Tuesday is dry with temperatures near seasonal averages. A disturbance moves across the Southeast Wednesday forcing yesterday's front back to the north. Temperatures Wednesday will be slightly warmer with widely scattered afternoon thundershowers, focused mostly along the the Blue Ridge. Thundershowers will be harder to find west, closer to the NC/TN border. Thursday will be dry and slightly warmer. Looking toward the holiday weekend... It's classic 4th of July weather in the Southern Appalachians--warm and humid with scattered PM showers and thundershowers.

The front that moved through Monday is stalled to our south today. High pressure centered in the Ohio Valley will give us a dry Tuesday with temperatures at or a couple degrees below seasonal averages.
Wednesday, a weak disturbance moves across the Southeast from east to west. It forces the front back to the north. We will have more clouds by Wednesday afternoon. Areas near the Blue Ridge can expect widely scattered afternoon showers and thundershowers, but these showers will be harder to find as you travel north and west from the Blue Ridge.
Thursday, the front returns to the north and fades off the weather map. High pressure builds into the Central and Southern Appalachians. Thursday looks dry and slightly warmer.
High pressure gradually shifts into the Atlantic but still dominates the Southeast through the holiday weekend. A front to our northwest stalls well to our north. We will be in increasingly more humid air; that with daytime heating produces afternoon and evening showers and storms. Coverage is only isolated Friday afternoon, widely scattered Saturday, but more ("scattered) Sunday and Monday. Temperatures will be slightly warmer but not straying far from seasonal norms.
