Pinpoint Weather: Rain chances increase into mid-week, mild temperatures return

Weather Blog

We’re not expecting to see much sunshine in the next several days.

A warm front will push through the area today allowing temperatures to return to well-above normal levels with highs ranging from the 50s in the mountains to the 60s further east.

A few showers will be possible across the area on Tuesday; however, those chances will be slightly higher in the mountains.

A few showers will still be possible into Tuesday night with lows largely bottoming out in the 50s.

Into Wednesday, showers become a bit more possible across the area. Unfortunately, Futurecast isn’t thinking that rain will be overly robust, nor overly widespread.

Winds will also be increasing just a bit through the day as well, mainly in and around the NRV and Southside locations.

Highs will be a few degrees warmer on Wednesday as well ranging from the lower and middle 60s in the mountains to the upper 60s to the lower and even a few middle 70s.

After that, we’ll see a gradual reduction in temperatures leading into the New Year’s holiday weekend

Rain chances will also be lessening a bit as a cold front passes through on Thursday. Dry conditions are forecast for much of Friday, though on Friday night, another shot of rain will likely start entering the area.

The upcoming New Year’s holiday weekend is trending wetter with rain likely on Saturday, turning more showery into Sunday.

Some models are hinting at a bit of wintry mix in the area as an exiting cold front will meet up with that cold air late Sunday night and into very early Monday. There’s plenty of time to watch for changes in the forecast, but it is something we’re watching.

Enjoy the day!
