Mild and Damp Weather Continues
Not much change this week as far as the overall weather pattern goes. Temperatures will be well above average and rain chances will be frequent. We should get a break in the rain today but not the clouds. Rain will roll back in Saturday afternoon and evening and occasional periods of rain will hang around through Monday.
We should get a bit of sunshine Tuesday and early Wednesday before more rain moves back in Wednesday afternoon and Thursday.
Milder weather tends to mean fewer photos sent for the Photo of the Day. If you would like 24 hours of fame on RaysWeather.Com, send us a photo today. It has a good chance to get in. Thanks!
Thanks for a great run, selling the 2018 Blue Ridge Parkway Calendars. You can still buy 2018 of course, but we are already setting our sights on 2019--look for the Photo Contest in February.

We remain in the warm air today as a cold front moves towards us from the west. The proximity of the front will increase our chances of rain tomorrow but the front will struggle to make it through the area. At this time, it appears the front will stall just to our north keeping us in the mild and soupy air.
The front should make it through Sunday, cooling things down a little but it will remain close enough to create periods of rain. The front really likes the southeastern US as it hangs around Monday giving us more periods of rain. High pressure will finally build in by Tuesday and hang on for part of Wednesday. This will give us some occasionally clear skies but clouds will still be prevalent.
Another cold front will approach from the west late Wednesday and Thursday giving us more periods of rain. Temperatures will remain mild. That cold front should pass through Friday and the air behind it will be much more winter like than we have seen over the last few weeks.
