(WVVA) High pressure will continue to reinforce cool maritime air along the east face of the Appalachian Mountains. This will to create more clouds across eastern parts of our viewing area, while areas west of I-77 will see clear to partly cloudy skies and warmer daytime high temperatures. Partly to mostly cloudy skies are expected tonight with lows in the 40s and lower 50s.
Thursday will be almost a repeat of Wednesday with highs in the upper 60s and lower 70s. As we move into Friday, the easterly flow will continue and more moisture will move our way. A few isolated showers are possible, but the best chance for rain this week will be on Saturday.
A cold front will move our way during the day on Saturday, touching off rain showers. At this time, Matthew is forecast to move away from the South and North Carolina coast on Saturday. This would keep most of the moisture away from our area. High pressure will build in for Sunday and stick around through early next week. Seasonably cool temperatures are expected next week as well.
