StormTracker 8: Cloudy skies ahead of Tuesday rain

RICHMOND, Va (WRIC) -- The cloudy skies we’ve dealt with all day will stick with us as we head overnight and through Monday.  With the extra clouds will keep our overnight lows in the middle 40s with light winds. 

The clouds are here ahead of a low pressure system that will bring in rain.  Cloudy skies will be around all of Monday with winds out of the southeast.  Those winds will keep highs in the upper 60s, only a few degrees shy of the average.  Rain arrives as we head past the midnight hour.

Light showers are expected through most of Tuesday with mainly cloudy skies.  The rain will take a lot of pollen out of the air, so allergy sufferers will feel a bit better.  We will also see some cooler temperatures as highs struggle to get out of the middle to lower 60s.

Showers can linger through the morning hours of Wednesday, but we could see some partial clearing by the afternoon.  We will pick up around an inch of rain as this system pushes through.  High temperatures on Wednesday are pleasant in the middle 70s.

We can see some sunshine as we head through Thursday afternoon, but we will keep some clouds across the area.  High temperatures will begin to level out in the lower 70s Thursday, which is seasonable for this time of the year.

Rain is back for Friday as a quick system pushes in during the morning hours.  It won’t linger for long, but we’ll see cloudy skies as highs stay in the lower 70s.

We’ll begin to see some clearing as we kick off the weekend, so partly cloudy skies are in store for Saturday. Temperatures will feel very pleasant as the top out in the lower 70s.

We’ve got even more sunshine on our Sunday afternoon as some high pressure builds into the region.  It will once again feel very nice as highs make it to the middle 70s with light winds.  It’s looking like a great weekend to get out and about in RVA!
