High pressure continues to dominate our weather for next several days.
Monday will be even hotter than Sunday as the trend for above-average temperatures continues across the region. Monday’s highs will climb into the mid 90s for many areas east of the Parkway. Even west of the Parkway, a few locales in the New River Valley and Highlands will climb close to the 90-degree mark.
Continued hot and humid Tuesday and Wednesday. Highs in the mid 80s (west) to low 90s (east) are forecast.
With high pressure in firm control Monday, rain chances will be suppressed.
By Tuesday, a continued increase in moisture and some weakening of the high may allow for a few showers/storms to develop with the heating of the day. Most areas will stay dry, though.
Wednesday, isolated showers and storms can be expected with most areas remaining dry.
Thursday into the weekend will feature better rain chances, albeit not widespread.
