The Ups & Downs Of April

Yesterday was incredibly warm with highs well in the 80s for most valley locations. Today will be drastically cooler with cloudiness giving way to more sunshine. Under clear skies tonight, there will be some patchy frost around toward daybreak. Friday will be sunny but pleasantly cool. The weekend is shaping-up nicely with more pleasant temperatures. Saturday will be sunny, followed by some more clouds on Sunday.

Voting is underway in the 2019 Blue Ridge Parkway Calendar Photo Contest. We received over 700 entries in the contest (the most ever). Many thanks to all the photographers for the great response. Voting will continue until May 1, 2018.

Forecast Discussion

A cold front will reach the coast later this afternoon. Behind the front, a noticeably cooler air mass will replace the unseasonable Wednesday warmth. We’ve already hit our highs for the day, occurring pre-dawn. Skies will become mostly sunny after morning cloudiness. Under clear skies tonight, some patchy frost will be possible toward dawn as winds diminish slowly.

Friday through Sunday feature tranquil and pleasant conditions, although temperatures will continue to average a bit below normal. Some high clouds will increase by the second half of the weekend.

We’ll be watching a storm system tracking out of the Southern Rockies late Friday into Saturday. It will head east, and will probably be our next weather-maker early next week with more rain returning.

The good news? Preliminary indications suggest the rain should get out of the way just in time for Merlefest.
