Breezy and Cooler

The big cold front has passed and now all the fun weather we have left is gusty wind and a "maybe" stray evening shower. Temperatures will be cooler tonight with breezy conditions. Tuesday and Wednesday will be pleasant (cooler than seasonal norms). Enjoy the first half of the week because "grayer" weather develops Thursday lasting through the rest of this week.

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 Henderson NC and everything in between.

Forecast Discussion

The cold front everyone has been talking about passed over the Appalachians around lunchtime today. Now the front sits well to our south and east giving the folks at the beach the "fun" weather we had last night! There is a bit of wrap-around moisture moving in from the Ohio valley (which is normal after a decent cold front, following the spin of the system) that could make an isolated, passing shower possible. Temperatures tonight are a step cooler than Sunday.

Tuesday and Wednesday, high pressure slides into the Eastern US as today's front moves down the Atlantic and to the Gulf Coast. Temperatures will be seasonably cool.

The front will remain to our south through the rest of the week with disturbances moving west along the front. High pressure will be centered in New England. Moisture from the south will overrun cool air at the surface. It will not be as dramatic as the "gray event" 10 days ago, but it will be reminiscent. Clouds increase Thursday with showers mostly in the afternoon. Friday and Saturday will be cloudy, seasonably cool with periods of rain and patchy fog. The muck will relent Sunday with somewhat warmer temperatures and only isolated showers (still some morning fog).
