Forecast Last Updated at Saturday, October 22, 2016 at 7:12AM

A Nice Fall Weekend

It will be a rather nice day across the foothills, with pleasantly cool temperatures, and some occasionally gusty winds, especially near the Blue Ridge. Skies will generally be sunny, though lee side clouds will develop at times. Temperatures for Sunday will be considerably warmer under sunny skies. By Monday it will get flat-out warm again with highs in the upper 70s. We cool off Tuesday and Wednesday behind a dry cold front. By Thursday a rapidly moving storm system of Pacific origin may bring some rainfall to the region.

The RaysWeather.Com 2016-17 Winter Fearless Forecast was released Saturday morning--average to slightly above normal temperatures; less than average snow.

Forecast Discussion

Today will generally be pleasant over the foothills. Winds will be gusty at times, especially near the Blue Ridge and over the lakes. Lee side clouds will develop from time to time. This sometimes happens with a strong jet stream inducing "mountain waves". Otherwise it will be sunny.

Temperatures rebound by about 10 degrees for Sunday, and another 8 degrees or so ahead of a dry cold front on Monday as downslope flow lifts highs into the upper 70s. Cooler, albeit sunny conditions follow for Tuesday and Wednesday.

By Thursday a fast moving storm system of Pacific origin will approach from the west. It’s looking a little wetter than it did yesterday, and a chance of rain has been added to the forecast for parts of Thursday and Friday. There is still plenty of uncertainty on the strength and timing of the system, but I think we’d all agree that rain would be a good thing at this point.
