Northern Virginia to see a chance of a stray shower Sunday afternoon

Nova Forecast

Most of us will be sunny Sunday.

More sunshine is in the forecast for Sunday, but we will see a few extra clouds, especially during the afternoon. A cold front will pass as we head into Sunday. With the front passing, there will come a chance of a few showers during the afternoon. Most of us will stay dry with our highest opportunity for rain will begin on Wednesday and carry into Thursday.

As high pressure departs our region, we will return to southerly flow. Moisture from the Atlantic will add to the humidity as we head into Tuesday, but a secondary source of humid air will also begin to influence our weather, especially as we head into the middle to the latter part of the week.

We will begin to see the effects of what is left of Barry as we head into midweek. A few of us may see heavy rain as we travel through our Thursday. Some areas may see more than others, primarily in heavier showers and storms. Stay tuned to WDVM 25 Weather as we track Barry’s influence in the four-state region.

Lots of moisture will make the latter part of the week hot and humid. Temperatures will stay in the upper 80’s and low 90’s for most of the week, but the added heat may up heat index values close to the 100-degree point as we head into Friday. Take care in this hot and humid weather!
