The storm system that brought us gusty winds, heavy rain, and even a few tornado warnings, has finally exited the region. Gusty northwest winds will drag in cooler and drier air. Winds could gust as high as 45 to 50 MPH across the highest elevations. Most locations will see wind gusts 30 to 40 mph.
By late in the week, a broad upper-level low-pressure system will dive from the Rockies Region into the Lower Mississippi Valley, then move northeast into the Appalachians. Heavy rain (possibly some thunderstorms) will be possible along a warm front late Thursday night into Friday. The Upper-Level Low will meander across portions of the Midwest and the Northeast through the weekend, bringing rounds of showers and gusty winds.
The latest model data suggests around 0.50″ across Southeastern Virginia with locally 2 inches of rain across the Shenandoah Valley and Piedmont Region. Thunderstorms are possible along the warm front and a few of these storms could become strong or severe. Isolated to scattered showers will remain in the forecast through Saturday.
