Some Clouds, But Still Pleasant

Pleasant temperatures continue tonight with partly cloudy skies. The weather conditions Friday still look nice, although there will be some extra clouds around due to an easterly wind flow into the mountains. A stray shower will be around later Friday afternoon, but the chance makes it almost too small to mention. More widely-scattered activity will be present for the upcoming weekend. Still, we expect many more dry hours than wet ones. Temperatures stay quite seasonable for the next several days.

Finally! We have winners! It took a few days longer than expected to receive and inspect the finalists in the 2016 Blue Ridge Parkway Photo Contest, but the difficult task of selecting winners is complete. Many other photos will be used in the 2016 Calendar as sidebars and around the calendar. Only the Cover and Monthly winners are decided at this point. We give our sincere thanks to the dozens of photographers who submitted their work (486 photos in all) and to everyone who voted (21,090 votes).

Forecast Discussion

The atmosphere is in the process of moistening, although this process is a slow one. A stationary front is situated along the Carolina coast. The low level wind flow has turned easterly, and this will bring some of the juicier air that is located along coastal sections back to the west by the time we get to the weekend.

As far as sensible weather effects go, this “juicing-up” of our air mass will result in more clouds over the next few days, and there will be slowly-increasing chances for showers and thundershowers as we move into the upcoming weekend. We will also have an upper level trough of low-pressure developing over the mid-Mississippi Valley area that will also provoke more afternoon shower and thundershower activity by Saturday and Sunday.

Temperatures through the period will run just a bit warmer than normal, but still rather typical for the last weekend of August.

Tropical Storm Erika continues to churn westward, and will be passing over Puerto Rico tonight. What happens next will create some increasing drama for the Southeast Coast as we get into early next week.
