Pinpoint Weather: Seasonably cool temperatures, slight shower chances this weekend

Weather Blog

While most will likely remain dry, we do have a chance for a few showers across parts of the region through the weekend.

We’ll notice pollen levels, at least tree pollen, will be on the high side again today. Grass pollen levels will be down slightly, but still slightly elevated.

We’ll notice clouds moving in during the day on Saturday. With that, there could be a few stray lighter showers possible across the region later on Saturday with the best chance of a few showers happening after sunset tonight.

Again, most areas will remain dry but a few isolated showers/sprinkles cannot be ruled out.

Into Sunday, a similar story – variably cloudy skies with a few stray showers/sprinkles possible.

Temperatures each day will be in the low-to-mid 60s over much of the region. Our mountain communities into the NRV and the Highlands may linger into the upper 50s for highs.

Heading into next week, we’ll keep things a tad unsettled with a few showers/sprinkles possible on Monday with highs warming a few degrees from the weekend’s high temperatures.

Tuesday looks like a dry day with a mix of clouds and sunshine. Tuesday also looks to be the warmest day of the year with areas east of the Blue Ridge possibly topping out close to 70 degrees. A bit cooler in the mountains, as we could expect.

On Wednesday, there could be a few showers/sprinkles again possible across the region as high cool off into the lower 60s for highs east of the Blue Ridge – more like mid 50s for highs in the mountains. We’ll also notice the winds kicking up a bit.

Thursday looks breezy and cooler with highs struggling to hit 60 degrees. We do look dry, though.

Then on Friday, we’ll start to warm things up a bit to end the upcoming workweek with highs in the lower to mid 60s across the region.

So, I wouldn’t say to have the umbrella nearby this weekend. Whatever rain may fall will be on the lighter side and will be generally isolated but that chance does exist.

But hey…it’s the weekend, so get outside and enjoy it!
