  • Sunny early this week
  • Unseasonable warmth all week
  • Rain chances could return into next weekend


After a cool morning with lows in the 20s to near freezing, highs will warm to mild levels. Most areas will warm into the 50s with spots east of the Blue Ridge at or above 60. High pressure will be in firm control for much of the week allowing for this sort of weather.

The familiar mild weather pattern once again takes over next week thanks to a ridge of high pressure building in out of the South. Highs will warm into the 50s and 60s through Wednesday. By Thursday, we could see 70s return again with stronger SW winds ahead of our next front.

Rain chances don’t look likely to return until Friday and may linger into the weekend depending on how the system evolves along a stalled front.

Highs warm to 10-15 degrees above average.
