Forecast Last Updated at Monday, May 21, 2018 at 10:00PM

Warm and Unsettled

We remain in a warm, humid southerly flow. A "cannot rule out" shower possibility remains through the nighttime hours. Expect greater coverage of showers and storms Tuesday, focused on but not limited to the afternoon and evening hours. A front moves through from the Wednesday evening keeping scattered afternoon and evening thunderstorms in the region. We will have a couple days with less rain (Thursday and Friday) before ramping back up for the weekend.

Here are the Winners of the 2019 Blue Ridge Parkway Photo Contest. We received 720 photos and over 16,000 votes. The cover winner was Johnny Davidson.. A rime ice scene from the top of Craggy Pinnacle. Congratulations to all the monthly winners. We will soon choose another 40 or so photos to be included in cameo roles. Thanks to everyone who participated in the contest.

Forecast Discussion

The weather map continues to look more like July than May, complete with the potential for a tropical storm aimed at Louisiana for the weekend. A cold front will pass through Western NC from the north late Wednesday before fading off the map late Friday.

Tonight and Tuesday, we remain in a humid, southerly flow around a Bermuda high. An overnight shower can't entirely be ruled out. Tuesday has more showers and thundershowers, and not completely limited to the PM hours.

The front moving through late Wednesday keeps scattered convection in our forecast Wednesday afternoon and evening. However, Thursday and Friday look drier with only isolated afternoon coverage Thursday and widely scattered Friday afternoon into the early evening.

The front fades off the map by Saturday allowing increased moisture to flow from the Gulf between the tropical low in Louisiana and the Bermuda High. Shower/thundershower coverage ramps up Saturday (scattered) and Sunday (widespread).
