Forecast Last Updated at Wednesday, October 18, 2017 at 5:21PM

Clear Sailing

We'll have another shot for patchy frost once again Thursday morning. Otherwise, it's clear sailing through the weekend as temperatures gradually warm through Friday. We don't have any chances of rain until late Sunday night and when a cold front moves in from the west.

Does this cold morning weather have you thinking about the "S" word? We'll unleash the RaysWeather.Com Fearless Winter Forecast Friday morning.

The 2018 Blue Ridge Parkway Calendar is packed with great photography from the RaysWeather.Com Photo Contest. It has climate information for the entire Parkway and includes pages for November/December 2017 so it can be used soon. Get yours at RaysMarketplace.Com or at many retails across the region.

Forecast Discussion

High pressure centered over Central Virginia will gradually shift to the northeast through Sunday. This high will be the dominating factor for our weather through the week with sunny days, clear nights and valley frost in the mornings until Thursday. Temperatures will gradually warm through Friday while the weekend remains pleasant for any outdoor fall festivals or leaf viewing.

The next chance of showers is late Sunday night as Gulf moisture is drawn north ahead of a front approaching from the west. The front arrives Monday evening and stalls just to our east. Showers will be with us both Monday and Tuesday with much colder air arriving Tuesday night.
