Update from Jeff Haniewich
Well Sunday sure was another nice day to be outside! Temperatures were in the 60s and lower 70s under mostly sunny skies. It was a little breezy at times in areas along and west of the Parkway, but we made it two weekends in a row with dry weather for the first time since last summer. A great day in Martinsville for the big race! But…things will change soon. Like tonight into tomorrow soon.
Tonight: Clouds thicken and mild with lows in the mid-to-upper 40s.
Monday: Mostly cloudy with rain forming, perhaps even a few storms possible later in the day…highs in the middle 60s.
Most of the rain will end Monday night, but there could still be a leftover sprinkle or shower (maybe even a few flurries into the higher elevations) Tuesday morning. Otherwise on Tuesday, we should see increasing sunshine. It would not at all surprise me to see more sun east and more clouds west on Tuesday. It will also be breezy and cooler with highs only in the lower 50s. We will stay in the 50s on Wednesday (mid-to-upper 50s to be exact) as mainly sunny skies will rule the roost. Thursday will also be mostly sunny with high pressure still in control. And by Thursday, we will be warmer too, reaching the middle 60s. We will climb into the lower 70s on Friday! But we will also have a little more cloud cover by then as well. We will call partly sunny to end the work week. But it is still dry.
Next weekend may be a little more unsettled. Both days look to be mainly cloudy at this point with spotty showers possible both days. By no means does it look like a washout at this point. Temperatures will be quite warm to begin the weekend, topping out in the lower 70s on Saturday, but we will fall into the low-to-mid 60s next Sunday.
