We have a great day ahead with lots of sunshine, lowering humidity and highs around 90.  The weekend still looks much cooler but also wet at times.

Thursday: Mostly Sunny; Warm But With Lower Humidity

Highs: Around 90 | Wind: WNW 5-10

Tonight: Clear To Partly Cloudy; Seasonable

Lows: Mid 60s To Around 70 | Wind: Light SW

Friday: Increasing Clouds; Scattered PM Storms Developing; Some May Be Severe

Highs: Around 90 | Wind: SW 10-15

High pressure will briefly slide into place today, allowing for plenty of sunshine, lowering humidity and high temperatures around 90 degrees.  In case you are keeping track that is just a bit above the average which is 87 degrees.

Sunshine will mix with and ultimately give way to increasing cloudiness as our next cold front pushes into the region Friday. Additionally, the dynamics appear to be in place which may support a couple isolated to severe storms with damaging winds and hail the top threats.

The cold front looks to become stationary to our south across southern Virginia by Saturday afternoon. While Saturday is not expected to be a washout it will feature variable cloudiness, cooler temperatures in the low 80 and a 40 percent chance of thundershowers.

Unfortunately, over the past 24 hours, one of our more reliable weather guidance is now developing an area of low pressure along the stalled front to our south. With this new information in mind, Ireally have no choice but to introduce a 40 percent chance of more showers at times Sunday. Again I don’t anticipate a total wash out Sunday either but it’s not looking as pretty I was hoping for yesterday. If the clouds hold strong and showers continue off and on throughout the day Sunday it is possible that temperatures may only make it into the upper 70s to around 80 degrees.

By Monday high pressure start to build in from west to east with day time highs in the low to mid-80s.

~ Have a good day!
