WTVA Severe Weather Authority Blog

The WTVA Severe Weather Authority has a summary of what you can expect in the coming days.

Temperatures fall throughout the day

As a frontal boundary moves through the region during the day, expect temperatures to be widely variable from place to place throughout the day. We will mostly begin with temperatures in the upper 60s to lower 70s. A few spotty showers are likely as well, mostly north of Highway 278.

As the day advances, we will see this front slowly push through the area from north to south. So areas across the north likely see temperatures fall all day long. Some across the south, where the front won't pass until the afternoon, will warm up a bit more ahead of the front's passage. This means high temperatures will range from the lower and mid-60s across the north, occurring early in the morning; to the lower and mid-80s across the south, occurring later in the afternoon. Rainfall totals will be very minimal, likely no more than a tenth of an inch in most locations. 

Into the night, we'll see clouds linger with temperatures falling into the upper 40s and lower 50s. Then into your Tuesday, our front will stagger across our southern counties. Therefore, we keep rain chances in the forecast, likely with greater potential in areas along and south of US Highway 82. Highs on Tuesday will range between the lower 60s and lower 70s with the warmest temperatures over the southern half of the area. Rainfall totals shouldn't exceed an inch. 

We will begin our Wednesday with partly to mostly cloudy skies. And temperatures will likely dip into the upper 40s. Throughout the day, clouds will gradually push out of the area. But I don't believe we will get rid of it all. Temperatures climb into the mid-60s. A few sprinkles are possible in the morning. But most, if not all of us, will remain dry all day long. 

We remain dry into Thursday morning with temperatures in the mid-40s. Skies will be partly cloudy all day long with a few areas of sunshine in the afternoon. Highs climb into the mid-60s. 

Friday and Saturday will bring additional rain chances, along with slightly warmer temperatures as a frontal boundary pushes northward into our area. We'll start out our Friday with temperatures in the lower 50s. Then throughout the day, we'll climb into the mid-70s with partly to mostly cloudy skies and a few scattered showers. These showers will linger into Saturday with temperatures dipping only into the mid-50s early in the morning. As this front slowly drives back to the south, highs only reach the upper 60s with scattered showers. 

This will leave us a bit cooler and drier into Sunday with partly sunny skies. We'll start our Sunday with temperatures in the mid-40s. Then by the afternoon, highs will reach the upper 50s and lower 60s.
