Warm, Humid

The remnant low previously known as Barry churns in the Mid-Mississippi Valley for one more day before moving east. Tuesday has warm, humid weather with isolated afternoon thundershowers. Wednesday afternoon, Wednesday night, and daytime Thursday, Barry's remnant moves across the Appalachians increasing shower/thunderstorm coverage. The warmest days of summer thus far are expected next weekend.

RaysWeather.com has been involved with the Middle Fork Greenway for several years. The Middle Fork Greenway is a premier project of Blue Ridge Conservancy to connect Blowing Rock to Boone with a multi-use recreational trail. Many local businesses are partnering with the 'Round-Up for the Greenway in July' campaign by finding creative ways to encourage support for the Middle Fork Greenway. The pop-up ad on BooneWeather.com will appear once per day per computer and we hope you will contribute. Additionally, RaysWeather.com is donating July mobile app sales to the Middle Fork Greenway.

Forecast Discussion

The low formerly known as Barry behaved as expected last week. It was in Arkansas today and will drift into Missouri tomorrow before moving slowly east along the Ohio Valley and eventually reach the Appalachians early Thursday. Warm, muggy high pressure controls the Southeast through Wednesday. It recedes slightly as Barry's remnant low moves east but rebuilds even stronger late this week.

Tuesday, we have another warm/muggy day with stray heat-driven afternoon thundershowers.

Late Wednesday afternoon, shower and thunderstorm coverage increases with the approach of Barry's remnant low. Showers and storms are a good bet Wednesday night into Thursday.

Barry leaves "tropical soup" across the Southeast as high pressure rebuilds. Friday through the weekend, expect the warmest, muggiest weather of the season thus far. You'll wonder if you are in Boone or Biloxi, Jefferson or Jacksonville, Banner Elk or Baton Rouge, Spruce Pine or St. Petersburg, etc. Each afternoon will have at least widely scattered showers and storms with increased coverage Sunday as a front edges closer from the north.
