NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE BLACKSBURG VA
958 AM EDT TUE JUL 28 2015

.DISCUSSION...
A DIFFUSE FRONTAL BOUNDARY WILL REMAIN IN THE AREA FOR MOST OF
THE WEEK...KEEPING A CHANCE OF SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORMS IN OUR
FORECAST. LOCALLY HEAVY DOWNPOURS WILL ACCOMPANY THUNDERSTORMS 
AGAIN TODAY BUT A WIDESPREAD WETTING RAIN IS NOT LIKELY THROUGH 
MID WEEK. 

A STRONGER COLD FRONT WILL PUSH THROUGH ON THURSDAY AND ALLOW HIGH 
PRESSURE TO BUILD IN FOR THE WEEKEND WITH IMPROVING CONDITIONS EXPECTED.
LIGHT TRANSPORT WINDS WILL MAKE FOR LOW VENTILATION RATES AND RELATIVELY
POOR DISPERSION. MINIMUM RELATIVE HUMIDITY VALUES WILL GENERALLY REMAIN 
ABOVE 50 PERCENT THROUGHOUT THE END OF THE WEEK.
