Weather Summary for SW VA...SE WV...and NW NC
National Weather Service Blacksburg VA
325 AM EDT Mon Aug 21 2017

With a high pressure system beginning to shift off of the Mid
Atlantic Coastline, a humid atmosphere remained in place
overnight. This allowed temperatures to remain rather mild,
settling in the 60s across the mountains and a few spots
remaining near 70 in the Piedmont. Skies remained scattered,
allowing a few pockets of fog to develop, especially in the river
valleys early Monday morning.

Temperatures and moisture will be on the increase Monday, as the
high pushes further out to sea and a another cold front
approaches from the northwest. As a result, a few afternoon
showers and thunderstorms will be possible, especially for those
along the ridges. This will unfortunately provide for some poor
viewing conditions during the nearly total solar eclipse, which
will occur between 1 and 4pm across the area. Expect afternoon
temperatures to decrease slightly during the event, ultimately
warming into the low 80s across the mountains to the low 90s
in the east.
