A cold front will offer ‘some’ relief in the rainfall department across Northern and Western Virginia, but very small amounts elsewhere.
Forecast Breakdown: This Evening into Tonight
Rain will move across the Northern and Western portions of the state late this afternoon and continue into early Tuesday morning. Areas along and west of the Blue Ridge may pick up some decent rainfall amounts, up to an inch possible in some locations.
Tuesday morning, the front will clear the area and the wind direction will shift to the North-Northeast, this will develop overrunning precipitation. Additional showers will develop along the Blue Ridge with a cool wedge across the area.
Model Total Rainfall
While this model does not show much rain across Eastern Virginia, I think we could have showers around. A low deepening off the coast and an onshore flow should produce rain showers Tuesday into Wednesday. ANY amount of rain helps at this point!
