Forecast Last Updated at Monday, June 27, 2016 at 6:22PM

Needed Rainfall

Scattered to numerous showers and storms will continue through sunset. There will be less activity after sunset, though a shower or t-shower is possible through the night ahead of an advancing cold front. After tomorrow morning, rain chances diminish rapidly for the remainder of the workweek. Perhaps our next better opportunity for some rain will come over the 4th of July holiday weekend. Temperatures this week won’t be quite as a hot as last week.

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 cold front is headed our way, and won’t fully pass south/east of the local area until Tuesday night. While most of what we get will be prior to midnight Monday night, we’ll hold onto a chance for showers on Tuesday until the front settles to our south. While many locations across the southwest NC mountains had heavy rain Monday afternoon, including the Asheville airport with nearly an inch, more folks than not only saw light amounts, at least through the evening update period here at Ray's.

High pressure will build into the mountains for the Wednesday through Friday timeframe. While the chance for a pop-up PM shower or thundershower is not zero, it’s not worth mentioning in the forecast at this time. Temperatures will be fairly typical for the end of June/beginning of July.

By Independence Day weekend, we’ll be following the progress of the next cold front that is scheduled to settle into the Carolinas toward Sunday and Monday. As the front nears, so does our potential for more showers and thunderstorms.
