Forecast Last Updated at Thursday, September 21, 2017 at 5:35PM

Isolated Afternoon Showers

Our weather is remarkably benign compared to the high-stakes storm (Maria) in the Eastern Caribbean. The forecast is about as simple as it can be--unseasonably warm for the next 8 days and dry except for isolated showers early this evening. Fall starts Friday afternoon but the summer weather runs right over it.

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

I'm running out of novel ways to describe warm, mostly dry weather. We are in the easy chair between Jose and Maria in the Atlantic and fronts blocked from moving east of the Mississippi River. Between, high pressure dominates the East. Next Friday, we can expect the first frontal passage from the west since Irma.

The exception to the "dry rule" is early this evening. A weak disturbance to our south along with low-level moisture will spark isolated showers and maybe a t-shower.

Tropical Systems...
* Jose is just hanging out southeast of Cape Cod. It's remnant low will fade off the map early next week.

* After wreaking havoc in Puerto Rico yesterday, Maria is a Category 3 storm just north of the Dominican Republic this evening. It moves NW clipping the eastern-most islands of the Bahamas early Friday, then heads NNW into open waters. It will split the uprights (Hatteras and Bermuda). It will be east of Virginia Beach around the middle of next week before being booted with more pace NE missing Cape Cod and Nova Scotia.
