TUESDAY - THURSDAY

Our weather pattern will enter new territory for a decent stretch of this week. With a frontal boundary nearby, clouds will return and allow for highs in the 70s to low 80s through much of the week. In addition, our rain chances will go up beginning with likely showers on Tuesday, especially south of I-64. We’ll continue to see isolated to scattered rain chances through Saturday. A helpful weather pattern given the abnormally dry conditions currently in our area.

A front stalls nearby bringing more rain chances this week.

Enjoy the break from very hot and humid air while you can because it looks to return for next weekend.
