Tonight will bring quiet and cool conditions. Temperatures are expected to be a bit cooler than last night as lows fall into the low 50s. We could even have a few spots in the upper 40s. We are dry through the evening and eventually see the haze fade away.
It will be a chilly start at the bus stop. Temperatures will be near 50 degrees. It’s a quiet start though and we will finally see some of that sunshine return, although there could still be a bit of lingering haze first thing in the morning.
Wednesday we keep the trend going with abundant sunshine in the forecast, and just enough clouds to provide some shade every once in a while. Temperatures maintain their steady hand into the mid and upper 70s.
Thursday we turn our eyes to what will likely be the remnants of Sally making their way in our general direction. This a complicated forecast, that depends on the strength, speed, and timing of Sally, a passing cold front, and a high pressure coming out of Canada. For now the heaviest rain has been trending to our south, keeping us on the drier side for Thursday with a few showers and storms. This forecast remains variable over the next few days so be sure to check back often!
Friday we have the shot at one or two showers straying into the two Virginias once again. We will likely end up quite cloudy as a result of Sally’s remnants off to our south. Some sun is possible, but not as much as earlier in the week. Highs will fall into the 60s with a few low 70s across the coal fields. This is just a taste of cooler air working its way in.
Post-Sally we essentially throw any summer like conditions we had previously out the window and jump right into fall with the current forecast. The cold front opens the door for cool Canadian air to stream down into the mid-Atlantic with highs in the 60s expected for next weekend, and lows down into the 40s. Some spots may be even cooler across the higher elevations. Much like the forecast for Sally this too remains variable and could change quite a bit before we get there!
The tropics are active again with Hurricane Sally a category 1 hurricane storm expected to make landfall along the Mississippi coast on Tuesday. The time to be ready and evacuate is NOW. If you have friends and family in an evacuation zone please make sure they are out of the area, and somewhere safe.
The tropics are very active right now with 4 named storms as of 4am Tuesday. While Sally is the only one that poses a threat to the US, this is the earliest we have gotten to the letter V in history. We only have one more name left and then it’s on to the Greek alphabet! We have two disturbances that have the potential to develop into tropical systems as well.
As the leaves start to change, be sure to take plenty of pictures and send them to us. You can do so on any social media platform and through email by sending them to email@example.com
