Pinpoint Weather: Some mountain showers for Mother’s Day; much warmer

Weather Blog

Saturday’s cool weather will be replaced with much milder temperatures.

Some showers will be possible today in the mountains. It won’t be a washout there, but plan to bring the umbrella if you’re taking mom out for Mother’s Day – especially if you’re heading out later this afternoon and into the evening.

The rest of the region should remain generally dry through the day but it will be breezy across the region.

Look for highs to be a good 10-15 degrees warmer than Saturday – generally in the 70s across the region.

Into tonight, we can expect some passing showers, mainly west of the Blue Ridge but we cannot rule out some of those showers getting into Central Virginia and Southside.

We’ll start the week a tad unsettled with additional showers possible – maybe some thunderstorms along the Route 29 corridor. Some of those even have the potential of being locally strong-to-severe during the afternoon. Any storms that do develop could be accompanied by damaging winds and hail. Highs will be in the mid-to-upper 60s in the mountains and into the lower-and-middle 70s elsewhere.

Tuesday and Wednesday both look dry with temperatures in the low-to-mid 60s in the mountains and closer to the lower 70s further east.

Into Thursday and Friday, we do introduce the chance for a few showers possible each day – low chances in the 20 to 30% range. Highs will continue below average into the end of next week, comparable to Tuesday and Wednesday’s highs.

To all of the moms out there, have a wonderful Mother’s Day!
