Forecast Last Updated at Sunday, May 1, 2016 at 7:06AM

Becoming More Unsettled

Showers and thundershowers will be the main features today. A warm front lifts across Southwestern VA keeping clouds around and sparking the unsettled weather. A cold front stalls to our west keeping showers and t-showers in the forecast for Monday as well.

The cold front finally creeps over the region Tuesday, removing the threat of t-showers and ushering in cooler temperatures. Wednesday provides a slight break in the clouds in between systems with daytime showers possible and cooler overnight temperatures.

We wrap up the week with continued clouds, showers, and even cooler temperatures. Sunshine returns Saturday afternoon as temperatures begin to rebound.

Merlefest concludes today with more great music and memories! While it won’t be raining all day, skies will be mostly cloudy and showers and thundershowers are a good bet. By this afternoon, it will be quite a bit warmer than Saturday, however. See our MerleFest Hour-by-Hour Forecast for details.

RelayWithRay.Com It's the craziest thing I have ever seriously considered doing... Beginning May 17, I'm running the Blue Ridge Parkway. See RelayWithRay.Com for details.

Forecast Discussion

There will be continued showers and thundershowers today as a weak warm front lifts north across the region. A cold front stalls to our west later today, keeping the threat of showers and thundershowers in the forecast through late Monday. The slowly advancing cold front does not pass over the Appalachians until Tuesday, then scrubbing thunder from the forecast.

Cooler air filters in Tuesday with lingering clouds and showers through the day. High pressure ridges in Wednesday allowing for some breaks in the clouds with even cooler temperatures and daytime showers. Our next cold front will already be en route from the Great Lakes Wednesday evening with increasing clouds overnight.

Temperatures become borderline chilly (depending on your definition of May standards) on Thursday as the cold front slides across the region. An upper level low keeps clouds and showers around Thursday into Friday. By Friday, low pressure develops off the VA coast with continued clouds, showers, and temperatures on the cool side. Saturday begins with clouds into the afternoon, then diminishing as the low moves into the Atlantic. Temperatures rebound slightly, yet remain cool.
