Allergy suffers could struggle a bit today. Tree pollen is in the high range. Grass and ragweed pollen is in the moderate range.
Weather-wise, a few showers near the North Carolina border will exit the area during the morning and will ultimately give way to Mostly Sunny skies by the afternoon.
West-to-northwest winds will kick back up during the day today as well. The mountains could see gusts between 20-30 mph at times – slightly lower into central Virginia and Southside.
Highs will linger into the 50s in the mountains and into the 60s elsewhere.
On Sunday (Mother’s Day), temperatures will warm quite well – around 10 degrees higher than Saturday’s highs. We’ll notice clouds increasing during the afternoon. Some showers could become possible overnight Sunday night and into Monday where some thunderstorms will become likely across much of the region.
Monday’s highs will be comparable to Sunday’s.
Tuesday and Wednesday will be dry and noticeably cooler. Highs, both days, will generally be in the lower 60s in the mountains and mid-to-upper 60s elsewhere – maybe into the lower 70s from South Boston to Charlotte Court House.
Clouds are expected to increase into Thursday with areas of showers possible. We can expect temperatures to be even a bit cooler yet with highs in the mid-to-upper 50s in the mountains and into the lower-and-middle 60s east of the Blue Ridge.
Right now, Friday is looking dry with highs warming a tad closer to normal.
By the way, normal high temperatures for this time of year, are in the lower-and-middle 70s, depending on your location.
