Forecast Last Updated at Thursday, June 22, 2017 at 5:42PM
We're going to stay wet around the mountains this evening as the moisture channel connected to Tropical Depression Cindy streams northeastward into western North Carolina. Rainfall amounts should remain on the light side, however. Showers will remain in the forecast until early Saturday, followed by significant improvement over the weekend. Summer is here, but temperatures will remain seasonably comfortable for the foreseeable future.
We are finishing work on the 2018 Blue Ridge Parkway calendar and hope to have it to the printer by early July with calendars available mid/late July. However like the last couple years, many photos, 50-60, from the Parkway will appear in the calendar. Click here for the winning photos

Tropical Storm Cindy made landfall along the Gulf Coast near the LA/TX border this morning and subsequently weakened into a depression. A stream of tropical moisture progresses well northeast of the center, and will provide a wet evening around our region. Clouds and showers linger overnight and some thunder is not out of the question.
The low-pressure associated with Cindy will be moving to the northeast through the Tennessee Valley on Friday, reaching southwestern Virginia by Saturday morning. While we think that the steadiest rain will occur into tonight, scattered showers and thunderstorms will be with us until the low gets to our northeast by Saturday morning.
After the degraded Cindy circulation and a connected cold front swings through on Saturday, we’ve got some fantastic weather lined-up in the system’s wake. Sunday will be gorgeous with bright sunshine and pleasant temperatures.
By early to mid next week, high pressure will be unusually dominant for the month of June. Expect abundant sunshine and temperatures will be quite pleasant, actually averaging below normal for late-June. Humidity levels will also be very pleasant.
