Forecast Last Updated at Monday, September 24, 2018 at 4:13PM

Cloudier/Cooler Start To The Week

Skies will be cloudy tonight and there will be some spotty drizzle or light rain, most prominent in southern/eastern sections closer to the Blue Ridge. Mostly cloudy skies continue on Tuesday, and perhaps a shower, although we’re not expecting significant rainfall until later Wednesday into Thursday. We’re hoping we can clear things out for a generally dry weekend coming up.

The 2019 Blue Ridge Parkway Calendar is in stock featuring winners from our yearly photo contest. Get your at RaysMarketplace.Com, or from one of the many local retailers. This year's feature is Waterfalls along the Parkway. Enjoy!

Forecast Discussion

High pressure nosing down the eastern slopes of the mountains and Foothills will promote a wedge of cooler and more moist air through tonight. This will promote overcast skies and maybe some spotty light rain or drizzle --- We’re not expecting much in the way of rainfall at all. You will notice the difference in temperatures, however.

The wedge will slowly begin to release on Tuesday, but we still expect mostly cloudy skies and perhaps a passing light shower.

A cold front will approach the region by late Wednesday, providing our best shot at more significant rainfall later Wednesday through Thursday.

We’re anticipating a cleaner frontal passage by Friday, which will hopefully set us up for a dry and pleasant weekend across western North Carolina. We'll be monitoring the progress of that front to see if that becomes a reality.
