Fall Arrives

The Autumnal Equinox was at 3:50am this morning marking the astronomical start to autumn. Fittingly, a cold front moves through tonight and we have a nice little cooldown Tuesday after another warm one today. Not fittingly, heat builds the ladder part of this week and summer like warmth returns.

The 2020 Blue Ridge Parkway Calendar is on the street!  Visit one of these fine retailers around western North Carolina to pick up a copy.  No worries if you live out of town as they are available for purchase online at RaysMarketplace.Com.

Forecast Discussion

A cold front is knocking on the door today and moves through overnight. I cannot rule out a shower or two along the NC/TN border with the front, but most everyone stays dry. Speaking of, appreciable rainfall is nowhere in sight and it's tough not to make the mention in the forecast and not sound down about it. On the flip side we have great weather about as far as the eye can see.

Tuesday is notably cooler behind the front and it will have a modest fall-feel to the day. However, temperatures start to rebound Wednesday and the upward press continues into the weekend. Another front makes a run at the Southern Appalachians Friday, but forward progress is blocked by an expanding upper level ridge that takes up residency heading into October.
