Unsettled Week, Great Weekend

A weak surface front over the mountains is helping to trigger scattered showers and thunderstorms this evening. Some big storms are possible, especially east of here. Quite a bit of shower activity is expected Thursday and Thursday night, along with a few thundershowers. Areas northeast of Roanoke will see heavy rain. Conditions gradually improve on Friday and the weekend still looks delightful… dry, seasonably cool with some passing clouds.

2017 Blue Ridge Parkway Calendars began shipping late last week and have been delivered to many stores across the region (with more on the way). At $13.95, you'll find no better source for great photography and information about the Blue Ridge Parkway. This year's calendar features a chronology of the history of the Blue Ridge Parkway. With bonus calendar pages for November and December 2016, you can use it soon. You're going to love 'em.

Forecast Discussion

A weak cold front will remain in the vicinity of the mountains tonight. Good wind shear and instability will is helping to brew up some strong storms this evening. Though the biggest storms have been forming just a little east of here. Still, don't be surprised to hear a couple severe thunderstorm warnings interrupt your radio programming for the rest of your evening. The activity winds down towards midnight.

A big upper low will drop just to our west on Thursday. The low will pump large volumes of moisture across the Mid-Atlantic states where flooding rain is expected. Down across SWVA, we will be right on the border of heavier rain and more showery, lighter precipitation. Right now, it appears that areas northeast of Roanoke are the most under the gun Thursday and Thursday night. Still, I think it will be showery enough to keep us in the two golf ball category.

The low weakens on Friday and drifts a little farther away. The weather should still be showery, especially early on, but conditions will improve later in the day.

The weekend still looks great. We may have a good “cumulus field” in the afternoon on Saturday. That’s to say, you can find animal shapes in the clouds with the kids. But for the most part it will be a seasonably cool couple of days and very pleasant.

The Tropical Atlantic is about to spawn the next named storm, Matthew. Matthew will strengthen into a potent hurricane as it reaches the Eastern Caribbean and be south Haiti and Cuba by early next week. We'll wait and see what happens from there.
