Nice Weekend; Stray PM Thundershower

Overall our weekend weather is shaping up fairly nice. After all the recent scattered showers and thunderstorms during this past work week, we get a "break" thanks to high pressure asserting itself in from the north. But, there is one caveat in the forecast. A weak frontal boundary lingers just to our south and east and combines with our normal summertime daytime heating to warrant a very slim chance of a late day shower or storm. Make it a good one because our afternoon shower and thunderstorm coverage gradually ramps back up again as we move into next week.

Discussion

Nice Weekend; Stray PM Thundershower

High pressure makes a run in from the north this weekend supplying a slightly drier air mass. Although temperatures continue to remain warm today and Sunday, overall it's a nice early August weekend forecast across western Virginia. But there is one catch. A weak front in the process of washing out just to the south and east is close enough to warrant a slight chance of a late day shower or thundershower. In reality, most stay dry this weekend.

Our nice weather will roll into Monday to start the new work week off. Similar weather is expected with warm afternoon temperatures under mostly sunny skies. Again, an isolated late day shower or thundershower is possible for a very select few. By Tuesday, Bermuda high pressure begins to reassert itself to our east and pumps in more moist air from the south. At the same time, a cold front begins to approach from the west but gets hung up across the Ohio River Valley. The combination of the increased moisture and the approaching front will increase our threat for afternoon showers and storms for the rest of the work week. Temperatures through this period will remain just above normal for the time of year.
