As Good As It Gets

The forecast for the next seven days is about as good as it gets. High pressure is entrenched across the region through the period with no rain in sight. Temperatures are warmer as we start the new week then cool back closer to normal towards the end of the week.

Forecast Discussion

High pressure remains in control of our weather throughout next week as warmer air moves in from the west and southwest for the first half of the week. As a result, temperatures climb above normal through Thursday. The very slight mention of rain that we had been advertising on Wednesday has been removed from the forecast. The weak front that would have brought this rain appears to be too weak to warrant even that slight chance now as rain chances stay confined well to our north and east across northern and eastern Virginia. Temperatures do cool back closer to normal by the end of next week and upcoming weekend. Right now, we will keep next Saturday dry as another front will be approaching from the west by this timeframe, but model disagreement exists on when it reaches our area.

In the tropics, Hurricane Sam is a major hurricane over the open Atlantic. Sam should move north and east of the Leeward Islands and Puerto Rico and toward Bermuda as a major hurricane through next week.
