The remainder of the weekend is looking dry, but our next chance for some rain is on the way.
Clouds will increase over Southwest and Central Virginia during the overnight hours, but much of the region will stay dry. However, there is a slight chance for a few isolated showers north of the I-64 corridor and patchy dense fog will develop. Overnight lows will be in the 40s.
The cloudy conditions will stick around for Sunday, but rain isn’t expected during the daytime hours. Afternoon high temperatures will be slightly cooler, only warming up into the 50s and low 60s. A cold front will sweep through the region Sunday evening into early Monday morning. A few showers may develop in the Alleghany Highlands during the daytime hours. However, showers associated with this front will mainly move in late Sunday evening (after 9 p.m.) and after midnight. Periods of heavy rainfall are possible, but the flooding risk is low. Some of the showers will break apart once they bump up against the Blue Ridge early Monday morning. Most of the rain should clear out of the region before sunrise with only a few straggling showers left behind.
Some snow may fall along the west-facing slopes of Pocahontas and Greenbrier counties in West Virginia. Otherwise, skies will clear throughout Monday morning and winds will pick up. Highs will range from the mid 50s to the mid 40s.
The dry weather continues into Tuesday before our next chance for rain late Wednesday. Some rain showers may linger into Thanksgiving morning. High temperatures will rebound into the 60s later in the week.
