Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service Blacksburg VA 224 AM EDT Thu Jun 13 2024

High pressure remains in the area through tonight. A front tracks through the mid-Atlantic Friday, before high pressure works in again for the weekend. Temperatures remain several degrees above normal each day.

As of 210 AM EDT Thursday...

Key Message:

1) Warm and more humid today.

High pressure holds over the region today, however a short wave crosses the Appalachians this afternoon and will trigger isolated showers and thunderstorms along and north of the Blue Ridge escarpment. Most of the day we will be battling capping aloft with minimal shear and instability, so not looking like anything other than brief summertime showers with isolated thunder. Most people will only notice an increase in humidity under variable cloudiness.

Temperatures warm into the mid to upper 80s for most of the area, with some upper 70s to low 80s for parts of the mountains. Tonight, temperatures remain warm and in the upper 50s to mid 60s.

Confidence in the near term is high.

As of 120 AM EDT Thursday...

Key Message: Warm and mostly dry weather expected.

A cold front will approach the area with a surface trough draped over the VA/NC piedmont Friday. The front will bring a few showers and thunderstorms to southeast West Virginia and far southwest Virginia late in the afternoon into early evening. The front will then jump to the surface trough in the piedmont during the evening. Shower activity will follow the same pattern, falling part moving over the mountains, shadowing the foothills and then redevelop in the piedmont. Showers in the piedmont will track into central North Carolina around midnight.
High pressure will wedge south into the Carolinas on Saturday and linger into Sunday. No rain is expected this weekend.

Warm southwesterly flow will help Friday's high temperatures warm into the 80s across the mountains and lower 90s in the foothills and piedmont. Cool northeasterly flow will be offset by dry air and abundant sunshine this weekend. High temperatures will range from the upper 70s to mid 80s west of the Blue Ridge to mid to upper 80s east.

As of 140 AM EDT Thursday...

Key Points:

Key Messages:

1) Hot and humid next week 2) Showers and thunderstorms possible each afternoon and evening

A ridge of high pressure is expected to drift over the area Monday and Tuesday then move north of the area Wednesday and Thursday. This system will bring above normal temperatures and increase humidity through much of next week. High temperatures each afternoon will range in the mid to upper 80s across the mountains and low to mid 90s in the foothills and piedmont. Heat indices values may be 3F to 6F warmer than the actual surface temperatures. Diurnal thunderstorms are also possible each afternoon. Storms will likely start over the mountains in the afternoon then drift into the foothills and piedmont during the evening.

As of 200 AM EDT Thursday...

Mainly VFR expected through the 24 hour valid TAF. Brief period of IFR fog at LWB possible this morning and again Friday morning. Otherwise patchy fog possible in the mountain and river valleys. This afternoon we may see VCSH/VCTS mainly at KBCB/KROA/KLYH, but chances are too low to include in TAFs.
Light SW winds through the TAF cycle.

Forecast confidence is high.


VFR anticipated through Monday
chance of storms Friday afternoon and evening that may bring sub-VFR, especially for BLF/LWB and then LYH/DAN as storms reform west of the Blue Ridge. In addition, morning fog will be possible in mountain and river valleys.
