Forecast Last Updated at Monday, August 3, 2015 at 5:50PM
We had plenty of sunshine today and more on deck for Tuesday. We started a slight warming trend today, and Tuesday's high temperatures will be a degree or two warmer. A slight chance of thunderstorms enters the picture by Wednesday, and the coverage of showers and thunderstorms will be at a high point Thursday and Friday. Still, it’s going to be somewhat hit-or-miss in nature, and not everyone is going to get some badly-needed rainfall. The heat will peak during the first half of the week, slowly easing-off by this Friday and into next weekend.
RaysWeather.Com is now BACK in Tennessee... RedTailWeather.Com is now "live", with the station also included on BooneWeather.Com. Many thanks to the good folks at RedTail Mountain Resort for working with us to get back into NW Tennessee after a 2 year absence. And there's more to come there in a few months.
The photographers who contributed to the 2016 Blue Ridge Parkway Calendar are awesome! We agonized to get almost 600 submissions down to 25 or so finalists in each category. Vote to your hearts delight. Voting ends August 10, 2015. We need more months of the year to accommodate all the great submissions.

High pressure will hold on into midweek, promoting dry weather, plenty of sunshine, and rather hot afternoon temperatures.
A cold front will sag to the NC/VA border area by Tuesday night and Wednesday. Moisture and instability are not in great abundance to the south of this feature, but it will be enough to spark an isolated shower or thunderstorm by Wednesday afternoon.
As the front becomes draped west-to-east across North Carolina during Thursday and Friday, one or more ripples of low-pressure will move along the front. This will provide the week’s best opportunity for scattered rainfall before the front pushes to our south over the upcoming weekend.
While the front pushes just to our south, it will still be close enough to warrant a shower or thundershower mention next weekend.
