SATURDAY NIGHT

Showers may linger in a few spots this evening and tonight. Most will begin seeing clouds clearing some overnight. Patchy fog will be a possibility. Lows will fall into the 50s in many areas.

VIRGINIA TECH vs NOTRE DAME

Conditions appear to be drying in time for the game tonight. Temperatures around 7:30pm will be in the mid 60s. We’ll keep an eye on the progress of the rain and update you here if we notice any timing changes that may impact the game.

Steadier rain should begin to exit the area by game time Saturday.

SUNDAY

Finally changes arrive Saturday night into Sunday as the coastal low begins moving away and our stubborn upper level low loses its grip over our region. Expect a mix of clouds and sun tomorrow with much warmer weather into the 70s.

NEXT WEEK

No considerable change into next week with above average highs and plenty of sunshine. Highs will warm into the upper 70s to low 80s all week with little to no rain chance.

By next weekend a fall front will likely move in. Timing is still up in the air, but the best chance of rain will come late Saturday into Sunday with cool, crisp air making a return Sunday.

Front could bring weekend rain followed by the return of fall air.

TROPICS

We are watching a disturbance off the east coast; although development is low. The NHC continues to monitor it this weekend, but it’s expect to move away from us to begin the week.

Interestingly enough, there is only one more available name left on the 2021 list. This will likely be the second year in a row we have used up all the names on the regular season list.

Track the tropics anytime in our hurricane center.
