Forecast Last Updated at Monday, July 25, 2016 at 12:09PM

The Warm Story Continues

Very warm weekend temperatures continue this afternoon; however, I think we'll add isolated afternoon and early evening thundershowers to the plot. After today, conditions become more favorable for afternoon convection--we raise the stakes to "scattered, mostly afternoon showers and thundershowers". With more humidity and clouds Tuesday through Thursday, temperatures will a couple degrees less warm.

The Golf-O-Meter has temporarily become the Fest-O-Meter. RaysWeather.Com is the weather forecast partner of FloydFest, rated one of the best music festivals in the country. Floydfest happens Wednesday through Sunday (July 27-31), just south of Floyd, VA. For festival details see FloydFest.Com.

Forecast Discussion

We have settled into the most classic of Summer weather patterns in the Southeast--a persistent Bermuda High extending into the Southeast with fronts stalling to our north then fading off the map. Muggy, warm weather with popup afternoon showers and storms characterize the results. For forecasting, it's just a matter of tweaking the day to day wrinkles.

A front will reach Northern Virginia tomorrow then stall and fade off the map by Friday. The next front reaches VA by next Monday.

The weekend warmth continues today with only isolated afternoon thundershowers (a slight increase from recent days). Tuesday through Thursday, slight cooling aloft makes conditions more favorable for scattered mostly afternoon showers and storms. Temperatures back off slightly with increased humidity and clouds. For the rest of the week, don't expect much to change--plenty of dry hours but the daily threat of afternoon convection.
