Starting the week off with more sunshine


DISCUSSION: Monday will continue our streak of warm, mostly dry summer days. With a frontal boundary shifting further away from our region, most of us shouldn’t have to worry about rain. With the way our pattern is shaping up though, enough warmth and moisture will provide the right ingredients for some showers and storms in the mountains. Anything that pops doesn’t look to be too bad, and overall it’s looking like a great start to the work week.

Monday is shaping up to be pretty nice.

Any showers will die off as we lose the daytime heat Monday evening, which should setup for a pretty calm night. Some fog will be possible, especially in spots that saw rain. Expect lows in the 60s.

Tuesday will be very similar to Monday, with highs back in the mid 80s and an isolated shower or storm possible later in the day. More sunshine is in store for us though, so it’s looking like a good day for the pool! A cold front will be approaching the region by the end of the day, though most models are in agreement that widespread precipitation will hold off until Wednesday.

An organized system to our north will bring the cold front through for the middle of the week. Showers and storms make their return to the Two Virginias on Wednesday. Through the past week, we haven’t had too much widespread rain, so flooding doesn’t appear to be too much of a concern for now.

Cold front arrives on Wednesday, rain expected.

Some more scattered showers are possible on Thursday and Friday as an upper level disturbance slowly moves through the region. Coverage certainly looks to be less than Wednesday, which is good news. However, it will be wise to keep the umbrella with you through both days.

Next weekend is looking like another great one at the moment! If we can get Canadian high pressure to build in quickly enough and hang tight over the region, we won’t have to worry about any showers passing through for the first weekend of the state fair! Temperatures look to run close to average both Saturday and Sunday, as highs near 80 are expected.

July has come to a close! On average, it is one of our warmest and wettest months. However, we aren’t done with summer that fast, as August is bound to bring us plenty more 80 degree days and humidity alongside it. As we approach the late summer season, stormy weather remains a hazard on our radar. At this point in the year, our atmosphere is very warm at the surface as well as aloft, which usually helps us steer clear of too much severe weather. However, our attention will remain focused on potential flooding and high water with any stronger systems that move through the region.
