Drying out and warming up into Thursday

Remaining Ad Time Ad - 00:00

Any showers will continue to taper off tonight, as low pressure moves off to the northeast, and high pressure temporarily takes over. Tonight, we can expect gradually decreasing cloud cover, light & variable winds, and lows in the upper 30s and low 40s. We should continue to clear as we head into Thursday, and we should see more sun than we've seen so far for the first half of the work week! Temperatures will be warmer too, climbing into the mid 60s to low 70s by the afternoon.

The break in the wet weather will be temporary, however. A wave of low pressure will head our way as we head into Thursday night and Friday. Thursday nights looks to bring increasing clouds, and the chance for a passing shower/t-storm but most will stay dry. Scattered showers then look possible on Friday, with a few t-storms thrown in as well, but severe weather as of now is not looking likely. We could still see a few locally heavy downpours, but not quite on the caliber we saw Tuesday night-Wednesday morning.

Saturday will bring a few more showers, but not everyone will see them. With a lingering boundary just to our north, we could see rain at times along and north of the I-64 corridor. Most of the area south of that however, will only experience lingering clouds. Highs on Friday and Saturday will be even warmer with southwesterly flow, topping off in the upper 60s-mid 70s both afternoons.

Low pressure moving into the Great Lakes region will then drag a stronger cold frontal system through our area on Sunday. Widespread rain looks likely again throughout the day, but will taper off by Monday morning of next week. Behind this system, temperatures will be cooler, in the low 60s on Sunday, dropping back into the 50s by Monday. Stay tuned!
