Strong high pressure will become centered over Virginia tonight, resulting in low temperatures by Saturday morning in the upper teens and low 20s. A mix of sunshine and very high thin clouds will yield a quick warm-up into the upper 40s and low 50s by Saturday afternoon.
A storm system will move into the area on Sunday, spreading rain across the area by late afternoon and evening. Rain totals will likely fall into the range of 0.50″ and 1″, with the rain ending before sunrise Monday. Monday will be a very warm and breezy day, with a record-tying high of 76 (1979).
A cold front will move through the area on Tuesday, bringing seasonally cool air back to the region. The forecast becomes more challenging Wednesday and Thursday, which just happens to be the most important couple of days over the next week. An elongated area of low pressure will develop along the Southeast and Mid-Atlantic coast on Wednesday, spreading rain and snow across Delaware, Maryland, Virginia, and the Carolinas. Surface temps currently appear to be too warm for any accumulation. A deep and cold upper-level trough will dig into the region on Thanksgiving Day, and there should be enough lift for scattered snow showers.
