Fall Like Friday, Warmer Weather Returning This Weekend


Friday, we’re dry and clear with a strong high pressure nestled above us. We can’t shake the northerly winds just yet and still remain on the cool side of the high. Afternoon temperatures will only top out in the low to mid-70s, with a few not even breaking the upper 60s in the mountains.

Saturday our high slides a little south flipping us from a north wind to a southerly one. Highs make a quick jump into the upper 70s with some breaking into the 80s during the day. Overall this will be very close to an ‘average’ day for the area.

Sunday, we keep the heat and the southerly winds. A little bit of humidity begins to return to the air as highs jump back towards the upper 70s and low 80s.

Monday, we’ll climb a little further into the 80s. Drier weather remains in play as high pressure sticks around for the beginning of the work and school week. Should be a pleasant way to start the week.

Tuesday, we’re still mild. Highs stay above average in the 80s for most. We’re still mostly sunny but a few more clouds are working their way into the mix at this point as a new cold front sits off to our west.

Wednesday, a cold front continues lingers off to the west of the region as it bumps up along the edge of a strong high pressure to the east of us. We will see some clouds and possibly a stray shower but the day has been trending drier and drier. Highs remain in the 80s.

Thursday, rain looks likely during the day as a cold front pushes through the area. We’ll see temperatures drop off due to the increased cloud cover and slowly shifting winds. Highs in the upper 70s are expected.

In the extended forecast, temperatures fall back to the low 70s by Friday after the front passes through quickly. After that we see temperatures climb back to the upper 70s for most, with drier weather settling in.

Summer isn’t quite done with us just yet so the threat of severe weather across the two Virginias remains. Make sure you and your family have a plan in place for what to do when severe weather strikes. One of the most important parts of that plan is having multiple ways to receive weather alerts and warnings. Two great ways to get them are having the StormTracker 59 app downloaded and purchasing an NOAA Weather Radio for your home and on the go.
