Pleasant Saturday

Skies were generally sunny today with reduced humidity levels but consistent temperatures. It was a fine day to get outside and enjoy the weather. Sunday will be much the same, but we will have to entertain the threat for late-day and nighttime showers and thunderstorms. Much of next week will be dry, but it will feel like July should.

Photo Contest
We received 1045 photos in the 2021 Blue Ridge Calendar Photo Contest. After making the tough choices in picking the 20 finalists in each season, our overwhelming takeaway was "We live in a beautiful place!" Thanks to all the photographers who shared their talents with us.
Voting is open until Friday July 17. Winners will be announced shortly thereafter. I forecast it will be difficult for you to pick just three photos in each season. See our voting page to make those tough choices.

Forecast Discussion

After a noisy Friday afternoon around the Foothills with multiple reports of severe weather from thunderstorms, a weak cold front is slipping east of the area today. Drier air pushing in behind the front will provide some fine weather to kick off the weekend. Dewpoints are lower behind the front, and combine that with a northwesterly breeze, and it’s going to feel pretty good out there, even with temperatures pushing 90 again.

Most of Sunday won’t really be a whole lot different with a generally sunny daytime. We will be monitoring the progress of a seasonably strong upper-level disturbance that will pass through Sunday night. As a result, hit-or-miss showers and thunderstorms will push in fairly late in the day and into Sunday night.

We will hold onto isolated thundershowers on Monday, then an upper level ridge of high pressure will build across the Southeast region, placing us solidly in a traditional mid-July weather pattern. That will feature very warm conditions with spotty PM thundershowers not returning again until Thursday and Friday afternoons.
