Forecast Last Updated at Thursday, April 28, 2016 at 5:43PM

Simmering Down

Isolated thunderstorms developed along and east of the Blue Ridge Thursday afternoon. A cold front swings through tonight, sweeping away the threat of precipitation for a little while. Friday looks like a great day to get outside if you’re able. We’ve got a fifty-fifty weekend lined-up, with perhaps the first half of Saturday the best window for outside activities. A much-needed general rainfall is expected Saturday night and Sunday, and it will be a bit cooler this weekend.

Merlefest is here. Thursday afternoon through Sunday is wall-to-wall music. We're so excited, the Golf-O-Meter has become the Raccoon-O-Meter featuring "Flattop" the raccoon. Weather for the festival will be good overall through much of Saturday. This afternoon may have a stray thundershower. After a perfect Friday, clouds increase Saturday with showers possible late-day and Saturday night. Sunday has showers as well. See our MerleFest Hour-by-Hour Forecast for details.

RelayWithRay.Com It's the craziest thing I have ever seriously considered doing... Beginning May 17, I'm running the Blue Ridge Parkway. See RelayWithRay.Com for details.

Voting has closed in the 2017 Blue Ridge Parkway Calendar Photo contest. We'll announce winners soon, maybe by the end of this week.

Forecast Discussion

A cold front was moving east across Tennessee Thursday. It will move across western North Carolina tonight.

This setup sparked isolated showers and thunderstorms Thursday afternoon. They have shifted east of the mountain region this evening. Behind the front, we’ve got a fabulous Friday in store, with plenty of sunshine and more warm temperatures.

On Saturday, low-pressure will be organizing in the nation’s midsection and heading our way for Sunday. Saturday will be the salvageable of the two weekend days, with sunshine fading behind increasing clouds, and showers arriving during the afternoon and evening.

Sunday features some long-overdue steady rainfall and cooler temperatures. This weather system will be exiting stage right on Monday, so we’ll get back to some pleasant weather after some needed weekend rainfall.
