Cloudy Start To The Week

Waking up this morning you'll notice that the cloud coverage hasn't changed that much, and for the rest of today, it will remain that way. Throughout the day, our area has a moderate outlook when it comes to drizzle and light rain. Tomorrow, that outlook remains the same, but the rate of rain will increase to moderate. It's all building up to Wednesday afternoon, which has the best chance of rain showers and rumbles of thunder as well.

Forecast Discussion

A cold front has settled southward through the region and the result is a cool, moist wedge across SW Virginia today. Cloudy skies, some spotty light showers and drizzle and patchy fog will be the main weather focus for today.

The wedge begins to break down on Tuesday, and temperatures begin to warm back just a touch. A cold front nears on Wednesday increasing our rain chances beginning late Wednesday into Thursday. It appears that this front brings the best shot at significant rainfall for the week.

Another front moves in by late in the week keeping the rain chances with us. But the payoff comes next weekend with sunny skies for and temperature slight above average for both Saturday and Sunday.
