Aloft, a short wave trough was moving from the Midwest into the Ohio Valley, with some mid and high level clouds moving towards the central part of the Commonwealth. This short wave trough will continue eastward today, bringing the threat of a few showers or storms to the I-64 corridor. Will maintain slight chance POPs here, with little if any activity expected further south. Highs will be in the mid 80s. An upper level ridge will build in across the area through the rest of the period, bringing mostly clear skies and warmer temperatures. Highs by Sunday will be in the mid to upper 80s, after a night of lows similar to tonight, generally in the low to mid 60s. .LONG TERM...(Sunday night through Friday) Issued at 353 AM EDT SAT AUG 19 2017 The long term forecast discussion will follow shortly.
