Pinpoint Weather: Drying out and turning breezy Sunday; a summer feel by mid-week

Weather Blog

The rain from Saturday has pushed out, allowing us to dry out as we wrap up the weekend.

Rainfall totals from Saturday generally ranged from around one-half of an inch to two-thirds of an inch.

Sunday’s skies will turn less cloudy through the day but the winds will be ramping up from the west-to-northwest between 10-20 mph. Some gusts could top 35 mph at times – especially in the higher elevations.

Highs Sunday will linger in the upper 50s to the lower 60s in the mountains. A bit warmer elsewhere as highs approach 70 along and east of the Blue Ridge.

We start the new work week dry as we continue our warm-up.

Monday’s highs will be eight to ten degrees warmer than Sunday’s highs. Tuesday looks even warmer yet with highs approaching the upper 70s to the lower 80s in the mountains and mid-to-upper 80s elsewhere – no, that’s not a typo. We’ll be feeling like summer by Tuesday!

With that heat comes an increase in the humidity. By Tuesday and into Wednesday, you’ll certainly notice a bit more of a “sticky” feel outside.

Speaking of Wednesday, we’ll continue our warm weather with highs back up into Tuesday’s range with a few more clouds in the area but we’re continuing to look dry.

On Thursday, the pattern starts to change a bit. We’ll lose a few degrees from Wednesday’s highs as clouds return. There is a chance for a few showers possible during the afternoon, maybe a brief thunderstorm.

Some showers are also possible on Friday as highs cool off back into the 60s in the mountains and into the 70s elsewhere.

So, with Sunday’s weather being dry, you’ll have an opportunity to get outside and enjoy the day, just remember that breezy conditions will be developing by the afternoon.
