Sunny and dry weather continues through Thursday
Another front brings rain chances and cool fall weather by Friday.
High pressure lingers bringing lots of sunshine into Thursday. We have a stronger cold front heading our way by the end of the work week. This will bring our area rain showers Friday. Once the front pushes east, much cooler air will build into the region. Highs this weekend will only climb into the 50s and lower 60s. Our overnight lows could drop well into the 30s.
Mostly sunny conditions continue with pleasant temperatures thanks to a light southwest wind. Highs will climb into the mid 70s. Clouds will be on the increase late Thursday night with even a slight chance of a shower.
A strong cold front will move through the region on Friday. This front will trigger scattered showers as it pushes eastward. The high on Friday will probably take place early in the day because once the front pushes through temperatures will drop during the afternoon. Temperatures will be close to 60 later in the day.
In terms of rain chances, areas west of the Blue Ridge could see rain early on with better rain chances along the Piedmont region later in the day. Rain totals won’t amount to much.
Sunshine returns Saturday and Sunday, but temperatures remain well below the average for this time of year. Our highs will only climb into the 50s with overnight lows in the 30s. Widespread frost is not expected, though patchy frost can not be ruled out in the western valleys.
