Forecast Last Updated at Thursday, June 20, 2019 at 4:26PM

Evening Storms; Friday Sun

Showers and thunderstorms are likely through the evening hours and are set to diminish around dusk. The good news is a return of sunshine Friday with warm temperatures as we welcome the official start to summer. Weekend weather isn’t looking too shabby, either, with many more dry hours than wet. Temperatures will be back a few degrees above normal.

Voting in the RaysWeather.Com 2020 Blue Ridge Parkway Calendar Photo Contest has begun. We received over 400 entries. You can vote each day through June 24, 2019.

Forecast Discussion

A cold front will cross the state this evening, and it will be accompanied by scattered to numerous showers and thunderstorms. After the front exits, it will pave the way for a sunny, dry Friday around western North Carolina. The summer solstice arrives at 11:54 AM EDT Friday morning.

The weekend looks nice, but we will have to be mindful of happenings upstream over the Ohio and Tennessee Valley region. As our mid-level steering wind flow turns northwesterly, we will have to watch for clusters of showers and thunderstorms to be transported in our direction from these areas. It’s possible that some of this activity could affect on Saturday, and perhaps again during a portion of Sunday. Don’t cancel any plans, but be mindful of this potential.

Right on cue with the solstice, temperatures will be returning to normal, and actually rising above normal as we go through the weekend and into the last week of June.
