Forecast Last Updated at Saturday, September 22, 2018 at 6:27PM
Fall officially arrives this evening at 9:54PM EDT. Today wasn't fall-like at all, but temperatures over the next day or so will slowly start transitioning closer to normal. For today, skies were mostly sunny, although a stray shower or thundershower can't be ruled out into tonight. Expect more of the same on Sunday, albeit with more cloud cover and somewhat cooler temperatures. Monday will be rather gray and cool with more showers possible.

A cold front will be sagging southward out of Virginia today, passing through the state later tonight and becoming stationary to our south for Sunday and Monday. Skies were mostly sunny today, although we can't rule out a stray shower or thundershower into tonight. As a moist wedge of high pressure builds in behind the front, clouds will be in great abundance for Sunday and Monday. Monday looks like the cloudier/cooler of the two days. Showers will be around through the period, but it won’t rain all the time.
The front retreats northward as a warm front late on Tuesday, followed by another front inbound from the west by late Wednesday. Yet another front will be here sometime next weekend.
As a result of this frontal parade, we expect showers to be most concentrated late Wednesday into Thursday, followed by a drier window later Friday into Saturday. Temperatures next week won’t approach the warmth of this past week.
