Forecast Last Updated at Tuesday, May 24, 2016 at 12:30PM

All Systems Go For Launch

We’re about to be catapulted into an early summer weather pattern around western North Carolina, and it starts this afternoon after a cool start to the day. Skies are sunny and bright. Expect more of the same through Thursday, and temperatures will surge to above-normal levels. There will be adequate moisture/humidity levels by Thursday afternoon for isolated afternoon thundershowers. We expect the same basic weather pattern through the Memorial Day weekend.

RelayWithRay.Com continues along the Virginia portion of the Blue Ridge Parkway. You can follow Ray’s daily blog posts at relaywithray.com/blog/.

Forecast Discussion

An upper low over southern New England will be ejecting to the northeast today, leaving a sprawling area of high pressure in its wake. It will promote bright sunshine with a warming atmosphere.

Early summerlike warmth will be with us for the remainder of the forecast period. It will be dry through at least midweek. After midweek, high pressure will assume a “Bermuda High” orientation, pumping-in more moisture and adding to our daytime/afternoon instability.

Starting Thursday afternoon and lasting through Memorial Day, there will be a small, daily risk of an afternoon shower or thunderstorm.

Notes and asides: The official start to the Atlantic hurricane season is June 1. Coincidentally, the weather forecast models are suggesting that we might have our first tropical depression or storm off the Southeast coast of the United States sometime around Memorial Day. The last time we had a tropical storm over Memorial Day weekend was Beryl in 2012.
