Dry and cool pattern until rain arrives Wednesday


An Autumn-like feel to the region today as the temps reach the 70s under mostly sunny skies.  The skies will stay mostly clear overnight which will allow the temps to cool quickly into the upper 30s to low 40s.  Some locations in the higher elevated areas may dip near freezing for a short period, so there may be a pocket or two of frost in the region. 

Tuesday will be the day of transition as a line of showers is expected to arrive in the region Wednesday.  The pattern is likely to be on the cool side after the rain falls so Tuesday may be one of the warmer days of the week with temps topping out in the low 70s.  Clouds move in as the evening comes upon us and I expect there will be a chance for rain shortly before sunrise on Wednesday

The rain on Wednesday will be accompanied by some gusty winds as the cold front arrives.  Look for the temperatures to be in the 60s most places under the clouds and rain.  The rain will be mostly gone by the evening time frame and there should be a much cooler pocket of air in the Commonwealth.  The winds will help dry out the region and also slow the development of any frost of freezing conditions.  Some locations may see some front on the old pumpkin, but mainly in the Highlands and upper elevated NRV locations.

Chilly and breezy conditions are possible as we head into the end of the week.  Highs will be topping out in the 50s and 60s into the weekend under mostly sunny skies.

Stay Safe.
