Forecast Last Updated at Friday, May 6, 2016 at 12:28PM

Isolated Afternoon Showers

Thursday evening's upper-level low, while late to the party, got the job done. Showers developed late-day, but snow showers developed at higher elevations. Accumulating snow was mostly limited to 4500' elevations and higher, but snowflakes made it down to about 3300' briefly. But you were not surprised, high elevation snow showers had been in our forecast for 6 days.

The upper-level low, as well as a slowly deepening surface low, will slowly move up the Mid-Atlantic coast this afternoon. Blustery, chilly weather continues this afternoon in the northerly flow around the lows. Isolated showers will develop, and there may even be a thundershower with small hail. It will be more cloudy than not, though the sun will peak through at times. Clouds decrease tonight. After a chilly start Saturday morning, we make a quick temperature rebound in the afternoon. A stray shower cannot be ruled out late Saturday night or early Sunday, but overall the weekend is pleasant.

RelayWithRay.Com It's the craziest thing I have ever seriously considered doing... Beginning May 17, I'm running the Blue Ridge Parkway. See RelayWithRay.Com for details.

Many thanks to everyone who submitted photos in the 2017 Blue Ridge Parkway Calendar Photo Contest. It was an amazing set to choose from. And the winners are....

Forecast Discussion

Thursday's upper-level low lived up to its billing even though it was slightly late to the show. Rain showers developed late Thursday and continued well into Thursday evening. But higher elevations were a different story where snow showers captured attention with accumulating snow above 4500'. A few snowflake survived the fall to about 3200' but temperatures prevented any accumulation. Blustery winds and cold temperatures belied the calendar date!

This afternoon, the upper low and it's sibling surface low will slowly move up the Mid-Atlantic coast. We are in a chilly, blustery north flow around those features. Isolated showers will develop this afternoon. It's unstable enough that a thundershower with hail is possible. There will be plenty of cloud cover, along with a few peaks of sun as well. Clouds decrease tonight with chilly temperatures continuing.

High pressure developing along the Gulf Coast produces a mostly pleasant weekend. We will wake up to cool temperatures Saturday, but Saturday afternoon, temperature order will be restored to May levels. A weak front from the north gets close Sunday morning before returning north as a warm front Monday. It's moisture starved; however, I cannot rule out a stray shower late Saturday night or early Sunday.

The center of high pressure moves to the Atlantic but keeps control of the Southeast Monday and Tuesday. Expect warmer temperatures with just the slight chance of an afternoon thundershower Tuesday.

The next front from the northwest reaches us next Friday. Wednesday has increased humidity with widely scattered afternoon thundershowers. Then showers and thundershowers associated with the front arrive late Thursday into Thursday night.
