Pinpoint Weather: Cold front brings chance for rain, cooler air for Sunday

Weather Blog

Clouds are increasing over Southwest and Central Virginia. While the weather has stayed relatively quiet for Saturday, a cold front will bring some changes to the region.

Despite the cloud cover, high temperatures for Saturday afternoon will be in the 70s. A few isolated rain showers may move into the region during the afternoon, but more rain is slated for tonight as a cold front sweeps through. Off and on showers are likely overnight into Sunday morning, and a few rumbles of thunder cannot be ruled out. However, severe weather is not anticipated and there is a low risk for flooding. Many locations will see less than an inch of rainfall, but higher amounts are possible locally.

Much of the rain will taper off before noon, although a few lingering showers are possible. Due to the passing cold front, Sunday’s high temperatures will occur just after midnight. Expect a cloudy afternoon temperatures to sit in the upper 40s and low to mid 50s.

Temperatures will rebound for the beginning of the work week. High temperatures for Monday and Tuesday will be in the upper 60s and low 70s. While Monday looks relatively dry, a few mountain rain showers may move through the Alleghany Highlands on Tuesday.

Our next chance for rain is slated for the end of the week as another frontal system impacts Southwest and Central Virginia. Temperatures will fall back into the 60s as we closer to next weekend.
