Cloudy skies today, sunshine over the weekend

Cloudy and breezy conditions in western Virginia, Dorian pounds the SE Coast

Our region will remain on the edge of one of the most destructive storms in the 21st century.  The destruction from the cyclone has been unprecedented as Dorian decimated the northern Bahamas as a Cat 5 and is pounding the Southeast coast of the United States as he regained Cat 3 status last night.  Although Dorian will weaken some today it will still be a Cat 2 cycling off the Outer Banks and bringing pounding surf to the coastline of Virginia and the Delmarva peninsula.   Please refer to our main page with constant updates on Dorian and the tropical watches and warnings of the region.

Closer to home we will be seeing clouds and breezy conditions today with the potential for some light rain in our eastern counties of Halifax, Charlotte and Appomattox.  The winds will not get much higher than gusts near 30 and again that is mainly east.  Dorian is expected to clear the coastline sometime Friday morning and along with his departure we can expect clearing skies.   Temps will recover into the low 80s Friday and should remain in the 80s over the weekend.

Saturday and Sunday look to be on the quiet side with a good deal of sunshine and warm conditions.  The next chance for rain is not until Monday.  Monday looks to bring a cold front along and with it some scattered showers.  Spotty rain is expected to be present until at least the middle of the week. 

Enjoy the weekend, keep the folks along the coast in our thoughts.

Stay safe.
