Tonight our skies will turn mostly
clear with lows around the middle 50s.
Winds will be light from the north.
High pressure across the Great Lakes
will keep our skies sunny Sunday
morning, but we'll turn partly sunny
during the afternoon thanks to cooler
air aloft in the atmosphere. There may
even be an isolated shower or
thundershower Sunday afternoon; with

the best chance being across the New
River Valley and far southwestern
Virginia. High temperatures Sunday are
forecast near 80; that's about 8
degrees below normal for this time of
the year. The TITAN forecast model is
indicating a better chance of scattered
showers and thundershowers next week.
Long range models are actually
indicating a decent soaking of rain
next week, with rain amounts increasing
