Weather! Bumpy start to the week

Some clouds and lingering cooler weather from this weekend will start the week a bit cooler than many would like, but we’ll be back in the 80s before you know it. One peek at summer, coming up!

Truthfully, I’m probably overstating that a little bit – this week is going to be pretty great across the board.

A warm front will lift through Virginia over the next two days, bringing warmer, more humid air into the state, and a reminder of what summer-like can feel like.

Monday: Monday will be the last cool day in about a week, as temperatures peak near 70 after lows near 50 overnight. Skies will stay partly cloudy until the front passes, however. The warm air really begins to filter in Monday night – lows only dip to 60 Monday night.

Monday Squirrelcast (vs. Bowie, 6:35pm): It won’t be perfect, but it’s looking like a decent night for baseball. Partly cloudy skies will dominate, with a passing shower possible during the later part of the game. Temps will start out in the upper 60s and only cool into the mid 60s

Tuesday: After an ugly morning, conditions should rapidly improve during the day. Mostly cloudy skies with some light showers will give way to the some later clearing, with temperatures peaking in the low 80s. Showers, accompanied by the chance for some thunderstorms, return to the forecast around sunset, and overnight lows fall to near 60.

Tuesday Squirrelcast (vs. Bowie, 6:35pm): Scattered showers are a threat for Tuesday night’s game, but otherwise look for more great baseball weather. Temperatures at first pitch will start near 80, slipping into the low 70s by the ninth inning.

Temperatures in the 80s with chances for some popup showers will run all week long. Once we get past Tuesday the rain threat becomes a bit smaller, and lots of sun will prevail.
