Muggy night again, hotter Wednesday


Tonight will be another warm and muggy night with lows dipping back into the mid to upper 60s. Some 70s could be found in the lowlands. Calming winds and clear skies will allow for thick valley fog once again tonight into the predawn hours.

Wednesday we continue to crank the heat with highs nearing the 90s for much of the region, parts of Wyoming and McDowell counties should be able to actually hit the 90s too. We’re fairly sunny but some marginally better rain chances arise during the afternoon hours. Only a few will see rain, but just keep an eye on the sky because it might just be you!

Thursday, as a cold front pivots around our strong blocking high as we have our best chance at seeing rain for the week. We remain hot regardless, back into the upper 80s and low 90s.

Friday, as that front still lingers reasonably close to the two Virginias, we keep the chance of showers and storms in the forecast. For the time being, the end of the workweek is not looking like a washout, but more a nuisance through the afternoon. Not to say we don’t still need the rain though! Highs remain in the 80s and 90s.

Saturday remains hot with temperatures in the upper 80s and low 90s. The same small risk of an afternoon pop-up shower or storm exists as the humidity remains elevated. Keep the sunscreen close as that late August sun will continue to bake the entire region.

Sunday, isolated showers remain in the forecast but just like Saturday chances are low you’ll encounter one. Highs are still just as high back into the 80s and 90s mixed in with still humid air.

Monday looks to bring some relief from the high temperatures as rain and cloud cover along a passing cold from begin to move in from the west. Highs will still top out in the 80s but the 90s are looking less likely as of now. Small but important improvements.

In the extended forecast, we see more chances for rain filter in and temperatures take a bit of a dive too as high pressure gets knocked away by an incoming system. We’ll have to see how this holds up but after the week ahead that’s forecasted this would be a welcome relief!

As summer continues so does the threat of severe weather across the two Virginias. 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.
