Sunny weekend with some rain in the Mountains


Dry and warm weekend, Dorian gaining power

A large area of high pressure is located overhead and is forecast to maintain a presence over the region through the long holiday weekend.

Saturday:  Looks to start out on the sunny side and stay that way through most of the day. Late in the evening, possibly after the sun sets, we should see a few clouds arrive from the west.  Our mountain locations have a good chance to see some rain overnight which may translate across the Interstate 81 corridor before the sun comes up Sunday.  Most of the rain will be along the spine of the Appalachians and north of 64.

Sunday:  It will be a lovely day with plenty of sunshine and drying out.  We may see a bit of fog in the morning as the regions that got the rain overnight may have a bit left in the atmosphere above the surface.  Otherwise mostly sunny and dry weather is slated for the rest of the day.  Might be a few degrees cooler, but not by much as temps will still be in the low to mid 80s.

Labor Day:  Weather looks to continue on the dry and sunny side. Temperatures rise into the upper 80s and a few low 90s in the Piedmont.  The Meteorological Summer ends on Saturday as that summer is defined by the three hottest months of the year…June, July and August. As we start the Meteorological Fall, expect summer like conditions with highs in the upper 80s and plenty of sunshine until at least the middle of the short work week.

Dorian is still expected to be a major hurricane at impact along the east coast of Florida Labor Day or Tuesday.  Much more in depth reports can be found on our main page of this website.

Stay safe.
