After a chilly last few days, we finally start to warm up as we enter Easter weekend but allergy sufferers may be doing a bit more sneezing and sniffling as pollen levels will remain on the higher side.
Temperatures on Saturday will be in the 50s over most of the area though some areas may top out closer to 60 as the colder air begins to retreat allowing for warmer air to feed in from the west.
We’ll also be a bit milder tonight, versus last night. Most areas dealt with a hard freeze but that won’t be the case tonight. Some patchy frost will still be possible in some of the sheltered valleys, but most areas should bottom out in the mid-to-upper 30s for lows.
Easter Sunday looks even warmer with highs in the 60s to near 70.
We continue trending milder into next week as, by mid-week, we’re looking at highs in the mid-to-upper 70s in many areas though some areas in Southside and Central Virginia could peak in the lower 80s.
During the period, we’re also going to continue the dry trend with Mostly Sunny skies continuing through Monday. We may bring some more clouds into the picture on Tuesday and Wednesday, but for now, we’re still looking dry both days.
It’s only as we get into the latter part of next week that we bring in the chance for some moisture as scattered showers and some thunderstorms become likely. Temperatures may fall back a touch in the 60s to the lower 70s.
So, after feeling more like winter the last few days, we’ll finally feel a bit more like spring, starting today.
Enjoy the day and have a safe and fun Easter weekend!
