Sunday will act as a transition day between Saturday’s nice weather and Monday’s unsettled forecast.
Ahead of Monday’s wet weather, we’ll have clouds increasing during the day but it will be a bit warmer today than what we saw on Saturday.
Highs will linger into the mid-and-upper 70s in the mountains and lower-to-mid 80s east of the Blue Ridge.
Winds will be gusty, at times, primarily in the 10-20 mph range.
Into tonight, we can expect generally cloudy skies with showers moving into the region overnight.
Showers will continue into Monday with some scattered thunderstorms expected as well. We’re not looking at severe weather necessarily, but the Storm Prediction Center does have the Marginal Risk a bit off to our west into western West Virginia and into the Tennessee River Valley. Monday’s highs will be a touch cooler with highs in the 70s across the region.
Tuesday can expect some sunshine which will help to fuel additional showers and thunderstorms during the afternoon hours. The severe threat may be a bit more possible across the region on Tuesday. We’ll have to watch future forecasts as we fine-tune that possibility. Highs will also be quite a bit warmer – if not even borderline hot – with highs in the upper 80s to near 90 along and east of the Blue Ridge. Highs will be in the upper 70s to lower 80s in the mountains.
On Wednesday, some showers could linger during the morning, but we do look for things to dry out as the day progresses. Highs look to remain in the 70s over much of the region – maybe into the lower 80s in Southside and Central Virginia.
Thursday looks a bit cooler but dry.
We could see a few showers back in the picture on Friday with even cooler conditions.
