. High temperatures will range from the mid/upper 50s in central VA to low 60s in northern areas.
SHORT TERM /MONDAY THROUGH TUESDAY NIGHT/... Low pressure system will work towards the SE US coast tonight and move to a position near the NC/SC border on Monday. Rain will continue to overspread the region from south to north tonight and persist through Monday with strong moisture advection. Periods of rain will continue through Monday night, although intensity likely to experience a downtrend later Monday and Monday night as forcing lessens.
As the low pressure system then slowly trudges up the Mid- Atlantic coastline, to a position near the Outer Banks/Norfolk by later Tuesday, periods of rain will continue, with an uptick in intensity/coverage likely again. Low pressure will slowly fill and weaken Tuesday night with rain tapering off.
Additional rain amounts from this morning through Tuesday night expected to range on average from 1-2", with somewhat less in northern/western areas to locally 2-3" south, especially along the eastern facing slopes in Nelson County and along the Blue Ridge.
Temperatures during this time period will see limited diurnal change with solid overcast and periods of rain. Highs Monday will hold in the low/mid 50s, possibly nearing 60F on Tuesday. Lows tonight/Mon night from the mid 40s to low 50s.
LONG TERM /WEDNESDAY THROUGH SATURDAY/... Cutoff low pressure along the Mid-Atlantic Coast Wednesday morning will finally get drawn into the jet stream and move off to our north and east. Morning clouds and perhaps even a light rain should give way to some sunshine Wednesday afternoon. However...clouds may be stubborn to give way to sunshine across eastern areas depending on how quick the low moves away from the area. Noticeably warmer conditions are expected Wednesday...especially west of the Blue Ridge Mountains where confidence is higher in more sunshine.
High pressure will build over the Atlantic for Wednesday night through Friday. A cold front to our west will approach our area Thursday...but it will likely stall out nearby or just to our north as it runs into the blocking high over the Atlantic. Therefore...much warmer and more humid conditions are likely during this time. A few showers and thunderstorms are possible...but coverage may be isolated or scattered due to most of the mid and upper-level forcing remaining well off to the north and west. A backdoor cold front may impact the area next weekend.
