Good Thursday Evening!
Many of us saw dry conditions today, but many also noticed that it was a tad muggy outside this afternoon. That trend will continue into the overnight as well. We have noticed a few showers starting to pop in the westernmost sections of the area along the spine of the mountains. Those are diurnal showers, and will fade after sunset.
Overnight, Mild and Muggy conditions continue under Partly Cloudy skies. A light southerly wind will keep temperatures hovering around 60.
Friday is an interesting weather day. Some models are hinting at a small cluster of showers coming overhead by Friday mid-morning; while Friday afternoon will bring a blend of sun and clouds with scattered storms developing out ahead of a boundary that will move through Friday night. Football Friday is not a washout; however, be mindful that showers and even a few storms will be dancing around the Heart of Virginia Friday night. Highs on Friday will be near 80.
Models are still in disagreement as to when the front will clear on Saturday. Our current thinking is that the first half of Saturday will be cloudy with scattered showers; however, after noon, a gradual decrease in the clouds will occur. Mostly Sunny skies return Sunday as the boundary will be safely off the coast. Next week is tranquil with the exception of another boundary and rain chance on Tuesday.
