High pressure system keeps the sunshine and near-average temperatures in the forecast.
Cloud cover is variable across Southwest and Central Virginia for the afternoon. While small spotty showers have popped up in portions of the Alleghany Highlands and the Mountain Empire, much of the area has stayed dry and warm. Skies will start to clear for the evening with temperatures overnight falling into the 60s.
It’s feeling like summer outside, but without the excessive heat like we were experiencing last weekend. Much of the region will be warming up into the mid 80s (New River Valley, Alleghany Highlands) and up to the 90 degree mark (Southside, Central Virginia) for Sunday and Monday. Mostly sunny skies will prevail across much of the area.
The only concern for Sunday is the possibility for spotty showers and storms in our northern counties (Pocahontas, Greenbrier, Highland, Bath) as well as the New River Valley. These will not be widespread showers, and skies will be mostly clear overall. Chances for rain are pretty low, but are expected to increase as we head towards the middle of next week.
