of an incoming tropical system will help stifle showers and storms on Saturday, giving us a dry day, though high clouds will increase from the east.

By Sunday the tropical or subtropical system is expected to stall near the SC coast, then turn to the NE, paralleling the NC coast on Monday. This kid of track generally is a dry one for the mountains. Certainly clouds and a few showers will be around on Sunday, but activity should be limited. And on Monday we’ll have mainly dry and warm weather. We’ll keep “cannot rule out” wording, but nothing more. The same holds true for Tuesday with a gradual increase in shower chances by later in the week.

The tropical system developing along the southeast coast will be investigated by Hurricane Hunter aircraft today. If this system is named, it will called “Bonnie”. Also, while confidence is good in this forecast, there are still a couple computer models that want to bring the low farther inland and stall it out closer to the mountains. That would be a real mess for us. Chances of this are low, but they aren’t zero.
