Shower chances return for some hometowns Monday
Record-breaking warmth likely Thursday
- Scattered shower chances return on Monday
- Temperatures stay above-normal for at least the next five days
- Record-breaking heat likely Thursday
Tonight will feature increasing clouds and mild temperatures. The winds will subside some before picking back up heading into Monday. Low temperatures will only dip into the low to mid 40s.
A cold front will approach our hometowns on Presidents’ Day. This will spark the chance of scattered showers, especially along and west of the Blue Ridge. A few showers can’t be ruled out east of the Blue Ridge by afternoon.
Expect a good deal of cloud cover with highs mainly in the 50s and 60s.
TUESDAY & WEDNESDAY
That same cold front will pass through the region on Tuesday. It will then lift back north as a warm front on Wednesday.
Tuesday will feature a good deal of sunshine and breezy conditions. Highs will soar into the 60s with a slight chance of a shower.
Wednesday will feature a good deal of cloud cover and a few showers possible as the warm front passes through our hometowns. Highs will warm into the 50s and 60s.
Record-smashing heat looks increasingly likely on Thursday. While there’s a slight chance of a shower, most hometowns stay dry.
FRIDAY - SUNDAY
Expect mostly dry and cooler weather on Friday. Highs will cool back down into the 50s and 60s with a mix of sun and clouds.
Another system may impact our hometowns on Saturday and Sunday. Highs may cool to near-normal levels on Saturday and then warm back up into Sunday.
