Forecast Discussion

A semi-stationary frontal zone runs west-to-east across Kentucky, West Virginia and Virginia and will be the primary weather maker for the Carolinas and Virginia today and really right on through the holiday weekend. Showers and thunderstorms are likely today, and we will continue to have good coverage for Independence Day and Sunday.

The weekend won’t be a washout, but be prepared for a few rainy interruptions, and seek shelter if you’re outside with a thunderstorm in close proximity. Temperatures through the period will continue to run a few degrees below normal during the daytime with more clouds and showers around.

Next week looks rather typical for July. The Bermuda High will attempt to get re-established, and that will promote more sunshine, warmer weather with more hit-or-miss afternoon thunderstorms.
