Pinpoint Weather: Dry today, rain expected Sunday and into next week

Weather Blog

Saturday looks to be the dry day of the weekend with highs in the low to middle 70s and a good deal of sunshine. Normal high temperatures for this time of year in the areas east of the foothills are the upper 70s, but this Saturday the low 70s will be fairly widespread. Fishing along the Staunton will be a nice activity.

After a dip in the lake, you may want to check out the Rocket Launch from Wallops Island, if we can see it through the mix of clouds around twilight. Nice at the coast, but a good deal of clouds here.


Sunday is going to be the day of transition as there will be an increase in cloud cover along with the chance for a few isolated showers. The models are bringing in the rain chances a bit earlier than anticipated but I am only expecting scattered showers and nothing widespread. Since the indications with each run seem to have the rain arriving earlier and earlier, don’t be surprised if we see some more widespread rain after sunset. This will lead us into a cloudy and rainy Monday.

Monday will be rainy but not stormy with periods of rain off and on throughout the day. Keeping the rain gear handy would be a wise policy. Temperatures will drop down a bit once again in the rain cooled environment, with highs in the 60s once again.


Spotty rain lingers into Tuesday with highs creeping back up into the low 70s. May get a chance at an isolated thunderstorm Tuesday afternoon, but nothing severe is being hinted at to this point. Warmer weather arrives Wednesday and we may get back into the 80s by Thursday.


Stay safe
