Pinpoint Weather: Summer-like heat sticking around, showers and storms possible Monday

Weather Blog

An area of high pressure will remain over the Mid-Atlantic for Sunday with high temperatures forecast to be in the 80s across Southwest and Central Virginia. There is a slight chance for a few spotty showers, but any rain that falls is expected to be brief.

There will be some passing clouds overhead for the evening hours. Overnight lows will be in the mild low 60s.

Partly to mostly cloudy skies are in the forecast for Monday and rain chances will return to the forecast. Scattered showers and storms will have the chance to develop during the afternoon and evening hours. The severe threat is low, but some showers and storms may produce periods of heavy rainfall. It won’t be a washout of a day, and some spots may only see a little rainfall.

Isolated showers and storms are possible for Tuesday, but rain chances are lower. Cloud cover will be variable and a majority of the region will stay dry.

We’ll definitely feel the heat on Wednesday with highs slated to be in the mid 80s and into the mid 90s.

For the latter half of the week, hit-or-miss showers and storms will have the chance to develop during the afternoon.

While the rain could bring us some relief, the warm summer-like temperatures are sticking around. For much of the upcoming week, high temperatures will be in the 80s and low 90s. We could feel more seasonal temperatures by Memorial Day weekend with highs slated to be in the low 80s and upper 70s.

On the tropical front, Ana has become a tropical storm in the Atlantic Ocean. However, the tropical cyclone will stay out to sea and is of little concern to the United States.
