Pinpoint Weather: A summer-like feel returns next week

Weather Blog

(WFXR) — As the Memorial Day weekend continues, Sunday will still remain on the cooler side.

Highs will likely remain in the 60s over the vast majority of the region under generally cloudy skies. There could be some peaks of sun from time-to-time but as a whole, we’ll see more clouds and than sun.

There could also be a few stray passing light showers across the region today as well, but most will remain dry.

Later tonight, we’ll start to erode the cloud-cover but there will be areas of patchy fog developing which will linger into the morning hours before burning off.

If you’re wondering what the weather will be like for your Memorial Day grilling plans, you have no worries. There will be some clouds passing through, but we will be dry and much warmer with highs a tad bit closer to normal.

Average late-May highs are generally in the mid 70s to near 80, which is where many of us will be on Monday. I don’t think we’ll get up to 80 anywhere, but we may knock on the door with some upper 70s in central Virginia and into Southside.

We’ll remain dry on Tuesday – even a touch warmer with highs in the lower 80s east of the Blue Ridge. We can expect temperatures to remain into the 70s in the NRV and Highlands.

Most of us should remain dry into Wednesday, though there could be a few mountain showers or storms possible during the afternoon – mainly up in the Highlands. Right now, we’re looking at about a 20-percent chance, so it’s only a slight probability…but it’s still a chance.

On Thursday and into the rest of next week, into next weekend, we’ll have a chance for the typical summer-like showers and thunderstorms during the afternoon each day. Highs will likely be in the mid-to-upper 70s in the mountains and into the lower-and-middle 80s further east.

Enjoy the Memorial Day weekend, and remember to real reason for the holiday which honors the men and women who paid the ultimate sacrifice while protecting our country.
