While the strongest of the storms associated with today’s front have exited our region, scattered light to moderate rain showers in its wake can be expected through around 10 p.m. for the area, especially east of the I-81 corridor.
Behind the front, showers will continue to gradually taper off from west to east across Southwest Virginia. However, winds will stay a bit gusty overnight. Gusts to 50 mph will remain possible for areas east of I-77 to just east of I-81. Winds should subside after dawn.
Sunday, behind the front, will be cooler with sunshine returning. Although highs will be cooler compared to Saturday, Sunday’s highs will be closer to seasonable. Look for highs in the upper 40s in the mountains to lower 50s across the Piedmont.
Sunday night will be clear, calm, and cold with lows dropping to below freezing for just about everyone.
Monday’s high climb back up to around 60 degrees with temperatures continuing to warm through the rest of the week. Highs could top out near 70 degrees for some by Thursday.
