MEMORIAL DAY WEEKEND FORECAST:
Tonight we continue to clear the skies up as high pressure continues to push in. Near average in terms of temps for late May as we drop from a high in the low 70s through the mid to upper 50s for overnight lows. A bit of a chill in the air thanks to surface humidity from recent rains and light winds as we continues to transition from wet and gloomy to warm and sunny. Watch for dense fog tonight through the pre-dawn hours.
Sunday starts chilly in the 50s with fog but looks sunny and hot by the afternoon. Temperatures will warm up into the low and mid 80s.
MEMORIAL DAY, we should see almost completely clear skies as summer unofficially begins across the two Virginias. Highs will definitely feel summer-like climbing back into the mid-80s for most. . It will be a great day to get out and enjoy time with family and friends as we remember those we lost serving our country.
Tuesday, the heat continues as a ridge of high pressure continues to build over the area. Highs will top out into the mid-80s for most, and sunshine will be abundant as skies stay clear.
Wednesday we continue to ride the wave of high pressure with sky high temperatures into the mid and upper 80s across the region. Any cloud in the sky will have a tough time sticking around for very long either. Highs in the upper 80s.
Thursday flips the script on the rest of the week as showers and a few storms begin to build in along a cold front to our west. The rain by this point will be beneficial after a hot and dry stretch. Highs in the 80s stick around despite the rain and clouds.
Friday holds a few lingering showers for the morning hours but gradually we’ll dry out and clear up for the later parts of the afternoon. Highs a little cooler in the low to mid 70s.
Saturday sunshine returns for a great start to yet another weekend for the two Virginias. Temp remain average with afternoon highs in the mid 70s.
In the extended forecast, rain and showers return to the forecast for a longer stretch for the first week of June but temps take off near 90 degrees for an extended time.
