Nice Now, Hot Days Ahead… Monday PM Forecast Update #alwx @wvua23

Good Monday afternoon! Now that the weekend is over, the nice weather has returned today. Humidity is lower and skies are mostly sunny. It would have been nice to get this type of weather over the weekend. Expect a cool night tonight, with temperatures dropping into the lower 50s tonight.

We will gradually notice a warming trend over the next few days, with temperatures reaching the lower 80s Tuesday and Wednesday afternoons. Lows at night will remain in the 50s for Wednesday morning, but rise into the lower 60s by Thursday morning.

Upper air ridging will build into the area by late in the week and over the weekend, forcing air temperatures to reach the upper 80s to near 90 during the afternoon hours. As dewpoints rise, the mugginess will return. I can’t rule out a stray afternoon shower or storm by late week, much like a typical summer pattern.
