Partly Sunny With A Warming Trend
Skies are partly to mostly sunny today and Friday. We’re compelled to mention a stray pop-up afternoon shower both days, but most mountain locations will remain rain-free during this period. Temperatures will be on a noticeable warming trend headed into the weekend. We’re expecting an extended period with daily temperatures averaging 5-degrees or more above normal, along with a continuation of dry conditions.

Wedging high pressure has been in place over the past day or so, keeping temperatures suppressed and anchoring some low clouds, drizzle and fog along the Blue Ridge. Today, drier air is eroding this wedge, and will promote increasing sunshine along with a pleasant boost to temperatures.
The weather regime over the contiguous U.S. will be dominated by an “Omega Block” during the next week: This features deep and vertically-stacked low-pressure centers, one over the West and another off the East Coast, with sprawling high pressure in the middle.
We will be situated under the High Pressure portion of this block, promoting some fabulous weather over the coming week. Expect abundant sunshine for multiple days, along with warm temperatures to herald the month of October.
