NOWCAST THROUGH LATE MORNING:
Mainly clear with a few clouds and patchy fog.
6am: Mainly Clear 60°
8am: Partly Cloudy 64°
10am: Partly Cloudy 71°

A TWINGE OF FALL:
Temperatures start in the 50s in many locations this morning under a mainly fair sky. A weak trough over the region may touch off a few clouds today but temperatures will be quite comfortable in the low 80s with a light northeast wind. Tonight, the flow becomes more southerly which will warm us back into the mid 80s for Tuesday.

MID-WEEK RAIN:
Unsettled weather returns by Wednesday as a cold front approaches the Commonwealth. Rain chances look likely Wednesday night and through the day on Thursday. Highs will drop from the mid 80s into the mid 70s on Thursday as clouds and rain hold temperatures at bay.

FALL-LIKE WEEKEND:
Behind the cold front will come very refreshing temperatures for the upcoming weekend. Under sunny skies, daytime highs will reach the low to mid 70s. Overnight lows will dip into the low to mid 50s. These values will be running 10-12 degrees below average!

  1. Chris, can you possibly shed some light on the record-shattering upcoming frigid winter that has been predicted? I have seen several “maps” that have half the US blocked in colors that read “above normal snow fall.” What are your own personal thoughts on this? Do you believe it will be worse than last winter? I sure hope not! Thank you!

    • As usual, there are a number of bogus internet posts predicting a harsh winter. It’s what I call “hypecasting” – create fear and curiosity to gain likes and follows for their websites. The bottom line is this winter may prove to be colder and snowier than we usually see but to predict something this far in advance is really just guessing. It is still Summer after all. Your best bet is to be prepared for whatever may happen and trust local, reliable sources for weather information.
