Most of the day we will remain dry with mostly sunny skies. Thanks to an approaching frontal system winds will pick up in speed throughout today. Wind gusts will hit around 20 MPH at times coming primarily out of the west.
By the evening clouds will work in from the west and then eventually some scattered showers will pop in.
We can expect a little bit of rainfall overnight and throughout tomorrow. Showers tomorrow look to be very scattered with this frontal system as limited moisture is being picked up with some model runs. Other models, such as the European, are picking up on widespread rainfall for tomorrow. We are going with a 40% chance of showers throughout the day on Friday.
The main thing we are keeping an eye on is the drop in temperautures thanks to this cold front. Highs today will be in the upper 60s and 70s. Lows will fall into the 40s and lower 50s. Temperatures won't warm up too much tomorrow. Highs will be stuck in the upper 40s and 50s. Overnight lows on Friday will fall right around freezing in the upper 20s and 30s.
If there is any moisture left behind from the cold front (most models are showing clearing happening by Friday evening) then we could see a transition for the higher elevations of rain to light snow flurries.
The weekend will remain cool and we could witness frost/freezing occurring both Friday and Saturday nights. After this cold front blows on by, cold high pressure builds in allowing dry conditions. Check out the 10-day forecast only on WVVA at noon.
