Weather Blog

The area of high pressure that is giving Southwest and Central Virginia dry and cool conditions will stay in place through Monday.

For Sunday night, skies will, once again, be mainly clear. Overnight temperatures will fall back down into the chilly 30s and 40s. A Frost Advisory will go into effect from Pocahontas (WV) and Highland (VA) counties from 2 a.m. – 9 a.m. Monday as low temperatures are forecast to sink down into the mid 30s and frost may develop.

Patchy fog may develop in areas west of the Blue Ridge overnight into Monday morning. Otherwise, expect plenty of sunshine for the day ahead with afternoon high temperatures in the fall-like 60s.

A gradual warming trend will begin on Tuesday and continue for the middle of the week. High temperatures for Tuesday will range from the upper 60s and into the mid 70s. Tuesday is also the first day of astronomical, which officially starts at 9:31 a.m. when the direct rays of the sun cross the Equator.

Temperatures may warm up close to the 80-degree mark by Wednesday. However, clouds will begin to move into the region late Wednesday into Thursday.

Rain is possible for the end of the week. However, the chance for rain depends on the track of Tropical Storm Beta. If the storm remains mostly off to our south, then we may see slightly lower rainfall totals. If the storm tracks further northward, then we could see higher chances for rain. The WFXR Pinpoint Weather Team will continue to monitor Teddy as we approach the later half of the week.
