Forecast Last Updated at Monday, July 27, 2015 at 7:13PM

Muggy Evening; T-Showers Diminishing Early

The warm and humid weather sticks with us through Thursday. Daytime heating in this muggy airmass promoted increased coverage of afternoon and evening showers and storms. It's difficult to distinguish between the days for areal coverage; however, this evening and Tuesday look wetter overall than Wednesday and Thursday. A front passing through Thursday evening may bring drier weather for the rest of the week.

It's time again to... "Hit us with your best shot!" The 2016 Blue Ridge Parkway Calendar Photo Contest is underway. Photo submissions will be accepted until July 29. See the 2016 Blue Ridge Parkway Calendar Photo Contest page for details and to submit photos.

Forecast Discussion

The next front from the west will not move through until late Thursday. A front stretches from the Ohio Valley to the Northern Plains (well to our north). The remnant of last week's front is in Florida.

In between, we are in a warm, humid, unstable airmass that will be productive for mostly PM showers and storms. Expect scattered coverage each afternoon, this evening through Thursday; however, Wednesday and Thursday may have less coverage and rain overall than today and Tuesday. Temperatures are warmer than average but not extreme.

The exact location of the front to our south and east Friday through the weekend is the subject of considerable uncertainty. Add to that uncertainty regarding the potential for low pressure forming in the Southeast along the front this weekend. For now, we have adopted a more optimistic tone for Friday and Saturday, counting on the front being far enough away to allow drier air into the Southern Appalachians. Our forecast then increases PM thundershower coverage Sunday with an increase in humidity, even if no significant low develops to our south/east.
