Forecast Last Updated at Thursday, July 28, 2016 at 7:01PM

Unsettled Evening

Tonight will prove to be rather active with scattered showers and thunderstorms that will linger into early Friday morning. Locally heavy downpours are a good bet overnight. Friday, we're left with a slightly more stable airmass, still warm, but not as moist so thunderstorm coverage will come down a notch. The weekend has the same attitude of the last few days, scattered afternoon and early evening showers and storms.

The Golf-O-Meter has temporarily become the Fest-O-Meter. RaysWeather.Com is the weather forecast partner of FloydFest, rated one of the best music festivals in the country. Floydfest is happening now through Sunday (July 27-31), just south of Floyd, VA. For festival details see FloydFest.Com.

Forecast Discussion

A diffuse frontal boundary remains draped over the Mid Atlantic and Ohio Valley now through the weekend. Tropical moisture resides south of the front across the Virginias and the Carolinas. It will bring with it a good slug of showers and thunderstorms through the overnight hours.

Behind the departing low humidity levels come down Friday. There could be a lingering shower in the morning, but we're more optimistic the afternoon hours are not as wet as today. Residual cloud cover will help to keep temperatures a few notches lower.

The weekend is similar to what we've been seeing the last few days. Patchy morning fog giving way to a few good hours of sunshine followed by scattered PM showers and thunderstorms, fizzling out in the evening.

On deck next week- maybe, just maybe, we get a front to penetrate southwards into the Carolinas Tuesday or Wednesday. The glass being half full allows for lesser coverage of afternoon showers and storms, widely scattered Monday, isolated Tuesday and Wednesday.
