Looking Good This Weekend

The long awaited holiday weekend is almost here and it's going to be a good one! Saturday is the pick of the litter with lots of sunshine and no chance for rain. We still have our eyes on a developing area of low pressure between Bermuda and Bahamas that may become a tropical depression/storm Saturday as it nears the South Carolina coast. Our battle plan has not changed with the idea that we will experience minimal impacts from this system early next week. Sunday and Monday will feature more clouds and isolated afternoon or evening thundershowers. At this point nothing warrants changing your outdoor plans, enjoy!

RelayWithRay.Com concludes along the Virginia segment of the Blue Ridge Parkway today and crosses into North Carolina! You can follow Ray’s daily blog posts at

Forecast Discussion

Only if... only if there wasn't a tropical system to deal with in the coming days the forecast wouldn't have any kinks for about the next week. First off, the takeaway isn't for any organized rainfall until next Thursday. Daily shower and thundershower development have a summer-flavor, isolated in nature, and ending after the sun goes down.

An area of low pressure is developing between Bermuda and Bahamas gaining some steam as it heads northwest. Coastal areas in the Carolinas and up to Virginia will be a mess Sunday and Monday as the storm basically hovers just inland and creeps northwards. However, we have more confidence the repercussions for the mountains are not significant. That being said- it's a close call. Clouds increase late Saturday and we'll get into the "more clouds than sun" regime Sunday and Monday with isolated afternoon/evening showers and thundershowers.

That story basically continues until a front approaches from the west Thursday bringing our best chance for more widespread rainfall. Temperatures will run slightly higher than average during this time (muggy too). Welcome to summer!
