Not as much rain is slated in the forecast for the Memorial Day weekend. However, a few showers and storms are possible.
Mild high temperatures return to Southwest and Central Virginia over the weekend. Highs will be in the upper 70s and low 80s. With the warmer temperatures in place and moisture in the air still hanging around, isolated showers and storms are possible during the afternoon. However, we’ll stay mostly dry for Saturday.
A frontal boundary will move through the region on Sunday. This will allow cooler air to filter in from the northeast and bring the chance for some showers and storms later in the day. Models are indicating that most of the wet weather will stay in the mountains, but that does not exclude other portions of the region from receiving rain. Otherwise, skies will be mostly cloudy with temperatures in the upper 70s and low 80s.
Memorial Day Monday is looking relatively dry and mild. Mostly to partly cloudy skies can be expected and high temperatures will be in the upper 70s and low 80s. A stray shower or storms cannot totally be ruled out, but overall it is looking like a dry day to honor those who served our country.
