Almost Perfect Weekend
The weather this weekend will be so nice you'll want to bottle it up and save it for that "rainy day" weekend. Sunny skies, light winds, and comfortable temperatures will be the weather highlights this weekend.
All good things must come to an end though and the weather for early to mid next week will be in sharp contrast to this weekend. Clouds and rain roll in ahead of a cold front to our west and developing low pressure in the Southeast on Monday. We should see some periods of heavy rain Monday night and maybe even a rumble of thunder. Clearing will begin Tuesday afternoon but it will turn windy and colder Tuesday night and there is a chance for some snow flurries on Wednesday.
The windy and colder weather should put you in the mood for our RaysWeather.Com Fearless Forecast for Winter 2017-2018 Enjoy.
Festivals abound this weekend... Here's an hourly forecast for both the Woolly Worm Festival and Valle Country Fair. RaysWeather.Com's David Still will be at the Woolly Worm Festival Saturday; Ray will be there Sunday.

High pressure will control our weather this weekend providing plenty of sunshine, light winds and comfortable temperatures. We hope you get a chance to get outside and enjoy the fantastic fall weather.
Things start to change Monday. A cold front will be moving in from the west and a low pressure will develop over Mississippi/Alabama and move west of the Appalachians (along the front) Monday and Tuesday. Clouds and rain will develop ahead of the front and low and there could be some periods of heavy rain Monday night. The atmosphere is unstable and we could hear some rumbles of thunder during the heavy rain.
Skies begin to clear Tuesday as the cold front passes but it will turn windy and colder Tuesday night and Wednesday. A snow flurry or two is possible Wednesday as mostly cloudy skies will return. The low level flow begins to turn from the NW to to the south Thursday and that will bring us clear skies and warmer temperatures for the end of the week.
