Pinpoint Weather: Sunny and mild weather pattern remains in place

Weather Blog

A mild and dry weather pattern has set up camp across Southwest and Central Virginia.

Pockets of fog will linger into Thursday morning, but the foggy conditions are expected to dissipate by mid-morning. Otherwise, there will be more sunshine for Thursday with little cloud cover overhead. The unseasonable warmth continues with afternoon high temperatures in the mid to upper 70s. There is the potential for us to see low 80s again east of the Blue Ridge Parkway.

A few clouds will move in Friday, but there will still be a good deal of sunshine throughout the day. Temperatures will be slightly cooler, but not by much. Expect highs in the mid to upper 70s.

Clouds will increase on Saturday as a cold front approaches the region. Scattered showers are in the forecast, with the better chance for rain slated for western counties in the NRV and Alleghany Highlands. Spotty showers will move into areas along and east of the I-81 corridor later in the day. This is not expected to be a washout and rain will be fairly light, but it would be best to keep an umbrella on hand if you’re planning on heading outside.

Spotty showers will linger into Sunday and skies will be mostly cloudy. Cooler air will pool into Southwest and Central Virginia, and high temperatures will mainly be in the 60s. However, expect another warm up on Monday and Tuesday with highs returning to the upper 60s and low 70s.

Hurricane Epsilon is slowly traveling over the Atlantic Ocean. The hurricane is forecast to pass east of Bermuda as a Category 2 hurricane. Otherwise, impacts are not expected in the contiguous United States. Epsilon is tracked to stay out in the open waters and head toward the British Isles.
