The Rain Returns

An area of low pressure moving up from Florida will bring rain chances back to Virginia.

Tonight I'm watching an area of low pressure over the not-so-sunny Sunshine State of Florida. Had this area of low pressure had more time over the warm Gulf of Mexico waters, tropical development may have occurred. Now that it's inland, tropical development chances are nearly zero but regardless of what we designate it, it means rain for our forecast. Here's the timeline...

Rain will begin spreading in from the south on Tuesday, possibly as early as noon. The periods of showers will continue on into the afternoon and evening hours. Our best chances for steady rain will occur on Tuesday night and into Wednesday morning as the area of low pressure makes its closest approach to our area. Luckily, this system won't linger for too long so flooding doesn't look to be a concern here across central Virginia. That being said, rainfall amounts of 1"+ are possible in some localized spots.

By Thursday this area of low pressure will be moving into the the northeastern United States as a cold front pushes toward the eastern seaboard. This will bring a few more showers (and possibly a thunderstorm or two) on Thursday afternoon. Sunshine will follow for the end of the work week and it appears that the weekend will bring more splendid fall weather! Until then, dust off the umbrellas and get ready for some raindrops!
