Good Monday Evening!
- Clear skies tonight, not quite as cold, but still chilly.
- Warming up tomorrow. Mid 60s!
- Cooling back down again by mid and late week. Watching some rain, too.
We’ve seen a great afternoon today. Lots of sunshine. Few, if really any, clouds in the picture. Temperatures were warmer than Sunday, so it wasn’t too bad to be outside today. If you’re heading out this evening though, radiational cooling will take hold again. This is where any heat that we got today escapes back into space with the void of cloud cover. So, you’ll want the jacket as temperatures will be quick to cool post sunset.
Overnight, temperatures will still be chilly, yet, perhaps not as chilly as last night. Lows tonight fall into the upper 30s to lower 40s. Frost won’t be too widespread, but if you’re holding on to the plants, I’d still cover them tonight just to be safe.
Tuesday brings our warmest day of the week. Highs return to the middle to upper 60s as we turn the wind directions around. Enjoy it, we start to cool down again after that.
A dry front will come through Tuesday night and Wednesday, won’t bring us rain (it may sneak a few more clouds in here on Wednesday) but the biggest thing it will do is knock the temperatures down again. We’ll shoot for 50s to close the week. It really turns chilly for Friday and the weekend as we’ll watch for a coastal low to develop which may bring us cold scattered showers Friday and Saturday, with some lingering into race day in Martinsville on Sunday. Doesn’t appear to be a wash, but keep checking back for updates.
More starting at 5.
