Forecast Last Updated at Thursday, April 28, 2016 at 5:58PM

Quieting Down

Widely-scattered thunderstorms developed Thursday afternoon along and east of the Blue Ridge. An additional strong storm remains possible into this evening. A cold front pushes through tonight, ending the parade of precipitation for a little while. Friday is much improved and the best looking day of the forecast. Enjoy! But clouds return this weekend with rain developing Saturday and continuing into Sunday.

Merlefest is here. Thursday afternoon through Sunday is wall-to-wall music. We're so excited, the Golf-O-Meter has become the Raccoon-O-Meter featuring "Flattop" the raccoon. Weather for the festival will be good overall through much of Saturday. This afternoon may have a stray thundershower. After a perfect Friday, clouds increase Saturday with showers possible late-day and Saturday night. Sunday has showers as well. See our MerleFest Hour-by-Hour Forecast for details.

Forecast Discussion

A quasi-stationary front remains stretched across Virginia this evening while another front approaches from the west. The squeeze play keeps us in the “ring of fire” as far as showers and thunderstorms are concerned. The threat for an addition thunderstorm continues into this evening. But the second front crosses the region tonight with dry air inbound. Friday is a terrific day with warm downslope northwesterly flow.

High pressure across the Northeast wedges down the mountains this weekend as moisture creeps upward ahead of a storm system scooting across the Midwest and Ohio Valley. Clouds increase Saturday with rain developing by afternoon. Expect rainy conditions to persist into Sunday. The good news is temperatures don’t look quite as cool as they have been.

A cold front moves through from the west Monday bringing the threat of a rogue daytime shower. Overall, Monday is a big improvement.

But Tuesday, low pressure develops off the coast along Monday’s front to bring another bout of rain. The low pulls away to the northeast with improving conditions Wednesday.
