Dry and mild Tuesday before rain moves in Wednesday

Weather Blog

An area of high pressure remains over top of the region, meaning fair weather can be expected for much of Tuesday. Temperatures will warm up into the low to mid 70s.  Clouds move during the evening and rain will start to move in overnight.

Rain is likely Wednesday, especially for the first half of the day. The rain will also be accompanied by gusty winds as the cold front moves through. The rain, cool air filtering in, and the cloudy skies will keep temperatures in the 60s in many spots.  The rain will be mostly gone by the evening. Overall, rainfall totals will range from 0.25″-0.50″ in many spots. However, an inch of rain is possible in localized areas. This won’t be a drought busting rain event, but it is much needed.

Thursday will be chilly and breezy. High temperatures will only rise into the 50s and 60s, and the winds won’t make things feel any warmer. While widespread frost is not expected overnight, there is a chance some frost could develop in parts of the Alleghany Highlands.

Dry weather will return for the end of the week and into the weekend. Temperatures will slowly warm up into the upper 60s and low 70s for the weekend. However, another chance for rain is possible for the beginning of next week.
