Rain will continue through the early evening and then eventually become lighter and more scattered by the late evening. Many of us will dry up overnight, but we will keep the clouds and some fog around through the early morning hours. Temperatures tonight are going to be even chillier as lows fall into the mid 40s.
At the bus stop you can leave the umbrella, but grab the jacket. We start the day in the mid 40s and we will see clouds still lingering around first thing in the morning. Improvements come later in the day.
Wednesday we see the drier air behind the front really get to work as our skies clear out. The rest of Wednesday looks dry with ample sunshine across the region. The sun won’t do much for temperatures though as highs only make it into the low 60s and upper 50s which is still below average for this time of year.
Thursday, is another dry and quiet day across the two Virginias with passing clouds. We remain cooler than average with many falling almost 10 degrees below average highs, as we top out in the upper 50s and low 60s. We could see an isolated shower, but most will be dry.
Friday, we end up on a repeat of Thursday with passing clouds and sunny skies. Cooler air is firmly entrenched at this point, so we keep day time highs in the mid 50s. This will be one of the cooler days of the week with overnight lows dropping into the 30s!
The weekend looks to be a bit of a mixed bag. Saturday highs only make it into the 60s, but we stay sunny. Sunday some warmer air gets injected into the area ahead of the next storm system and most end up in mid 60s for highs. We will begin to bring in showers as we go through Sunday and these last into Monday.
Monday, we’re keeping an eye on a possible clipper system that could bring some rain to the area, as well as a reinforcing shot of cold air. A lot of uncertainty still surrounds this system and it looks to play a big role in next weeks weather.
If the system is strong enough it will dig south and reinforce the cold air that’s already in place. If it’s on the weaker side it will pull further north opening the door for some warmer air to settle back into the region. We’ll be watching it closely and making adjustments to this forecast the next few days!
