Clouds will continue moving into the area for Sunday with a few showers possible across the region. We can’t rule out a few claps of thunder either.
Rainfall rates for the day will be light but have the umbrella handy in case you happen to be under a passing shower.
Monday will see a higher chance of passing showers. We’re not looking for a washout by any means, but off-and-on showers will again by likely.
On Tuesday, the rain chances lower, but there could still be a few showers – maybe even a passing thunderstorm or two through the day.
By Wednesday, we’ll start to dry out and see a bit more sunshine. We’ll also start to warm things up a bit to above-normal levels.
We’ll continue the dry trend into the end of the upcoming week.
Now, as far as temperatures…they’re all over the place from reasonably-below normal to well-above normal.
On Sunday and Monday, we’re expecting highs in the 60s in the mountains and into the upper 60s to lower 70s further east.
On Tuesday, we start to warm up. Our mountain communities can expect highs in the upper 60s to the mid 70s. Mid-to-upper 70s east of the Blue Ridge.
Into Wednesday, we’re looking for highs to be into the lower and middle 80s in the central and eastern part of the region. Highs may linger back into the 70s in the mountains.
On Thursday and Friday, we’re looking even warmer – upper 70s and lower 80s in the mountains and well into the 80s elsewhere.
By next weekend, many areas outside of the mountains look to flirt with 90. Even in the mountains…expect highs into the 80s.
So, a true taste of summer looks to be in the forecast as we inch closer to the Memorial Day holiday later this month, so cool weather fans…enjoy the next few days because changes are a-comin’!
