Not As Bad As It Looks

Can it really be this cool to start August? Proof was in the pudding, but it makes you wonder what payback is going to feel like. Fog will continue to be an issue especially along the eastern escarpment (aka, the Blue Ridge). About the only other thing to write home about are scattered light showers and drizzle overnight. The weekend features clouds, a slow temperature recovery (but still below seasonal norms), and widely scattered mostly afternoon showers (maybe a thundershower Sunday).

The RaysWeather.Com Mobile App... Get it for Android at the Google Play Store.
iPhone and iPad users... When I said "probably this week", I did not realize that the review process at Apple takes about a week. It's complete and submitted to iTunes, but we have to wait on Apple to bless it before it will be available.

We are pleased to announce a brand new addition to Ray's Weather today! is up and running thanks to our new media partner WHKP 1450 AM in Hendersonville.

Forecast Discussion

A stationary front stretches from the Carolina coastline west in to south Texas hugging the Gulf Coast along the way. Cool high pressure is banked on the eastern edge of the Appalachians. Disturbances are moving from south to north along the eastern seaboard closer to the stalled front.

The result is for better moisture transport focused in the Piedmont eastwards to the coast. Shower coverage continues to decrease heading into the late night hours. Patchy fog and drizzle will be all that remains.

Saturday, some brightening of the skies are possible. Scattered showers, and a maybe a few thundershowers are focused on the afternoon and evening hours.

Sunday and beyond...the wedge breaks down and "real" summertime warmth slowly returns. A weak front will be close-by in the middle of the week, but it is too early to say if it will make a pass this far south. That being said, there isn't much organization to shower and storm coverage, mainly the late afternoon and evening variety.
