Decent Rain Chances Will Continue…Saturday Forecast Update #alwx @wvua23

Sevenday_640 (8).jpgGood Saturday evening! There were several clusters of showers and storms that impacted much of the state today, but currently the rainfall is beginning to fizzle out. Expect the rain to continue to diminish during the overnight hours, except for an isolated storm that could develop after midnight in the easternmost counties. Skies will be mostly cloudy tonight with lows in the low 70s.

Sunday will be much like today, as steamy conditions persist and highs will be topping out in the low 90s. Expect the cloud cover to remain and be on the look out for another good chance of showers and storms across much of the coverage area. Rainfall will be occurring mainly during the afternoon and into the evening hours, and it is likely that we will see locally intense rainfall in some locations. These amounts may reach up to two inches, due to these slow-moving developments, so make sure to keep your umbrella close by.

Another round of decent rainfall will continue on Monday, so plan on more scattered showers and storms throughout the day. Highs will remain in the lower 90s and lows will stay in the low 70s.

After Monday, we will begin to trend drier for the rest of the work week. Expect a lower chance for mainly heat-activated scattered showers and storms. These pop-ups will be random in location and timing, but plan on them to occur primarily after 1 p.m.

Towards the end of the week, models indicate that rain chances could increase again, but at this time it is much too early to be specific.
