One More Good Weather Day

Today's weather was like when you are driving down a long isolated stretch of highway and you see a gas station. You are not in desperate need of gas but you are not sure when you'll see another gas station so you stop to fill up just in case.

Hope you filled up on the weather today as it turns ugly overnight tonight and tomorrow. Rain and clouds move in after midnight tonight and will hang around through early Tuesday morning. It will turn windy and colder through the day on Tuesday. Tuesday will be one of those days where the warmest temperatures occur early in the day.

Wednesday will be a cold blustery day but it starts to warm up a bit after that.

The windy and colder weather should put you in the mood for our RaysWeather.Com Fearless Forecast for Winter 2017-2018 Enjoy.

The 2018 Blue Ridge Parkway Calendar is packed with great photography from the RaysWeather.Com Photo Contest. It has climate information for the entire Parkway and includes pages for November/December 2017 so it can be used soon. Get yours at RaysMarketplace.Com or at many retails across the region.

Forecast Discussion

High pressure gave us one more good day. Rain moves in after midnight tonight ahead of a cold front and developing low pressure over the southeast. Periods of rain with heavy rain will continue through Monday and there could be a thunderstorm Monday evening.

Any leftover showers will end early Tuesday morning as the cold front moves through. Gusty winds will kick up from the northwest and bring in colder air. Tuesday's highs will be early in the day. An upper level disturbance will move over the southern Appalachians Wednesday and this could cause some snow flurries/showers at the highest elevations.

High pressure builds in from the south Thursday and Friday and that will allow for a quick warm up and some nice weather. Another cold front approaches us from the west next weekend and it looks like rain ahead of it and much colder air behind it.
