Back To Mostly Dry

After enhanced coverage of showers and thunderstorms Monday afternoon and evening, the weather turns mostly quiet again for the rest of the workweek. Expect a good deal of sunshine through Friday with tolerable temperatures that will be closer to normal for late June/early July. Isolated mostly PM showers and thundershowers will be around over the next few days, but will be more "miss" than "hit". Looking ahead to the all-important holiday weekend, an increase in showers and thunderstorms is expected, probably centered on Sunday.

Ray continues to blog periodically in the wake of Relay with Ray. Ray added a new blog Wednesday, an interview with Don Lister, the only other person to have run the Blue Ridge Parkway in consecutive days.

Forecast Discussion

A front moved south through the state Tuesday helping to dry things out and calm things down. Moving forward Wednesday through Friday expect plenty of sunshine each day. A shower or thundershower cannot be ruled out during the afternoon or evening, with the best chance of that occurring on Wednesday and Thursday PMs.

Independence Day weekend weather will at least start out pretty good. Saturday is probably the pick of the weekend, with ample sunshine and hit-or-miss PM thundershowers. By Sunday and Independence Day, a frontal system will be approaching from the north/west, so that a general uptick in shower and thunderstorm coverage can be expected coincident with this feature. Sunday could turn out to be the wettest/stormiest day of the three-day set.

The good news is, we really don’t foresee any overly hot weather during the week or for the Fourth.
