Skies will be partly cloudy overnight. Temperatures will dip into the 30s inland to near 40 along the coast.

A bit of a warm up on Monday with highs in the low 60s, which is 10 degrees above normal for this time of year. A stationary front will be situated over the area. This will bring us some milder temperatures, while north of the front will be much cooler with showers. Keeping a slight chance for a couple showers on the Eastern Shore, Middle Peninsula and Northern Neck. Just keeping a 20 percent chance because of this. Temperatures will stay fairly steady overnight in the mid to upper 50s.

A cold front will approach from the west on Tuesday bringing increasing rain chances as the day progresses. Temperatures will be very mild for this time of year with highs in the mid and upper 60s. It will be on the breezy side with winds out of the southwest at 15-20 mph. Rain totals of 0.5+” are possible with this frontal system. Once the front moves out late Tuesday, we’ll dry out and temperatures will plummet into the mid 30s overnight.

Expect sunshine on Wednesday with highs only reaching the mid 40s. Temperatures will then fall into the 20s overnight. BRR! Even colder on Thursday, to start the day. Air temperatures will be in the mid and upper 20s, but it will actually feel like the teens thanks to a gusty wind. Temperatures won’t warm up a whole lot. Expect highs in the upper 30s and low 40s. At least it will be sunny and dry!

Partly cloudy and a few degrees milder to end the work week. Highs will warm to the mid and upper 40s. Rain chances will increase on Saturday associated with an area of low pressure. Temperatures will be in the low 50s.
