Good Thursday morning! Or as Bo Sykes calls it, "Friday Eve".
An area of low pressure will move through the area and bring rain showers to all of central Virginia. Shower activity will be relatively spotty this morning but more widespread this afternoon. Don't forget your umbrellas! I'm looking for a high in the lower 50s, but if it rains hard enough we may end up being cooler.
High pressure fills in tomorrow, allowing sunshine to return to our skies. It will be breezy and mild with temperatures reaching the upper 50s.
Then comes the weekend.
A storm system developing along the Gulf Coast will track northeastward through the Outer Banks late Saturday into Sunday evening. Rain showers will begin Saturday after sunset and continue overnight through most of the day on Sunday. Temperatures are expected to drop Sunday afternoon, and this may change some raindrops into snowflakes as the storm winds down Sunday evening. As it stands now I don't think we'll see any accumulation, and most who will see snowflakes will be in the higher elevations and in the Shenandoah Valley.
Keep in mind there's a lot of uncertainty that remains with this weekend storm, so the forecast may still change between now and then. For now, bank on a mainly wet second half of the weekend. Talk about a great day to get caught up on DVR programs...
3, 2, 1, fade out.
