Forecast Last Updated at Monday, October 15, 2018 at 6:30PM

Warmer Start; Isolated Showers

It's a warmer start to our week as a warm front pushes north of the region today. Overall while it was dry today, an isolated shower may spoil that for some this evening. A front passes from the west tonight returning temperatures to more seasonable levels on Tuesday with a few showers possible. Another front passes Tuesday night resulting in cooler temperatures by midweek.

Forecast Discussion

A warm front moves to our north today setting up a warmer start to the week. A front sits to our west which may result in an isolated shower later this afternoon. Overall most of the day is expected to be dry for most. After some morning clouds, we see a little more breaks of sun this afternoon.

The front to our west moves into SW Virginia tonight and during the day on Tuesday eventually setting up just to our south. Temperatures cool back to more seasonable levels on Tuesday with a few showers possible. Another front moves through Tuesday night bringing a drier and sunnier Wednesday. Colder air also makes a return on a brisk NW wind for Wednesday and even more so on Thursday. Winds diminish Wednesday night leading to some frost concerns early Thursday morning in the valley locations.

Friday is expected to be a notch warmer in advance of another front that moves through on Saturday. Saturday will feature a fair amount of clouds and a few showers as the front moves through. Clearing skies , cooler and breezy conditions finish up our weekend on Sunday.
