Forecast Last Updated at Thursday, June 30, 2016 at 7:01AM

Some PM Storminess

A frontal boundary is just to our east. Wednesday, impressive storms formed to our south and east bypassing NW NC. Today, the boundary backs into Western NC; as a result, we won't be on "the bypass". After partial morning sun, clouds increase again this afternoon. Widely scattered showers and a few stronger storms develop this afternoon and evening. Keep an eye to the sky for outdoor activities later today. However, in contrast, Friday looks sunnier, warmer, and drier. I nervously took rain out of Friday's forecast. From Saturday on, scattered mostly PM showers and storms is the theme, especially Sunday and Monday (sorry!).

We have a new webcam in the family--a great look at the Ninth Golf Hole at Hound Ears Club. Thanks to the folks at the club for supporting the effort!

Forecast Discussion

A front stretches from Virginia Beach across North Carolina and into Georgia. Today, the front tugged slightly west by a disturbance moving northeast along it. Thus, we have partial morning sun followed by more afternoon clouds. Widely scattered showers and storms develop this afternoon lasting well into tonight. A strong storm is possible in our region, but more widespread, heavier weather is expected to our south and east of the Mountains.

In contrast, Friday the front shifts slightly east giving us more sun, warmer temperatures, and drier weather. A stray thundershower is not impossible, but the threat is low enough to omit from the forecast.

The next front from the northwest reaches the Ohio Valley Saturday then settles over us Saturday and Sunday. Scattered, mostly afternoon and evening showers and thunderstorms are expected through the 4th of July Weekend, with emphasis on Saturday and Sunday. We'll have dry hours each day, but your picnic will need an exit strategy.

Beyond Monday, details of the front's position is basically unknowable, caught between high pressure in the Gulf and another off the Northeast Coast. For now, we left scattered PM showers and thunderstorms in the forecast until we get a clearer forecast signal.
