FROST POSSIBLE TONIGHT

Temperatures will drop close to freezing again tonight which means you may need to do some scraping early Friday morning before work.

THE WEEKEND

By Friday, a southerly breeze will kick back in which offers a warming trend for us by the afternoon. Highs reach the low-mid 60s Friday with upper 60s and low 70s for Saturday and Sunday. Lows will be anywhere in the upper 30s and low-mid 40s through this time frame. While it will be cool, we don’t expect frost to be widespread.

High pressure will hold steady throughout the weekend meaning we will remain mostly dry and sunny on Saturday. By Sunday, we’re watching a low pressure system that will lift northward along the coast which may throw some clouds into our eastern counties (along and east of Route 29) Sunday. At this time, it looks like most of the rain from it will remain well east of our region keeping us dry.

However, should the storm track even slightly westward, we may have a few showers in Central VA and the Piedmont.

NEXT WEEK

The start of the week will remain dry with seasonably warm temperatures in the upper 60s to low 70s. By late in the week, another series of cold fronts could bring some showers followed by another round of cooler air for next weekend. At this time, it doesn’t look as cold as what we’re experiencing this week!
