Overnight front to bring an end to the warm weather
Cooler weather moves in behind the front
- Scattered showers overnight
- Cooler air moves in Friday
- Active weather arrives next week
OVERNIGHT COLD FRONT
The next cold front will approach our region late tonight bringing a few scattered showers followed by much cooler air by the weekend. The best chance of seeing rain will be in the mountains, but a few stray showers could move east. Any rain will be gone with the front by Friday morning.
HEADING INTO THE WEEKEND
High temperatures go from the 70s earlier in the week to the mid-60s by the weekend. We’ll see much drier air with plenty of sunshine throughout the weekend.
This temperature roller coaster will likely continue through the end of the month as we slowly transition fully into fall. Speaking of, the recent warmth slowed down the changing of the leaves some, but the cool nights should jumpstart those changes once again.
We anticipate peak foliage during the final weeks of October in most locations. Slightly sooner in the higher elevations. Across the Southside and Central VA, the peak is expected in early November.
Signs point to a more active weather pattern next week with multiple rain chances throughout the week. This could really help out areas that have dried out this fall so far.
