The dry weather pattern will stay in place as we head into the fall season.
Little to no cloud cover is expected for the remainder of the afternoon and into the evening hours. For tonight, overnight low temperatures will fall back down into the chilly 30s and 40s. A Frost Advisory will go into effect for counties along and north of the I-64 corridor from midnight tonight until Tuesday morning. Temperatures in these areas could fall into the mid to upper 30s and frost may develop. If you have outdoor plants or a garden, make sure to cover them up to protect them from the cold weather.
Patchy fog may develop in areas west of the Blue Ridge overnight into Tuesday morning. For the first day of fall, expect mostly sunny skies and slightly warmer temperatures. Highs will range from the upper 60s and into the mid 70s. The Fall/Autumnal Equinox will occur at 9:31 a.m. on Tuesday when the most direct rays of the sun are perpendicular to the equator.
A gradual warming trend will take place during the middle of the week. Temperatures may warm up close to the 80-degree mark by Wednesday and Thursday. However, clouds will begin to move into the region late Wednesday into Thursday.
The WFXR Pinpoint Weather Team is keeping an eye on Tropical Storm Beta. The system is forecast to make landfall along the Texas coastline Monday before taking a sharp turn toward the east and weakening. The remnants of Beta could increase our rain chances for the later half of the week, but this is dependent on the storm’s track.
