Some Early Week Disturbances

A few showers and storms develop into the overnight hours and linger into Sunday along a cold front. Next week features a relative cool-down, especially Tuesday, as tropical air is displaced by the continental ridge. Most drama is expected Tuesday, with intermittent afternoon showers and storms possible otherwise.

The 2022 Blue Ridge Calendar Photo Contest is complete. Our Grand Prize Winner is Valerie Seals with her photo of Big Creek in Great Smoky Mountains National Park. But there are 14 other winning photos. See all the winning photos at the 2022 Blue Ridge Calendar Photo Gallery. Many thanks to all the photographers who shared their time and talent with us. Once again, we had stunning photography to choose from.

We are now preparing the calendar for the printer and hope to be selling calendars by the end of August.

Forecast Discussion

A weak cold front front begins to slowly move back north Sunday. A few showers and thundershowers could develop overnight tonight as a result and hang around through Sunday mid-morning. There looks to be a break around midday Sunday before more showers and thunderstorms develop Sunday afternoon and evening. Temperatures will be noticeably cooler Sunday.

The front remains stalled to our south for much of next week. Waves of low pressure will ride along it bringing periods of rain and thunderstorms as well as some cooler air, especially Tuesday (the same day we can expect the greatest coverage in precipitation as well). Things gradually settle into the late week, with next weekend looking very dry, warm, and "summery"
