Gorgeous weather on tap… doesn’t last too long; rain showers creep in for Friday

Remaining Ad Time Ad - 00:00

A gorgeous day is on tap. High temperatures will head into the middle to upper 60s for most. A few spots will try to push into the lower 70s by the evening. Mostly sunny skies are in the forecast.

To start, partly cloudy skies with temperatures in the 30s and lower 40s. Isolated areas, such as Burke's Garden and Lewisburg, are waking up below freezing in the upper 20s and lower 30s. Temperatures for all will increase with clouds gradually decreasing. For the AM, patchy, dense fog is forming mainly due to the wet ground of yesterday and from the cooler temperatures this morning. Fog should depart after sunrise.

Right now high pressure is over our area, but drifts towards the east coast throughout today. This will allow a low pressure system from our N/NW to creep in for Friday. Could see showers as early as tonight for our northern counties (north of the I-64 corridor). Most of the viewing area will be dry until Friday.

As the low pressure system comes closer, winds will increase especially for Friday morning. Gusts will hit around 30 MPH. Should see the winds calm down throughout tomorrow afternoon.

Temperature during the overnight hours will be on the mild side. Low temperatures tonight head into the 50s and upper 40s. High temperatures for Friday will be even warmer than today. Most of the area will hit in the lower 70s. Some places will be stuck in the 60s.

Saturday we witness temperatures even warmer. Highs will head into the 70s for the majority of the viewing area. Portions along the western slopes may hit (or be very close to) 80 degrees!

Still tracking rainfall for over the weekend. Numerous systems will try and impact our region. Friday night we may hear a rumble of thunder as isolated storms are possible. With temperatures, we will actually witness a decline in with our highs and lows for next week.
