Pinpoint Weather: Crisp Autumn day across Virginia

Weather Blog

Today looks to be a crisp and cool fall day as the air is crisp and clear and clean from our recent rainfall Friday. The temps will be in the middle to upper 50s in the mountains and the low 60s east of Interstate 81 for highs and the time to break out the sweaters is at hand. 

If you plan on heading out to the Pumpkin Patch, wear a sweater.

Look for the cool pattern to return on Sunday as we will drop into the 30s overnight Saturday into Sunday and have a tough time recovering to normal.  The flow of air will be from the northeast so a weak wedge pattern, or cold air damming, will set up east of the Foothills. A mix of clouds and sunshine can be expected.

Monday will see a bit more clouds late in the day ahead of what should be a weak rain maker for late Monday and Tuesday.  The chance for rain is expected to be in western counties and may not make it past the spine of the Appalachian Range.  Temperatures next week will be in the middle to upper 60s to low 70s each day.

Stay Safe.
