24 HOUR FORECAST: Much cooler with areas of frost in higher elevations; 50’s in the Blue Ridge Saturday!?


SHOCK TO THE SYSTEM! After WEEKS of above average temperatures and starting off October near 100 degrees, we are FINALLY done with the heat!

Overnight lows will fall into the 40s across the Piedmont and Shenandoah Valley. There will even be some mid to upper 30s across portions of Northwestern Virginia, and Central and Western Maryland — especially higher elevations. Areas of frost will be possible.

On Saturday, highs could get suck in the 50s along the Blue Ridge with low clouds and areas of light rain or drizzle. This is due to a northeast wind that pushes moisture up against the mountains – a wedge type scenario that we typically see during the cooler months.
