The sunshine out there Monday morning will fade as cloudiness increases across the region due to the approach of an upper level disturbance.
A few sprinkles will be possible and temperatures will remain well below average. Highs Monday are forecast in the lower 60s, at most, compared to average highs today in the middle 70s.
Clearing skies and colder temperatures that will set in during the late night hours and overnight have prompted the National Weather Service to post a freeze watch for many areas near the Blue Ridge. Widespread lows in the 30s are expected.
Skies will be partly sunny Tuesday, but temperatures will still remain below average. By Wednesday, warmer air will return with highs forecast in the upper 70s.
A few showers or thunderstorms are possible Wednesday evening. Looking ahead to Thursday and Friday, we expect partly sunny skies with highs around 80 degrees to the lower 80s both days. There will also be a chance of scattered afternoon showers and thunderstorms.
