SATURDAY: A backdoor front slowly moves westward through the area with scattered showers and storms possible, especially during the afternoon. Clouds and a more northeasterly wind will bring highs down to around 83°. An isolated rumble of thunder is possible especially along the Blue Ridge; otherwise, localized heavy rain will be the main threat today.

SUNDAY: The backdoor front should clear the area with winds shifting to the northeast. This will lead to cooler afternoon highs (mid to upper 70s) along with lingering clouds and patchy drizzle. Sunday shouldn't be as wet or stormy due to a cool air wedge in place.

THE WEEK AHEAD

The front finally washes out just south of us Monday with an isolated shower and drizzle chance. High pressure builds Tuesday through Thursday with increased sunshine and unseasonably cool temperatures, with highs in the low 80s. A cold front will slip southward Thursday and Friday delivering scattered showers to the area. Afternoon temperatures will hold in the mid 80s at the end of the week.
