I wish I could bring happier weather news for Memorial Day. For a holiday that is known for cooking outdoors on the grill and enjoying the last bit of Spring before Summer, you just might be spending that time indoors. We start off this morning with an occasional shower and some light fog. However, once we roll over into the mid-day and afternoon hours, the rain coverage increases and you might hear a rumble of thunder as well.

Tomorrow, you’ll feel the full effects of Alberto, as he travels North through the Tennessee Valley. You guessed it! By effects, I mean rain showers and the occasional thundershower. Also, winds will pickup into the 10 to 20 mph range and that’s not including the wind gusts. Wednesday heralds the aftershock of Alberto as winds calm down but afternoon scattered showers remain.


Here are the Winners of the 2019 Blue Ridge Parkway Photo Contest. We received 720 photos and over 16,000 votes. The cover winner was Johnny Davidson.. A rime ice scene from the top of Craggy Pinnacle. Congratulations to all the monthly winners. We will soon choose another 40 or so photos to be included in cameo roles. Thanks to everyone who participated in the contest.

Attention is turned to Alberto now, as he is forecasted to make landfall today near Fort Walton Beach, Louisiana. Once on shore, it moves slowly through Alabama and into Middle Tennessee, afterwards he will make his way North into the Great Lakes. Let me officially welcome you to the unofficial start of hurricane season.

Today, a wave of tropical moisture (Thanks Alberto!) will reaches us by mid-day, generating the rain showers that are forecasted. Come Tuesday, we will start to feel the brunt force of Alberto’s winds. Afterwards, we’ll remain in tropical-like environment Wednesday and Thursday with scattered showers and storms, focused on but not limited to the afternoon and early evening hours. 2 to 4 of rain is likely for most of the region Monday through Wednesday, with higher totals near the Blue Ridge.

A back door cold front arrives late Friday or early Saturday with much-wanted relief. Afternoon thundershowers remain possible Friday and early Saturday morning. Saturday, at the moment, looks to be mostly dry. However that could change. Whereas Sunday has rain showers returning for the afternoon hours.
