TimelineA cold front rolled across North Carolina Thursday night; and we’re going to enjoy cooler, dry air for the next couple of days as a result.

Mostly-sunny skies are ahead for Friday with highs around 82 degrees. Dew point temperatures will be in the mid-50s, which will be absolutely perfect for anything done outdoors.

High pressure to our northeast will usher in light east winds overnight. This will produce partly-cloudy skies across the western Piedmont. Temperatures will be pleasant, in the lower-60s by daybreak Saturday.

If you are headed to Downtown Greensboro over the weekend, enjoy the sights, sounds and smells! The East West BBQFest is this weekend!

Officials said 20 miles of the Blue Ridge Parkway is closed due to a large crack running down its center in Buncombe County.

The road is closed from Milepost 375 to Milepost 355 at N.C. 128 near Mount Mitchell State Park.

The crack is about 6’ deep and 100’ long, officials said.

Park rangers believe it opened up because of the recent amounts of rain.

The bank below the roadway is also starting to slide.

“Safety for visitors and the public, we’re not sure how much more this is (going to) move or if we’re (going to) lose the whole surface up here. And then further we’ve had maintenance supervisors out here today on site. We’ve got engineers coming in to do an assessment.”

Officials are not sure when the Parkway will reopen.

July is typically the second-busiest month for the Parkway.
