A Warm and Active Pattern for the Next Week!

Good Wednesday Morning!

Yesterday was the tip of the iceberg with regards to how warm it could possibly get this week. A lot of sunshine greeted us as we left work and temperatures in many places up into the 40s. 

This morning, we wake up with temperatures elevation dependant once again around the region. Be sure to be prepared to run into cooler temperatures, but still not as cold as it has been. There will be mornings coming up that will feel more like late spring starts then winter!

Storm number one is currently in Texas and Louisiana bringing copious amounts of rain and that storm will arrive starting tomorrow. Today, a very weak disturbance to our north could spark a stray shower...but most will stay dry this afternoon with temperatures still climbing. Most neighborhoods will be up around 50 degrees.

We will be kept on the outer edge of this storm for a while, so even though Thursday brings a better chance of a shower....the majority of the precipitation will be off to our west. This first storm swings through Friday with a period of rain with some embedded thunder. 

We get a break on Saturday before another energy wave spins off the closed low early next week bringing us a better chance for a good soaking rain. This gradual melt of the snow will help us out, but there could be some high water problems if the rain lingers around the Two Virginia’s.
