Meteorologist April Loveland's First Warning Forecast

Clouds will increase late tonight with temperatures falling into the mid 30s. Showers will start to move in from the southwest as an area of low pressure develops off the Carolina coast.

The coastal low will track to the northeast on Monday. Expect rain for most of the area early in the morning, with a wintry mix possible in our far northern communities like the Eastern Shore and Northern Neck. This is where we will have some colder air mixing in. Little to no accumulation is expected. If you're looking for the snow, the best chance will be up toward Richmond. If you have an early morning start, give yourself some extra time even though most areas will be dealing with rain. Expect showers to continue through the evening. It will be a cold day with highs in the mid and upper 40s. Winds will pick up out of the north as the day progresses with gusts up to 25 mph possible. Skies will turn partly cloudy overnight with lows in the low 30s.

High pressure will build in for the rest of the week and temperatures will gradually warm. Tuesday will be bitterly cold with 20 degree morning wind chills. Skies will be mostly sunny, but the sun won't help a whole lot. We will have a gusty northwesterly winds at 15-20 mph, with higher gusts. This will bring our wind chills down into the 30s. Brr! Lows will fall into the 20s and low 30s.

Another cold start Wednesday with 20 degree wind chills. Skies will once again be mostly sunny and temperatures will warm to the low 50s.

The warming trend will continue on Thursday with highs in the mid and upper 50s with dry conditions and plenty of sunshine.

Even warmer to end to the work week as highs soar to near 60. Skies will be mostly sunny.

Moisture will start to increase for the weekend ahead of our next rain maker. Expect partly cloudy skies on Saturday with highs in the low and mid 60s with scattered showers possible on Sunday.
