Exceptionally Nice

"Incredible" comes to mind describing the next couple of days. Dry high pressure is in control until Thursday with unseasonably cool conditions. We don't warm-up anytime soon, but our good luck with the weather turns to "good muck" Thursday night. Enjoy the next few days and get mentally prepared for a couch potato weekend.

By far, the most frequent question I have received in the last two years is: "When is RaysWeather going to get a mobile app?" The answer is "LAST WEEK!" for Android (probably "THIS WEEK" for iPhone).
It costs about the same as a plain coffee at a coffee shop, but for years to come, it will be your "Go To" weather source when you are "On the Go" in the Southern Appalachians. Current conditions, Forecasts, Webcams, Radars, and the Photo of the Day--it's all in there from Grayson County VA to Waynesville and Hendersonville NC and everything in between.

Forecast Discussion

Cool Canadian high pressure controls our weather behind yesterday's front which now resides along the coast. It is very smooth sailing until late Thursday with temperatures running close to 10 degrees below normal for the last few days of July.

Late Thursday, the aforementioned high becomes centered over New England with cool surface air wedging against the east side of the mountains. Moisture from the south will override the cool air. Clouds and rain showers develop by Thursday night putting a lid on temperatures and locking in the cool air.

Friday and Saturday will be rainy, cool, and foggy. The wedge eases up Sunday, still a lot of clouds, but somewhat warmer and not as damp. Monday into early next week we'll slowly transition into a more typical summer pattern.
