A Pretty Nice Sunday

High pressure has helped keep the rain away (to our south) this weekend and it looks like today and Monday
should be dry. Two lows, one over New England and another to our south, could bring rain to the area from late Monday into Tuesday as a warm front will pass over the area. The best chance of rain all week will be Tuesday as a combination of heat and humidity could bring a chance of thunderstorms with heavy downpours. The first round of storms would be Monday night but the heavy thunderstorms may be midday Tuesday. Another high should build in by Wednesday and bring sunshine and lower humidity for a few days. -Frank

Here's the WSVA AccuWeather Forecast

A blend of clouds and sunshine this afternoon. High 77. Winds south-southeast 4-8 mph.
Cloudy tonight. Low 63.
More clouds than sun tomorrow. High 75.
Monday night: showers and thunderstorms possible. Low 65.
Tuesday: considerable cloudiness with a shower or heavy thunderstorm in the area; humid.
