Thursday, May 28

Partly to mostly cloudy with showers and storms developing again this afternoon in a widely scattered fashion. It will be very warm and humid again with highs in the mid-upper 80s. We have an approaching cold front and weak instability that should kick up some showers and storms again this afternoon. Unfortunately, it won't be enough to develop widespread showers and storms so not everyone will receive the needed rain. In the coming days the rain chances should back off as a ridge of high pressure begins to build back in. Sunrise: 6:01 a.m., Sunset: 8:23 p.m. Wind: S/SW at 5-10 m.p.h. Thursday night: Some evening storms then partly cloudy and dry overnight. Lows in the mid-upper 60s. Winds from the southwest at 5 mph.

Friday, May 29

Partly cloudy, warmer and humid with a slight chance for some showers. Highs in the upper 80s to 90. We have a ridge of high pressure in the upper atmosphere that strengthens and builds across the area which theoretically should suppress shower and storm development today. We are not going to say there won't be any storms firing later today, but there should be a noticeable decrease in coverage from previous afternoons. Sunrise: 6:01 a.m., Sunset: 8:24 p.m. Wind: SE at 5-10 m.p.h. Friday night: Partly cloudy with an isolated shower during the evening. Lows in the mid-upper 60s. Winds from the south at 5-10 mph.

Saturday, May 30

Partly cloudy, very warm and humid with a slight chance for an afternoon shower or storm to form. Highs in the upper 80s-lower 90s. We basically expect a mainly dry day with just a small chance a storm could form this afternoon. If you have plans to spend the time outdoors, you should enjoy a great but hot day! Sunrise: 6:00 a.m., Sunset: 8:24 p.m. Wind: S at 5-15 m.p.h. Saturday night: Evening shower?

Sunday, May 31

Partly cloudy, hotter and humid. Highs in the lower 90s. Whew! It should be a hot afternoon and with the ridge of high pressure aloft, we should not really see any storms form. Tomorrow with the approach of a cold front, there should be a little increase in thunderstorm development. Sunrise: 6:00 a.m., Sunset: 8:25 p.m. Wind: W/SW at 5-10 m.p.h. Sunday night: Partly cloudy

Monday, June 1

Partly cloudy, hot and humid with some showers and storms possible especially in our northern counties. Highs in the lower 90s. Here comes the next cold front which should develop some showers and storms this afternoon across Southern Virginia and the northern part of our state. In the coming days, we should see increasing chances for rain as we see it at this time. Sunrise: 6:00 a.m., Sunset: 8:26 p.m. Wind: SW at 10-15 m.p.h. Monday night: Evening showers north?

Tuesday, June 2

Partly to mostly cloudy with some showers and storms possible this afternoon and into the evening. Highs in the upper 80s-90. There is some debate amongst computer models whether or not the approaching cold front will move into the state. As of right now, it appears the cold front will remain to our north which should keep us in the hot and humid air mass along with the chance for some storms. Sunrise: 5:59 a.m., Sunset: 8:26 p.m. Wind: SW at 5-10 m.p.h. Tuesday night: Some evening storms

Wednesday, June 3

Scattered showers and storms more likely. Highs in the upper 80s. Sunrise: 5:59 a.m., Sunset: 8:27 p.m. Wind: SW at 5-10 m.p.h.
