BLOG: Getting Warmer
High pressure setting up over southeast Va. will provide sunshine and a pleasantly warmer afternoon Sunday. High pressure moves off of the mid-Atlantic coast Sunday night and Monday as a weakening cool front approaches from the west. It will be fair and cool then a few more clouds will show up Monday from the weakening front. Otherwise Monday will be warmer with a south to southwest flow.
Clouds will cross the region ahead of the front Monday night and there will be a shower around. The front will reach the area on Tuesday but down-sloping westerly flow aloft and at the surface will dry out much of the moisture so warm and breezy with clouds and some sun and shower in spots. A weak area of high pressure will follow across the region on Wednesday with some sunshine and a warm afternoon.
High pressure moves offshore Thursday and the flow will turn into the south and as it stays warm. There may be enough low level moisture from the south to bring times of clouds and sun but still decent late winter day. By Friday an upper trough will track east across the Ohio Valley into the Appalachians causing clouds and some sun and will stay warm with a southwest flow.
