Sunnier skies this Sunday will be to the northwest with cloudier conditions to the southeast with a sprinkle of rain. Clouds many hang around areas east of the Blue Ridge Mountains today with a shower possible along I-66 and I-95. Sunnier skies come to the entire region as we go into Monday.
Temperatures will warm into the 70’s on Monday, but not before temperatures drop into the 40’s and 50’s Sunday night. Monday morning will be slightly warmer than Sunday morning with temperatures in the 30’s and 40’s!
A brief cool down will follow on Tuesday as a dry cold front comes through Monday. Wednesday, there will come showers with temperatures falling well below average Thursday with brisk winds. We clear out on Friday, and it looks like we are going to have a good day on Saturday.
Tuesday and Thursday’s cooldown will be a part of a few cold fronts set to come into the region on Monday and Wednesday. A better chance of rain will arrive on Wednesday with areas seeing a quarter to a half-inch of rain. Monday’s front will be dry.
We are exploring the idea of another mass of cold air to come sometime late next weekend into the early to mid part of the following week. Stay tuned to see how that situation evolves.
