Pinpoint Weather: Stray showers possible Sunday afternoon, more rain expected overnight into Monday morning

Weather Blog

Rain has largely exited the region with only a few lingering showers still possible this afternoon.

Like yesterday, a few peaks of sunshine can’t be ruled out into the afternoon, but generally cloudy skies will be the rule.

Temperatures today will be a tad bit cooler than what we thought yesterday. Most areas will top off in the 60s.

Into tonight, temperatures won’t drop off too significantly (back into the 40s in the mountains – 50s elsewhere) as more rain will be moving in overnight. Some of that rain could be locally heavy at times which has resulted in a Flood Watch west of the Blue Ridge.

That rain will linger into the morning on Monday but will push out by late-morning into early-afternoon. We’ll turn a bit breezy as well after the front passes during the afternoon.

Monday’s high temperatures will occur during the morning and will fall back from the upper 50s to near 60 into the upper 40s and lower 50s during the afternoon on Monday.

After that, we settle down a bit.

Tuesday looks dry and reasonably sunny with temperatures a few degrees cooler than where we should be for this time of year. (Normal highs are in the lower and middle 50s).

We do have a chance for some showers passing along the southern part of the region heading into Wednesday. Right now, locations north of Route 460 may remain dry with some showers possible further south.

Thursday and Friday both look dry at the current time.

So, if you’re planning on heading out today, grab the umbrella. You’ll need it during the morning.
