(WVVA) A cold front is moving through the area on Monday evening. Showers and thunderstorms are expected ahead of the front early Monday evening. A few of the storms could be on the strong or even severe with the primary threat being damaging winds. The atmosphere will become more stable overnight and we're only expecting a few lingering showers that may last into early Tuesday morning.
Skies will begin to clear on Tuesday and temperatures will be cooler. Overnight lows by Wednesday morning will be in the 40s, with a few deeper valleys possibly dipping into the upper 30s. A strong upper level low will move our way on Wednesday afternoon. A few showers are possible late in the day, with rain chances increasing on Thursday and Friday.
Temperatures will be below normal as we end the week, with highs on Thursday struggling to get into the lower 60s. A few spots in the higher elevations potentially may not get out of the 50s. With cold air aloft, scattered rain showers and even a rumble of thunder is possible on Thursday and Friday afternoon.
The upper low will begin to weaken and warmer temperatures and drier conditions are expected by Sunday and Monday.
