Clouds will give way to clear skies Friday night, setting us up for a spectacular fall weekend (a bit different than last year at this time). Read all about it in today's blog!

In 2009, this upcoming weekend marked our first measurable snowfall along the Blue Ridge Mountains and the Appalachians. We should have taken that as a sign!

Back to 2010, picture perfect weather returns for this weekend. After Friday's clouds and brief showers, skies clear during the overnight hours. Winds pick up out of the northwest Friday evening, drying us out and allowing temperatures to fall near 40 degrees Friday night in the Valley and in the mid to upper 30's in the higher elevations. Temperatures return to the mid 60's as highs on Sunday with mostly sunny skies and a brisk wind out of the northwest. It will feel like true, fall weather and you will likely need a light jacket if you're spending time outside!

After our fabulous weekend, clouds return on Tuesday ahead of a cold front. Showers are possible Tuesday night through early Thursday morning, with temperatures dropping from the upper 60's to the lower 60's through the week.

I think it's safe to say that fall is truly here!
