Some showers will linger during the morning on Sunday but by the afternoon, we can expect clearing conditions.
As skies start to clear, we’ll notice winds kicking up a bit as well as temperatures which will slowly drop.
By the mid-to-late afternoon timeframe, we’ll see temperatures in the 30s in the mountains and the 40s elsewhere.
Skies will be mostly clear across the region, though some clouds could linger into the mountains. In the mountains, lows will fall back into the lower 20s – maybe even some upper teens in outlying areas. Further east, lows can be expected in the mid to upper 20s. Winds, though, will relax.
As we start the week, we’ll see mainly sunny skies on Monday with some afternoon clouds possible. Highs will be the 40s across the region.
On the first day of winter, on Tuesday, temperatures will be warming up slightly into the 40s and lower 50s, though clouds will be moving into the area as a low pressure system moves to our south. We’re forecasting dry conditions across the region, but we may revise that to possibly bring a shower or two into parts of Southside from Danville to South Boston and Charlotte Court House.
Wednesday will likely bring some breezy conditions into the area. Nothing too significant, though, as highs climb a few degrees warmer than Tuesday.
Thursday and Friday will be dry with highs continuing in the 40s in the mountains and the lower – maybe some middle 50 further east.
The warmest day of the next week will actually occur on Christmas Day (Saturday) as highs climb into the 50s in the mountains and into the 60s east of the Blue Ridge.
So, if you still have some shopping to do ahead of the Christmas holiday next weekend, weatherwise, you won’t’ have any issues into next week!
