Clear and Cool
We have some very nice weather coming up for the next 3 days. Clear skies and crisp fall temperatures will be the rule through Friday. Clouds will begin to increase Friday and those clouds will bring rain Friday evening through Saturday evening. And it will be a chilly rain at that. The rain should end by Saturday night but Sunday remains cloudy and cool. The clouds finally clear out by Monday but it remains on the cool side.
For your reading pleasure, here is a cold and snowy RaysWeather.Com Fearless Forecast for Winter 2018-2019.

A cold front will move through today bringing some cooler air behind it. There is very little moisture with the front so no rain is expected. Low pressure along the western Gulf coast begins to get its act together Wednesday evening and it will move toward the southeast.
By Friday, that low will begin taking a turn to the northeast and move from the FL panhandle to just off the NC coast by Saturday morning. Cool high pressure will wedge its way down the east side of the Appalachians setting the stage for a chilly rain Friday evening through Saturday evening. If this were a month later, we'd be talking snow with this event as it is a classic set up for snow in western VA. Hard to believe just a few weeks ago we were still in the grips of summer and now we are talking about being close to having snow.
Another cold front moves through Sunday keeping us in clouds and maybe a lingering shower Sunday morning but overall, Sunday will be a cool cloudy day. Skies clear out Monday and early next week looks cool once again.
