An area of high pressure continues to dominate much of Southwest and Central Virginia. This means the quiet weather pattern will remain in effect for the next couple of days.
For Thursday, morning temperatures will start in the cool 50s. Overall, there will be some passing fair-weather cumulus clouds. It will be slightly warmer when compared to Wednesday. Afternoon temperatures will be in the upper 70s and low 80s.
There is a slight chance (less than 20%) that a stray shower or storm could move into Southwest and Central Virginia Friday. However, a majority of the region will stay dry. Cloud cover will be variable and high temperatures will be in the upper 70s and low to mid 80s. Humidity levels will begin to slowly increase as we head into the weekend.
Hit-or-miss showers and storms are possible during the weekend as the area of high pressure moves east. Not everyone will see rain on Saturday or Sunday, but storms could produce heavy rainfall. The weekend won’t be a washout by any means, but make sure to stay aware in case rain does move into your area. Southwest flow will allow more moisture to filter into the region, making it feel warm and humid. High temperatures will be in the 80s.
This summer-like weather pattern will persist into the beginning of next week. Showers and storms are possible each day, but they will be hit-or-miss. It will be hot and muggy with high temperatures in the 80s and low 90s.
