Pinpoint Weather: Quiet and cool pattern this week with a few passing showers from time to time

Weather Blog

Not expecting much in the way of overwhelming weather as the region will be impacted by an area of high pressure north of the region. The position is just right to usher in some cooler than normal air and keep the rain south of the Commonwealth.

South of Virginia will be a series of storms that will progress from west to east along our Gulf Coast States. A frontal boundary has stalled in that area, otherwise known as a stationary front, and will be the triggering mechanism for the rainy and stormy weather in that area. The high mentioned above will be instrumental in keeping the rain from migrating into our area. There may be some rain early Wednesday along the border between NC and VA, but it will more than likely be light rain and should end around 8 am. 

A passing shower is possible this week, but mainly in the mountains of the NRV.  I am confident that the rest of the viewing area will see a mix of clouds and sunshine along with the cooler air.

The main feature defining the week weatherwise will be the chill in the air. Once again, the NWS out of Charleston and Baltimore have issued a Freeze Warning for Pocahontas and Highland counties.  Tonight the temps will be chilly enough to cause damage to budding plants and new and tender crops. The temps should only be below freezing for a few hours but that may be enough to burn the leaves a bit and cause some issues. 

As for the rest of the region and the rest of the week… keep an eye out for a strya shower and make sure to keep a jacket handy. The sun angle is pretty high this time of year so if you are spending any time outside in the sun, it should feel fairly warm. 

The next chance for widespread rain is not expected until Monday or Tuesday.

Stay Safe
