Forecast Last Updated at Thursday, May 24, 2018 at 5:44AM

More Clouds; Few Showers

Skies will be partly to mostly cloudy today with widely-scattered afternoon & nighttime showers and perhaps a thundershower. Expect more of the same on Friday. The holiday weekend looks somewhat unsettled but perhaps not a washout. We expect scattered to numerous showers and thunderstorms Saturday and Sunday, mostly during the afternoon and evening hours. Perhaps more widespread showers arrives on Monday as tropical moisture streams northward into western north Carolina.

Here are the Winners of the 2019 Blue Ridge Parkway Photo Contest. We received 720 photos and over 16,000 votes. The cover winner was Johnny Davidson.. A rime ice scene from the top of Craggy Pinnacle. Congratulations to all the monthly winners. We will soon choose another 40 or so photos to be included in cameo roles. Thanks to everyone who participated in the contest.

Forecast Discussion

On the weather map, a backdoor cold front has slipped southward to the NC/SC border area. The front will stall there before slowly returning northward on Friday as it dissipates. An easterly flow will keep clouds in the forecast today, and perhaps an afternoon or nighttime shower. A few more showers and thundershowers could develop Friday afternoon as the front returns. We expect many more dry hours than wet, however.

By the weekend, we’ll be watching a possible tropical system lifting northward into the Gulf of Mexico, headed slowly toward the central Gulf Coast by Sunday or Monday. While the low won’t directly affect us, at least not initially, a plume of tropical moisture to the east of the low will arrive by late weekend or early next week.

We’ll maintain scattered mostly PM showers and thunderstorms on Saturday, followed by an increase in coverage for Sunday and Memorial Day. The tropical low (or remnants thereof) may not move over us until Wednesday or Thursday of next week, so we’ve got another wet/unsettled period upcoming.
