While Thursday will be very warm across the Commonwealth, with highs in the 60’s and 70’s, Friday will be even warmer with highs in the low to mid 80’s across Central and Southern Virginia! These temperatures are what we usually see well into the month of May! Temperatures will be a little cooler across the Shenandoah Valley, mountains, and Highlands, but I doubt we’ll hear anyone complaining about upper 60’s to mid 70’s.
Records on Friday range from the 70’s in the Valley to the low to mid 80’s east of the Blue Ridge. There’s a decent chance (at least 65 percent) that we could tie or break records by Friday afternoon, especially Richmond, Norfolk, and Washington, D.C.
