Maria Blowoff

Fair weather continues across western North Carolina this evening, but the high cloudiness in the sky is a result of the cirrus exhaust from Hurricane Maria off the East Coast of the United States. We’ll have no weather of note this week as sinking air to the west of the hurricane encourages plenty of sunshine. It will be continue to be unseasonably warm until a cooldown toward the end of the week.

If you'd like to support the relief efforts for those impacted by Hurricane Maria here's a list of charities providing assistance.

The 2018 Blue Ridge Parkway Calendar is packed with great photography from the RaysWeather.Com Photo Contest. It has climate information for the entire Parkway and includes pages for November/December 2017 so it can be used soon. Get yours at RaysMarketplace.Com or at many retails across the region.

Forecast Discussion

Hurricane Maria will make a close brush with the Outer Banks Tuesday night and Wednesday, with some wind and rain expected there (some wind gusts into tropical-storm force territory). Subsiding air to the west of Maria will promote a high pressure ridge over the local area for much of the workweek, resulting in tranquil weather conditions.

Another prominent weather story will be the continuation of above-normal temperatures, running 5 to 10 degrees warmer than average through Thursday.

A dry cold front will push through the region on Thursday, followed by a secondary push of cooler air for the weekend. By the weekend, temperatures will finally settle closer to end-of-September norms.
