Rainy Start - Dry Middle - Rainy End

You might be waking up to little sprinkles of rain this morning. If not, don't worry, you'll be getting your share later today. Some sunshine will be in the mix as we head through the late morning hours, but Mother Nature will switch gears heading into the afternoon and evening hours as shower coverage ramps up. Tomorrow will be a mirror image of today with slight greater rain coverage and warm temperatures. Wednesday, the forecast begins to brighten as this round of wet weather will be gone by the afternoon. The second half of the work week is mostly dry and quite refreshing with considerably lower humidity levels.

Forecast Discussion

The high pressure moves further offshore today making way for a cold front that will push through tomorrow night. After the cold front departs, it will allow cool, dry high pressure to settle in our area for the middle part of next week. High pressure remains in effect until Friday morning. After that, it heads to New England as a warm front builds and forces the it out of our area. By Saturday morning, that same warm front will have passed through our area, but it will have left it's mark.

Ahead of the aforementioned cold front, we will remain in a warm and humid air mass, conducive to the development of numerous showers and thunderstorms. This event will be focused primarily on the afternoon and evening hours for both Monday and Tuesday.

Wednesday through Friday, as that new high pressure takes control, we will be in a less humid environment. Promoting clear skies and sunny days for Southwestern VA.

Friday afternoon, and into the weekend, another round of showers and thunderstorms will be possible thanks to that warm front bringing a humid air mass back into our region.
