Weather! Sunny skies to start the week

While we start the week with sunny skies, a low pressure system moving into the Great Lakes and New England will make things a bit unsettled by the time we reach Wednesday.

While fog is setting in late tonight, high pressure located over New England will help keep central Virginia basking in the sun to start this week. However, a low pressure system moving from the Great Lakes into New England will displace the high b mid-week, bringing showers and a chance of thunderstorms back into the picture.

Monday: Partly to mostly sunny skies will be the story today. The cold front that moved through over the weekend has brought some cooler air back into the picture. Temperatures will start in the mid 50s this morning, with some scattered fog across parts of the region. The fog will burn off through the morning; look for a high near 75. Lows tonight will slide back into the mid 50s.

Tuesday: Some of the heat returns as winds turn to the southwest and highs peak near 80. A warm front approaches and will trigger some isolated thunderstorm development through the afternoon and evening hours. Some additional cloudcover will keep temperatures warmer overnight, as lows only fall into the low 60s.

Wednesday: The low moves into New England, forcing the high out to sea and dragging a cold front through Virginia. Clouds will increase through the morning, with showers beginning not long after sunrise. There may be some periods of thunderstorms as well, as the rain continues through the afternoon and evening, finally ending overnight. Temperatures peak in the mid 70s before dipping back into the mid 50s Wednesday night.

Once the rain wraps up, sunny skies and cooler temperatures return for the rest of the week and into next weekend. Highs in the 70s and dry weather will prevail.
