The clouds will thicken overnight, with a few light showers moving in from the north. Overnight lows will average in the upper 40s and low 50s. Any fog that forms will be light and patchy.
A cold front sliding through the area will bring a big temperature change the next few days. Waves of low pressure moving along the front will increase our rain chances from time to time. A few showers will be around tomorrow, first to the north and then through the metro and southern Virginia during the afternoon and evening. In the metro, a high in the upper 50s will likely occur during the midday hours, with temperatures lowering to the low 50s by evening. Readings in the 60s are possible from the Tri-Cities to the North Carolina line.
A cool northeast wind will lock in a cool wedge over the Mid-Atlantic on Monday. Highs will only be in the mid and upper 40s. Skies will be overcast with periods of rain or drizzle. More significant rain is possible later Tuesday into Wednesday as a front arrives from the west. Total rain could exceed 1/2 inch over the entire area.
After highs around 60° Wednesday, cooler air will return for the end of the week. Another spell of dry weather is likely, with a good amount of sunshine. At first glance, the weather looks great for the Dominion Christmas Parade next Saturday, although it will be a bit chilly in the morning!
