Cool Today; Weekend Breakout

Cloudiness and cool conditions will be with us for one more day before breakout warmth arrives for Saturday afternoon. Mother’s Day is looking better and better with a good deal of sunshine and very warm temperatures for Mom. Springtime weather looks here to stay next week, with mostly dry and warm conditions through midweek.

RelayWithRay.Com It's the craziest thing I have ever seriously considered doing... Beginning May 17, I'm running the Blue Ridge Parkway. See RelayWithRay.Com for details.

Many thanks to everyone who submitted photos in the 2017 Blue Ridge Parkway Calendar Photo Contest. It was an amazing set to choose from. And the winners are... .

Forecast Discussion

The upper level low-pressure system that has been affecting our weather is spinning along the Mid-Atlantic coast today. It will keep clouds around and maybe a light shower before clearing gets going later today and tonight.

High pressure builds in on Saturday, promoting some mighty fine weather and a noticeable warm-up. A weak front will sag down from the north on Sunday, but right now, we’re not finding a good reason to mention any rain on Mother’s Day. It will be nice and warm for Mom with plenty of sunshine.

The weather map next week looks very springlike, with NC remaining in a warm sector air mass through midweek. We’ll have some widely-separated PM showers and thunderstorms around Tuesday and Wednesday, although many spots will stay dry.

A weak front could give us an uptick in shower and thunderstorm activity by Thursday.
