Cloudy and not as cool tonight. Lows in the mid to upper 40s. South breezes continue.
A slow moving cold front approaches this weekend. We'll be on the warm side of the boundary, so temperatures will continue to stay mild, even with the cloud cover. Highs Saturday are forecast in the mid to upper 60s. The front will bring mostly cloudy conditions Saturday with only the slightest chance of a sprinkle or shower. Breezes could gust around 20mph.
Sunday will still be much warmer than normal as high temperatures will top out near 70 degrees! Look for mostly cloudy skies with a few chances of rain especially in the afternoon. The best chance of rain is Sunday late afternoon through Sunday night when you may even hear a rumble of thunder.
The front does look to clear the area by Monday morning, however there looks to be another piece of energy sliding along the frontal boundary that will keep clouds in place for Monday, with a chance of some showers for the Valley for the first half of the day. If you have travel plans east, towards D.C., Richmond, and to the coast expect to see steady showers with heavier rain at times. Temperatures Monday will cool back into the lower 50s.
Upslope snow showers are possible Monday night and early Tuesday, but that is only for the far western mountains. Sunshine is expected Tuesday and Wednesday for Christmas Eve and Christmas Day with high temperatures only around 40. No white Christmas this year.
