Hopefully, you managed to finish up any outdoor errands this Sunday. Wet weather returns to the forecast for the start of the week.
For the remainder of Sunday, high temperatures are expected to reach the upper 70s and low to mid 80s. We have noticed more high-level clouds overhead and clouds will continue to increase during the evening hours. Overnight lows will be in the cool upper 50s and low 60s.
Spotty showers will begin to move in after midnight. Although there will be breaks in the rain, it’s going to be a wet Monday as scattered showers and storms move in throughout the day. Winds will pick up, as well, with gusts as high as 25 mph.
The Storm Prediction Center has placed the Commonwealth under a Marginal Risk for severe weather. This means a few isolated strong to severe storms may develop. The main concern with stronger storms will be gusty winds. However, we can’t rule out the possibility of some hail or even an isolated tornado.
Our best chance for rain this week will be on Monday, but chances will linger into the middle of the week. There’s the potential for some scattered showers and storms on Tuesday. Showers and breezy winds are in the forecast for Wednesday.
The unseasonably warm conditions will linger for the next few days, but high temperatures in the 60s are slated for the latter half of the week.
