Patrick Rockey’s Live VIPIR Forecast

The worst is almost over! The first day of school in Virginia was a miserable one, with temperatures well into the 90s and heat index values well into the triple digits for much of the day.

But a cold front arrives on Wednesday and will make its way across the region throughout the day. That could spark some scattered showers and thunderstorms and will usher in some milder weather. On Thursday, we expect highs back in the mid-to-upper 80s. That’s still warmer than normal, but a little more reasonable.

We’ll round out the work week (and school week) with partly cloudy skies and highs in the mid-to-upper 80s on both Friday and Saturday.

A more serious cold front arrives on Sunday, bringing us more scattered storms and highs back in the low-to-mid 80s on Sunday, Monday and Tuesday.

Weather & Health for Wednesday
Pollen: Moderate-High (Ragweed, Grasses)
UV Index: High
Air Quality: Moderate-High
Mosquitoes: High
