Afternoon storm chances this weekend, then dry over the next week
A series of fronts keeps our afternoons active
- Rain chances linger into the evening
- Another front brings isolated storms on Sunday
- Dry pattern returns next week
Rain chances will linger west of the Blue Ridge through evening hours before dissipating. Tonight will be muggy, but quiet area-wide with partly cloudy skies. Lows fall into the 60s.
With one front to the south, another one moves in shortly after on Sunday. Storm chances will pop back up in the afternoon, especially to the north. Rain could again be heavy at times with even a possible severe thunderstorm. Most areas to the south will likely stay quiet with partly cloudy skies.
With more sunshine, highs will climb back into the 80s for most areas with some near 90 east of the Blue Ridge.
Next week, we do a pattern flip with calmer, less humid, and somewhat seasonably warmer weather. High pressure builds over the east and forces most of the sticky air to the south. We should have a noticeable change in the humidity by Monday, and it will feel very comfortable by mid-week.
