Summer Continues In Autumn

Fall arrived officially this morning at 3:50AM EDT. However, expect a continuation of summerlike temperatures for the foreseeable future around western North Carolina. Additionally, the dry spell of late has no end in sight right now, so expect more of the same this week.

The 2020 Blue Ridge Parkway Calendar is on the street!  Visit one of these fine retailers around western North Carolina to pick up a copy.  No worries if you live out of town as they are available for purchase online at RaysMarketplace.Com.

Forecast Discussion

While autumn has officially arrived, it’s still going to feel like August with temperatures running close to 10-degrees above normal for the second half of the workweek. A weak cold front coming through this evening might generate a few more clouds, but we don’t really expect and rainfall.

Once again, we will be flirting with daytime high temperature records during the latter part of the week. Another weak cold front will approach toward next Friday, however the chance for a shower does not look strong enough to even warrant a mention going into next weekend.

The tropical Atlantic Ocean remains seasonally quite active with three classified systems (Tropical Storm Jerry, Tropical Storm Karen, and Tropical Depression #13), although none post threats to U.S. interests at this time.
