Forecast Last Updated at Friday, September 19, 2014 at 7:34AM

Gray, Cooler Friday

We end the work week on a cooler, cloudier note today. A few showers may accompany the clouds as well. Additionally, fog will be an issue in spots, especially right along the Blue Ridge. Clouds and fog continue through early Saturday morning, but look for decreasing clouds by the afternoon hours along with slightly milder temperatures. Sunday looks like the best day of the weekend with lots of sun and seasonable temperatures. A cold front sweeping through may bring a few showers with it Sunday night, but most of the region looks to stay dry as it passes through.

The newest version of the app is now available for Android phones. The new iPhone/iPad version was submitted to Apple for approval last week. The update includes all NWS alerts, a refresh button, SplashScreen, and better choices for font sizes. If you are one of the poor weather info deprived folks who don't have the app, here are the links... iTunes Apps for iPhone and iPad and Google Play Store for Android.

Forecast Discussion

We’ve been talking about high pressure for a couple of days now and for the most part, nothing has really changed. The difference today is that the orientation of the high is allowing an easterly flow to develop from the Atlantic to the southern Appalachians. That easterly flow will keep the weather generally gray today with lots of clouds and a few showers. Fog will be an issue in spots as well, especially this morning. As usual, areas right along the Blue Ridge will deal with the worst of the fog as it lingers through most of the day. Temperatures will be held down today as well with the cool wedge in place.

Saturday starts out with clouds and fog, but the easterly flow gradually subsides through the day allowing more sunshine by the afternoon and slightly milder temperatures. Other than some patchy drizzle early Saturday morning, the rest of the day looks to stay dry.

The next cold front is forecast to sweep across the area Sunday evening. It may be accompanied by a few showers, but for now it is looking mostly dry. Behind the front, a NW wind will usher in seasonably cooler air just in time for the official start to fall (which begins Monday night). By the middle of next week, an easterly flow is forecast to develop again off the Atlantic leading to more clouds and possibly some light rain.
