Forecast Last Updated at Friday, May 25, 2018 at 7:51PM

Tropical Stew Knocking

I want to make this forecast as upbeat as possible, but tomorrow begins a near week-long stretch that includes a daily dose of showers and thundershowers. The culprit is Subtropical Storm Alberto" in the Gulf. This evening has widely scattered coverage of showers as we start to dip our toes in the water. Tomorrow and Sunday are wetter, but Saturday is likely the wetter of the two. Most of the action is limited to the afternoon and evening hours so be sure to include a backup plan for outdoor activities or get them done early.

Here are the Winners of the 2019 Blue Ridge Parkway Photo Contest. We received 720 photos and over 16,000 votes. The cover winner was Johnny Davidson.. A rime ice scene from the top of Craggy Pinnacle. Congratulations to all the monthly winners. We will soon choose another 40 or so photos to be included in cameo roles. Thanks to everyone who participated in the contest.

Forecast Discussion

A moist southerly flow returned to the region today providing the ingredient for more showery activity. The turn to wetter is gradual in a sense, this evening has widely scattered showers and thundershowers so not everyone sees the rain.

Memorial Day weekend is a wet one, mainly in the afternoons, as the Gulf opens up for business. Subtropical Storm Alberto located near the Yucatan Peninsula slowly moves north making landfall near the AL/LA coast Monday morning. Even though we're far removed from the storm the moisture fetch is equally far reaching. The storm moves north to the TN Valley by the middle of the week and turns northeast through the Ohio Valley and PA Thursday and Friday.

Somewhere in the mix next week I bet there's a few days that are drier than others but it's impossible to conclude which days at this time. In the near term Saturday through Monday, count on scattered afternoon showers and thundershowers with plenty of dry hours in the morning.
