Sunday will be mostly dry across the region, though we cannot rule out a stray pop-up shower or two across parts of the region heading into the afternoon. We’re looking at highs in the upper 50s to near 60 in the mountains and into the mid-and-upper 60s elsewhere.
A few more showers can be expected into tonight (30-40%) across central and SWVA. Nothing overly significant as only light totals are anticipated. Still, if you’re planning to venture out tonight and into the overnight hours, you may notice some showers or sprinkles.
Some of those showers could linger into the early-morning hours Monday but whatever showers do linger should exit the area by the afternoon. Some areas could flirt with the 70-degree mark in central Virginia and into Southside – slightly cooler in the mountains, as one would expect.
Tuesday looks warmer and dry with highs a few degrees warmer than Tuesday.
However…as we head into Wednesday, a stronger cold front will move into the area. Besides some scattered showers, we aren’t anticipating a lot of moisture associated with it but it will kick up the winds quite a bit. We’re also looking for our high temperature happening early in the day Wednesday (likely in the upper 50s in the mountains and into the mid 60s elsewhere). By the time the day is over, temperatures will likely lose about 10-15 degrees. We could actually be dealing with some patchy frost in some areas Wednesday night.
Thursday and Friday are looking dry. Thursday might not see highs get out of the 50s across the region but the cooler weather won’t last long. By Friday, many areas are back into the 60s.
So enjoy this last day of the weekend. Pollen suffers, you may notice some struggling as tree pollen is back into the High range. Grass pollen is back down into the low range.
