Temperatures warmed on up as the sun came out and shined across the region on Sunday. Highs got into the 50’s today, but we are looking to see 60’s and maybe a 70 Monday. 70’s will be well to the south of I-66 along I-95 towards Fredericksburg if not a bit further. Moisture will pump in and will bring us some showers Tuesday.
A few showers on Tuesday will turn to a bit more rainfall on Wednesday. Thursday and Friday, heavy rains at times. It looks like the rain on Thursday and Friday will be another good soaker! We will have to watch temperatures Thursday into Friday. We may see a slight mixing of precipitation back in the high mountains west. Stay tuned for that!
Clouds will try to break Saturday with a possible flurry or two, but clouds come back into the region on Sunday. High temperatures return into the low to mid 40’s Friday through the weekend. We look to see at least a good inch of rain this week. A few locations may see up to 2 inches. Be sure to get the rain gear out!
