We ended the work week with an excellent day. Just what many of us needed after the rounds of rain from earlier in the week. Now, we'll play that old familiar song again! Here Comes the rain again! I feel a video tribute coming on...LOL
Before we go anywhere in this post I think we have to get the juices flowing with one great song a bout rain... LOL... I might have used it before at some point, but it is a classic tune with weather in the title. That's about it though!
Now that we have that out of our system let's talk about the changing face of our forecast.
IN some cases high s did mange to reach the upper 80s and low 90s for some of us. I was over in Jenkins playing a round of golf early and it was awesome. By the time I finished up it was becoming a little warm, but not awful! Awful might become a problem on Saturday though. That's when the heat & humidity will try to combine powers again and make things nice and sticky!!!!
RPM Heat Index Forecast
All of that humidity will lead to something nice for a frontal boundary to play with on Saturday, but primarily on Sunday. There's no doubt in my mind that we'll see some isolated showers & thunderstorms on Saturday. The widespread activity won't happen until Sunday.
The EURO above starts showing some showers activity showing up by the afternoon hours on Saturday. I think if any of that happens it will be on the isolated scale. Sunday looks pretty decent with that big slug of moisture chugging right on through. I mentioned this in my previous post... strong or severe storms might just be a possibility. I'll have more on that just down the page.
The rain doesn't even show up until late Saturday. Don't be fooled by the lack of activity on the map... isolated stuff can still develop despite us not seeing it above.

I'll have more, if needed, this weekend! Stay cool and try to avoid any storms.
- On Friday afternoon, many of the roads in Scott County were covered in sleet and snow but on Saturday it was an entirely different story. Most roadways are cleared up but that may change once the storm rolls through Sunday morning.
- Federal health officials began quietly urging counselors around the country this week to stop using paper applications to enroll people in insurance under the health overhaul because of concerns those applications would not be processed in time.
- A late fall cold snap that has gripped much of the country and forced people to deal with frigid temperatures, power outages by the thousands and treacherous roads has Virginia and the Mid-Atlantic in its icy sights next.
- When Heather Hawkins was about 8 years old, she wrote a letter to her future self. The letter said when she grew up she wanted to work in a salon as a stylist, like her Aunt Nancy.
