June 1st is

Land Trust Day

at Mast Store

All of us benefit from the work 

of our local land trusts

from enjoying a hike on a trail,

taking a sip of clean water,

watching a herd of deer cross

an open field, or keeping a

family farm in the family.


On June 1, all Mast Store

locations will be hosting a local

land trust to share info on 

their work. At the end of the

day, Mast Store will donate

20% of the day's sales

to support conservation.

Plenty of Sun and Heat

The next scheduled rain opportunity isn't until late this week. Between now and then each day looks and feels about the same with afternoon cloud build-ups and plenty of heat. In essence however, it's generally great weather to be outside if you don't mind the heat and there won't be any interruptions to outdoor festivities. Enjoy!

The 2020 Blue Ridge Parkway Calendar Photo Contest is underway. Come on... "hit us with your best shot" from America's Scenic Parkway!

Forecast Discussion

If you look at the trail of severe weather reports from Saturday it arches from southwest Texas through the Midwest and up to New York State. There's not much south of that line except into northern Virginia. That simple observation signifies the periphery of an upper level heat ridge which is producing a bona fide heat wave over the Deep South and Southeast. It also denotes the location of a stationary boundary along the northern fringe of the ridge indicating where most of the nation's storminess is located.

The upper ridge blocks frontal passages and does not begin to breakdown until Wednesday. So between now and then it's excessively warm and dry. Fortunately it's not oppressively humid so the heat doesn't feel as bad as it could.

A front approaches Thursday and moves through Friday introducing isolated thundershowers both days. Hopefully we can up the ante in the shower department, but as it stands now there's not a lot of maritime air in place ahead of the front which would aid in better coverage. It will at least cooldown for a couple of days behind the frontal passage.
