Dry Saturday

Showers and thunderstorms developed Friday afternoon and drifted eastward into the Foothills. Stray showers and thundershowers end this evening. Saturday looks like a dry day, with widely-separated PM showers and thunderstorms on Sunday. Looking ahead, it looks increasingly hot toward midweek.

Photo Contest
We received 1045 photos in the 2021 Blue Ridge Calendar Photo Contest. After making the tough choices in picking the 20 finalists in each season, our overwhelming takeaway was "We live in a beautiful place!" Thanks to all the photographers who shared their talents with us.
Voting is open until Friday July 17. Winners will be announced shortly thereafter. I forecast it will be difficult for you to pick just three photos in each season. See our voting page to make those tough choices.

Forecast Discussion

First off, a word about Tropical Storm Fay. Fay is located along the Jersey shore and will be moving into the greater New York City area tonight before weakening over interior New England on Saturday. It will have no impacts on local weather.

A front slips east of the area early on Saturday, and with some drier air immediately following the front, we anticipate a dry, sunny Saturday around the mountains with less humid conditions.

An upper level disturbance pushing into the Mid-Atlantic region on Sunday might spark a few hit-or-miss PM showers and thunderstorms on Sunday.

For next week, weak upper level troughing along the Eastern Seaboard will get replaced by a broad upper level ridge. That means mostly dry and increasingly hot conditions heading into Wednesday and Thursday. After all though, it is July.
