.SHORT TERM...

Shortly after 2 PM, a band of thunderstorms extended from near
Jamestown to Lewisburg and Waynesboro and was continuing to push
southward and eastward at 20 to 25 knots. These storms were
located along a cold front that pushed southward out of Kentucky
during the mid-to-late morning hours.

Still expect showers and thunderstorms to diminish from the
northwest overnight, with just a slight chance for showers and
storms over our extreme southern and eastern areas by Tuesday.

High pressure builds southward from the Midwest and Great Lakes
region, across the Ohio River and Tennessee River Valleys, Tuesday
through Wednesday. Surface dew points drop into the 50s by
Wednesday, with highs only topping out between 80 and 85 degrees
most areas. This is followed by some pleasantly cool weather
Wednesday night, as low temperatures drop into the upper 50s to
around 60 degrees.

.LONG TERM...

A warming trend resumes late in the week into early next week, as
a weakening cold front sags southward into our neck of the woods
and stalls out over, or just south of, the Mid-State. Our surface
dew points rebound back to near 70 degrees over the weekend, as
head back into more typically sticky summertime conditions. In
addition, scattered thunderstorms come back into the weather
picture, with chance pops making a reappearance for the Saturday
through Monday period. Meanwhile, temperatures hang around climatological
norms, with highs mainly in the mid to upper 80s.
