.WEATHER SUMMARY...
THE REGION HAS EXPERIENCED YET ANOTHER EVENING AND NIGHT OF SOME
LOCATIONS RECEIVING A GENEROUS AMOUNT OF RAIN...OTHER PARTS
LITTLE IF ANY. THE FOCUS WAS THE MOUNTAIN EMPIRE REGION OF
SOUTHWEST VIRGINIA AND THE NORTHERN MOUNTAIN OF NORTH CAROLINA.
DISSIPATING THUNDERSTORM CLUSTERS FROM EASTERN KENTUCKY AND
WESTERN WEST VIRGINIA PROGRESSED IN OUR REGION...BUT IN A MUCH
WEAKER STATE. THIS DID NOT STOP SOME LOCATIONS RECEIVING ON
AVERAGE BETWEEN ONE-HALF INCH TO ONE INCH OF RAIN...ESPECIALLY THE
AREA NEAR AND WEST OF INTERSTATE 77 IN SOUTHWEST VIRGINIA. EARLY
SATURDAY MORNING...SKIES WERE PARTLY CLOUDY TO MOSTLY CLOUDY
ACROSS THE REGION WITH PATCHY LIGHT FOG. TEMPERATURES RANGED FROM
THE MID 60S TO NEAR 70 ACROSS THE MOUNTAINS TO THE LOWER 70S
ACROSS THE PIEDMONT.

.FORECAST SUMMARY...
ONE MORE DAY OF SCATTERED SHOWERS AND STORMS IS EXPECTED FOR THE
AREA TODAY. TONIGHT INTO SUNDAY...A BACKDOOR COLD FRONT WILL MOVE
THROUGH THE AREA WITH HIGH PRESSURE ON ITS HEELS WORKING SOUTH
ALONG THE SPINE OF THE APPALACHIANS. THIS WILL BRING AN END TO OUR
CONVECTIVE ACTIVITY...BUT PRECIPITATION WILL CONTINUE IN THE FORM
OF LIGHT RAIN AND DRIZZLE UNDER LOW CLOUDS...ALONG THE INCREASED
COVERAGE OF FOGGY CONDITIONS...ESPECIALLY DURING THE OVERNIGHT.
THE DRIER AIR ASSOCIATED WITH THE HIGH PRESSURE WILL ARRIVE MONDAY
INTO TUESDAY FOR THE ENTIRE REGION.
