(WFXR) — We’re looking for a true “Chamber of Commerce” day today with a decent amount of sunshine in store for the region with temperatures a few degrees above normal. Highs for Tuesday will range from the upper 70s in the Highlands to the lower 80s in the NRV to the mid-and-upper 80s east of the Blue Ridge.
Some patchy fog is possible late tonight. Otherwise, we’re looking Clear to Partly Cloudy overnight.
Low temperatures won’t be as cool as they were last night as we’ll see upper 50s in the mountains to the lower and middle 60s elsewhere.
Wednesday’s skies will turn Partly Cloudy as the chance for a few showers and thunderstorms become possible. The severe potential looks low at the current time, but with warm…even hot temperatures, combined with an approaching cold front, there could be a few stronger storms possible. Highs should top out in the lower 80s west of the Blue Ridge and the upper 80s further east.
Some showers could linger early in the morning on Thursday but those will exit, yielding to generally sunny skies by the afternoon. Mainly sunny skies will continue through the rest of the workweek and into the upcoming weekend.
Highs on Thursday and Friday will linger back into the 70s in the mountains and into the lower, maybe some middle 80s in the east. By the weekend, we’re back above normal with highs in the low-to-mid 80s in the west and upper 80s to near 90 in the east.
In the tropics, Hurricane Larry continues to churn in the Atlantic. Bermuda may see some effects from the system later this week. The eastern seaboard will be indirectly affected by heavy surf mid-to-late week. Besides that, it’s largely a “fish storm” as it will stay out to sea, though Newfoundland may get clipped by it this weekend before it officially becomes history.
Another potential system to watch is entering the Gulf of Mexico and cross into Florida later this week. Models are saying that it should turn out to sea as it crosses into the Atlantic and should not be a direct influencer on our weather.
Enjoy the day!
