Unsettled Today-Friday; Scattered Action For The 4th

Showers and thunderstorms are around today, with the usual emphasis on the afternoon and evening hours. Friday will be much the same, with good coverage of PM showers and thunderstorms expected once again. The holiday weekend is looking quite typical for early July. We expect mixed skies with scattered afternoon thunderstorms to dodge both for Independence Day and Sunday.

A New Station... We've introduced a new weather station, the FloydFest Weather Station just south of Floyd, VA. Many thanks go to the good folks at FloydFest for making this possible. And we are looking forward to a great Music festival July 22-26.

Forecast Discussion

On the weather map, a weak frontal boundary that will extend west-to-east across Kentucky, West Virginia and Virginia will become a staple in our weather pattern over the next few days, as it oscillates nearby just to our north through the holiday weekend.

As a result of the front and some contributing upper level energy, we will see the best coverage of showers and thunderstorms around western North Carolina today and Friday. For Saturday and Sunday, activity will be more scattered in nature, and mostly relegated to the afternoon and evening hours. Don’t cancel any plans this weekend, but keep that’s Ray’s Weather mobile app handy to circumnavigate the showers and thunderstorms that will be roaming around.

Temperatures today and Friday will be limited by cloud cover and showers. For the Fourth and Sunday, there will be a bit more sunshine, allowing temperatures to moderate slowly, but still running just below normal. By early next week, the pattern takes on more of a Bermuda High look and feel, so that means typical July weather: A good deal of sunshine with those hit-or-miss PM thunderstorms.
