  • Cool mornings with seasonable highs expected Sat.-Sun.
  • Tracking a coastal low pressure system
  • Foliage peaking next few weekends

REST OF TONIGHT

Lows will dip into the 30s. Patchy frost is possible tonight, so you may need to scrape before heading out to those morning games. Patchy river fog is possible, too.

Another cool night expected with lows reading in the 30s.

THE WEEKEND

We continue to see temperatures make their way back up to seasonable. Nice, fall weather is in store for Saturday and Sunday as highs will reach the upper 60s and lower 70s.

This weekend we will be seasonable and feeling like fall!

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 and even a stray shower or two 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, but not a bad idea to have the umbrella on standby just in case.

**Should the storm track even slightly westward, we also could have a few showers in Central VA and the Piedmont. **

Showers are likely along the I-95 corridor could make their way as far west as hometowns along...

NEXT WEEK

The start of the week will remain dry with seasonably warm temperatures in the low to mid 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!

Temperatures cool back down later next week.
