Stiff winds bring in much cooler air for Wednesday
Temperatures remain well below average into the weekend
- Much colder temperatures coming
- Winds: 15-25mph Wednesday
- Another chance of rain this weekend
Tuesday’s cold front brought showers and storms to the region, but the severe weather remained to our north toward Augusta County, where winds snapped numerous trees and power lines. A tornado was also reported in Fishersville.
Our cold front moved through which puts an end to the showers and also keeps temperatures falling overnight along with breezy conditions.
This front will end our stretch of summer heat and we’ll see cooler conditions build in for midweek. Wednesday morning will be a shock to the system with lows back in the 30s to the west and 40s to the east. Highs will only warm into the 50s and 60s under sunny skies.
Winds will be back tonight and continue through Wednesday. Wind Advisories are not anticipated, but we could still see stronger gusts at times in the 25-30 mph range.
Thinking of starting the garden? It does look like we could see some frosty conditions again Wednesday night into Thursday morning as lows will dip into the 30s and low 40s. You may want to bring the plants indoors, especially Wednesday night, just in case we see some frost. We eventually start to gradually warm things up as we close out the work week. Highs will remain in the 50s and 60s through the end of the week.
Another system will be moving out of the Plains heading into this weekend. This will likely send clouds are way and a chance of a few showers throughout the weekend. Better rain chances appear to be Sunday at the moment. Highs will warm into the 50s and 60s.
