Another sunshine-filled, mild December day ahead


Tuesday looks to remain nice as high pressure remains in control. Mostly sunny skies greet the two Virginia’s as warmer air continues to move in from the southwest. We’ll see afternoon highs in the mid to upper 50s with some western counties flirting with the 60-degree mark.

Wednesday we’re still quiet and enjoying above-average temps. All of us will see the 50s to some degree. Upper 50s towards the south, low 50s for the mountains. Sunshine stays with us all day.

Thursday will see highs in the upper 50s to low 60s for most of us, and also brings the first good chance of rain showers back to the region as a cold front approaches. Shower chances will be highest in the late evening and overnight hours.

Friday looks to bring back the rain in the afternoon with another weak system. A mix of sun and clouds begin the day but rain will certainly work its way in later. This will not be a significant rain event for us, but the front may stall out and bring unsettled weather into the weekend. Highs remain relatively mild for this far along into December with highs in the mid to upper 50s.

Saturday remains warmer than average but rain showers will be with us all day long as a cold front continues to slowly push its way through. Highs remain in the mid to upper 50s with the mountains remaining in the upper 40s and low 50s.

Sunday our stubborn cold front finally begins to move out of the region bringing cooler temps. A few lingering showers are possible with some mountain mix precipitation as highs are only in the upper 30s and low 40s. We get frosty once again overnight with lows in the 20s.

Monday finally brings back the December feel with afternoon highs in the upper 30s. Mountains look to remain in the low to mid 30s. A few showers pass through in the afternoon for the low lands and ice and snow showers for the higher elevations. Little to no accumulations expected as of yet.

In the extended forecast, we are trending towards unsettled weather and some cooling off for Christmas week. What will Christmas have in store? Right now, trends are above-average for temperatures into Christmas weekend. However, make sure you check back with us regularly to see what we’re thinking for your holiday travel plans and dreams of Yuletide winter snows.
