Forecast Last Updated at Wednesday, July 29, 2015 at 6:43AM

Muggy; Some Afternoon Boom

Warm, humid air persists today and tomorrow. Like yesterday, scattered storms develop this afternoon; however, some locations will make it through the day unscathed. But if you get hit, you could get hit hard with isolated heavy rain and frequent lightning. Mostly afternoon storm potential remains tomorrow ahead of a front passing through Thursday evening. The weekend looks absolutely terrific with warm temperatures, but drier air.

It's time again to... "Hit us with your best shot!" The 2016 Blue Ridge Parkway Calendar Photo Contest is underway. Photo submissions will be accepted until July 29. See the 2016 Blue Ridge Parkway Calendar Photo Contest page for details and to submit photos.

Forecast Discussion

A front passing through from the west tomorrow evening will be the dividing line between muggy air (today and Thursday) and drier air (beginning Friday).

Today has scattered mostly afternoon storms. Isolated heavy storms are possible with heavy rain and frequent lightning; however, a few spots around the air may make it through the day dry--the nature of July weather in the Southern Appalachians.

Thursday, we'll follow the general summer rule of less storm coverage overall on the day the front passes through. Having said that, widely scattered storms (potentially heavy) will be in the region Thursday afternoon.

After the front passes to our east, drier air arrives from the northwest. High temperatures will not move much, but it will FEEL nicer minus the high humidity. That's our weather Friday through the weekend. Enjoy!

Little changes early next week. Just add a couple degrees, a few afternoon clouds, and an ever-so-slight chance of an afternoon thundershower Monday and Tuesday.
