but tonight, we're dry. overnight is when the rain moves in to our region and then we'll see widely scattered showers on tuesday. as i said, we're warm with some of the rain on wednesday. and then we start to dry out as we get towards the end of this workweek. temperatures right now 50, right around the 50 degree mark. we have pretty much been there throughout the afternoon. might stay right around this temperature as we continue into the overnight. i don't think we will drop too much further. mostly overnight lows will be in we'll have the clouds move in and we'll have the rain move in. now, nothing on the radar right now. this in the central shenandoah valley, not even hitting the ground. but look at this, we have gotten a lot of rain coming through the mid western parts of the united states. and this is just slowly moving to the east. as i said, we'll start to see this rain moving in here after midnight, but it's really going to break up by the time we get
need the light rain jacket. definitely an umbrella, but leave the gloves and hat at home. temperatures tomorrow mid-60s despite the rain and cloud cover. once the rain tapers off to more widely scattered showers in the afternoon, i do believe always fog will settle in, so you make rour way home from work, there could be some dense fog spots out there. so 4:00 a.m., we're seeing a few light showers out there. if you're an early riser, you will see a few light showers. and then we get to tuesday morning, againu showers here and there. the heaviest rain and the moths rain i think we will see will be north and west of town pretty much from winchester up to mason dixon line. those areas could see a little over an inch for the next few days, but i think we will be under an inch. we will get a little break on tuesday. so one coming tonight through tomorrow and then we'll get a break tuesday night into wednesday morning and then another round of rain coming wednesday morning through about
evening. outdoor planner tonight, no worries because showers tomorrow morning, fog tomorrow night. and then by wednesday morning, rain will be on the way. not nly do we have rain, we have breezy conditions. pretty windy by tuesday and we stay windy wednesday but with the southerly wind, that means the temperatures will go up. so if you're planning for this workweek, deck races, wait until the end of the week. tree shopping on saturday chbd you may have to delay some of the tree lighting ceremonies until thursday or friday. but saturday looking good. of course a little cooler. then by sunday, we have the rain moving back into the area. but thursday and friday, not bad. saturday not bad, temperatures around 50. and then rain possibly a lot of it, keep our fingers crossed, sunday into monday, also on tuesday. and of course doug will really go over your commute time for tomorrow because this rain is a little tricky. and just a little bit of rain can mess up the commute. so he will talk about the
