After a front brought strong to severe storms to parts of Southwest and Central Virginia Sunday evening, drier conditions are expected across the region.
Pockets of fog will linger into the Monday morning commute. Otherwise, clouds will decrease overhead and plenty of sunshine is expected across the region. West winds will allow for warmer conditions with high temperatures in the 80s and low 90s for the afternoon hours.
There is a marginal risk for severe weather this afternoon in portions of Central Virginia, Southside, and northern Alleghany Highlands. Although rain chances are fairly low (less than 20%), any storm that develops could potential become strong to severe. If this occurs, the main concerns will severe storms will be heavy rainfall, gusty winds, and hail.
Another front will impact Southwest and Central Virginia Tuesday. While a few hit-or-miss showers are possible during the morning hours, we’re looking at more sunshine in the forecast. The front will help to bring the mugginess in the air. It will also be a bit cooler with highs in the mid 70s to mid 80s for the afternoon hours. Overnight lows will be in the 50s.
High pressure will dominate much of Southwest and Central Virginia for the remainder of the week. There is a slight chance for isolated showers Wednesday. However, the region will stay relatively dry. Highs for Wednesday and Thursday will be in the mid 70s and low 80s. We will warm up into the 80s and low 90s by Friday.
For Father’s Day weekend, we’re looking at the possibility of showers and storms on both Saturday and Sunday.
Let’s shift over to the tropics: Tropical Depression Two developed Monday morning off the coast of North Carolina. This storm is expected to strengthen into Tropical Storm Bill later in the day. This storm will continue to move northeast and stay off the coast for the next few days. Impacts are not expected in our area.
