Forecast Last Updated at Saturday, August 18, 2018 at 6:19PM

Wet at Times, Salvageable

The weekend is highlighted by lots of clouds and scattered rain showers. On the bright side temperatures are kept in check thanks to the cooling effects of showers and lack of sunshine. Sunday, like Saturday has plenty of dry hours and less in the way of shower coverage. The unsettled pattern continues Monday and Tuesday before a rather potent cold front clears us out and cools things down beginning Wednesday... just wait!

Forecast Discussion

A front moves through the Ohio Valley tonight, flattens out and stalls near the VA/NC line Sunday, and retreats northwards as a warm front Monday. That front is followed by a distinct cool frontal passage early Wednesday morning.

The takeaway is an unsettled forecast now through Tuesday evening. Beyond today most of the action is limited to the afternoon and early evening hours. What's left on the board this evening fizzles tonight as it moves east, but the potential for a lingering overnight shower remains. Sunday, the system is somewhat spent so coverage of showers goes down a notch or two and we'll have a little more sun.

Monday and Tuesday, showers and storms are generally an afternoon and evening feature. I won't rule out a few rowdy ones Tuesday ahead of the aforementioned front.

After some lingering cloudiness Wednesday morning the atmosphere quickly dries out. A sprawling area of high pressure takes center stage for the remainder of the work week. Humidity levels come down dramatically leading to lots of sunshine, cool nights, and seasonably comfortable afternoons.
