Drying Out Overnight

We’ve been in a remarkably wet pattern as of late. However, a much-needed drying-out period is on the way. There will be a few lingering clouds to contend with this evening, before we culminate the workweek on a dry and warmer note. Expect skies to become mostly clear tonight. Memorial Day weekend weather looks pretty good. We will have to dodge a couple showers and thunderstorms, but there will be plenty of dry hours through the period for you to capitalize on those outside activities.

Come on, hit us with your best shot...
It's time for the 2018 Blue Ridge Parkway Calendar Photo Contest! Through June 1, 2017, submit your best photos from the Blue Ridge Parkway to our Photo Contest. We will choose Finalists and Voting will be in early June.
While we love the iconic standard scenes, we particularly enjoy unique perspectives on the many often-seen views, new, rarely seen scenes, and modern twists on America's Most Scenic Parkway.
Fire away!

Forecast Discussion

An unseasonably deep upper level low pressure system is moving into the Northeast overnight. The last remnants of this system across western NC are lingering clouds and a shower or two. Expect showers to end and clouds to begin clearing by dusk and the drying ensues.

A weak high pressure system builds into the area on Friday, allowing for a bright, sunny day with noticeably warmer temperatures.

Saturday through Memorial Day will be warm with a good deal of sunshine through the period. We kick-off the weekend with a semi-stationary front running from the Ohio Valley to the Mid-Atlantic coast. A few clusters of thunderstorms riding along the front could sneak into western North Carolina.

Finally, a cold front will pass through on Memorial Day with a couple showers and thundershowers. Despite that, the weather pattern that we’re going into is a considerably drier one.
