Hottest So Far

We are experiencing the hottest weather so far this summer in the High Country this weekend, and the toasty temperatures will continue on Monday. The good news is that temperatures will begin to ease down after Monday, and there will also be a better chance for scattered showers and thunderstorms for the foreseeable future, starting Tuesday afternoon. We could actually use the rainfall.

The Golf-O-Meter has temporally become the Fest-O-Meter. RaysWeather.Com is the weather forecast partner of FloydFest, rated one of the best music festivals in the country. Floydfest happens next Wednesday through Sunday (July 27-31), just south of Floyd, VA. For festival details see FloydFest.Com.

Forecast Discussion

While parts of the Foothills and southwest NC mountains have been getting in on the rain, the High Country has been mostly missing it for much of July. Showers and thunderstorms will really be few and far between this afternoon and again on Monday, so most places will stay dry.

A weak cold front will make a run toward the state by the middle of next week, but probably will fail to move through the mountains. However, the front’s proximity along with a weakening upper level ridge should be enough to encourage a more generous coverage of mostly afternoon and evening showers and thunderstorms.

There will be more clouds along with the scattered thundershowers, so after a rather hot Sunday and Monday afternoon (at least hot by High Country standards), temperatures will begin to settle downward a bit going into midweek. Humidity levels will remain high through the period.
