Rain and stormy weather is in the cards for Thursday as a front approaches Northern Virginia

Local News

Some isolated showers are possible overnight

Inclement weather may try to linger overnight, but it will still be warm and humid.. Forecasted overnight lows look to range from in the lower 60s to lower 70s for most. Thursday as a large Bermuda High off the east coast continues to pump warm and humid air into the region, a backdoor front is expected to drop into our region and become the focus for the development of thunderstorms. The threat for severe weather will once again be limited but I can’t completely rule out some gusty winds with any particular storm cell. Expect daytime temperatures Thursday to range from the low 80s to the lower 90s. Friday morning, the front will be to our south and cooler temperatures and lower humidity levels will be in place. With the front stalling across the area, a soaking rainfall associated with overrunning rain could lead to isolated instances of flooding. In general, Friday should be a dreary day, with low clouds, rain, and much cooler temperatures.
By the start of the weekend, the front will sink further south, allowing for any chance of significant rainfall to decrease quite substantially and rays of sunshine to peek through the clouds. Sunday starts out mostly dry, but there appears that another front could bring back showers and thunderstorms to the, especially northwest of the I-95 corridor late in the day. Monday, weak high pressure will try to build in behind the Sunday front, thus, an overall drying trend is expected.

Rain chances stay with us until the start of the weekend. Drier conditions are more favorable to appear next week. – ssumner@localdvm.com
