Pinpoint Weather: Mild pattern for the middle of the week, cooler over the weekend

Weather Blog

The rain and fog and freezing fog is now in our rear-view mirror as we look ahead to the mild and dry pattern of a few days. High pressure has moved overhead and will keep the region bathed in sunshine and the mercury in the thermometer rising above the 50° mark east of the foothills.

Tonight, expect to see clear and cold weather. The clear skies will allow any heat that we gained from the sun during the day to “radiate” away from the surface.  The stargazing will be great, but bundle up. There is also a slight chance for some fog, and if the fog forms in an area where temps are below freezing, Freezing Fog may develop.

Here is what that phenomenon is:

Wednesday will be a day more like early Spring than the middle of winter.  Highs will top out in the middle 50s again as the March-like feel to the region continues.

Thursday looks to be a continuation of the March Madness with temps once again about ten degrees above normal.  There may be a few clouds creeping into the skies over Virginia, but not much to them. 

Friday looks to put an end to the warmer pattern as a cold front approached from the west. The temps will still be a little above normal, but not by much. There will be a noticeable amount of cloud cover arriving ahead of the front as we get ready for some mountain snow and rain. The rain and snow will more than likely arrive overnight into Saturday and linger off and on into the early weekend. 

Enjoy the mild pattern for now as there is always a chance we may see temps below freezing in April. 

Stay safe
