Little impacts are expected for Monday, expect for morning fog. Lingering moisture in Southwest Virginia will allow for patchy dense fog and dense valley fog. Use extra caution for the morning commute and make sure to keep the low beams on. Fog will lift by mid-morning and mostly sunny skies can be expected for the rest of the day. High temperatures will range from the low 70s west of the I-81 corridor to near 80 in the Piedmont.
For the most part, much of the region will be dry and mild as we head into Tuesday as well. However, a transition will start to occur. Clouds will move in later in the day ahead of a cold front. It will be breezy at times, but the weather will start to get damp as we head into the overnight hours Tuesday and into Wednesday.
Rain is mainly expected for Wednesday, and storms aren’t expected as this system moves through the region. While this won’t be a drought buster, it will be a nice soaking rain. Due to cool air filtering in and the cloudy skies overhead, temperatures will be on the cool side, only warming up into the 60s.
Thursday will be breezy and chilly, with high temperatures not even making it into the 60s in several spots. so this should be our first real chilly day of the fall season. While some areas will approach freezing temperatures during the overnight hours, widespread frost or freeze is not expected.
