Another Red Letter Day

If the thought of "I should spend sometime outside today" hasn't crossed your mind, you probably should make plans to do so. The temperature is on the warmer side with ample sunshine. Tomorrow has a similar outlook, with the exception that clouds will be returning to our area during the afternoon hours. You should enjoy these days while you can. Starting Friday, showers and thundershowers make a return to the forecast, and they look to stick around into the beginning of next week.

It's Calendar time again! Through August 26, we are selling the 2019 Blue Ridge Parkway Calendar at the pre-publication price of $12. Order yours now at RaysMarketplace.Com. We will begin shipping them August 27 and they will begin appearing in stores around the same date.

The calendar contains over 50 photos from the Blue Ridge Parkway Photo Contest. But it includes much more--climate data, a Blue Ridge Parkway map detailing popular waterfalls, and even November/December 2018 calendar pages so you can begin using it soon.

Forecast Discussion

High pressure over Mid-Atlantic is still the prevailing factor of our weather for the next couple of days. It will remain in effect around Thursday evening. Around the same time, a low pressure system, coupled with a cold front, marches East and will push the high pressure out to the Atlantic. This low will stay North of us, as will the cold front, for the time being. However, we will still feel the effects of said front as our forecast changes from that of sunny and clear skies to afternoon showers and thundershowers beginning Friday and into the weekend.

Looking ahead to the weekend, the aforementioned front will stall over Virginia and slowly wash out. However, it doesn't change the outlook of afternoon showers and thundershowers for Saturday and Sunday. The start of next week looks to continue with afternoon showers and thundershowers as another low pressure system builds near the Great Lakes, dragging another cold front near our region.
