Hey, y’all. we’re going to swing by Richmond for a little forecast fun today.
At 854PM, ET, Richmond was reporting a temperature of 67 degrees with overcast skies. There was a weak surface wave producing the swath of clouds from northern to southwestern Virginia. The weak wave was embedded within broader high pressure, and is grabbing moisture from the return flow at the back edge of the ridge.
A stronger, reinforcing dome of high pressure will move out of the Great Lakes and overwhelm the surface wave. Unfortunately, the advance of the ridge will not necessarily be frontal, and the lingering moisture will be trapped over Virginia. Despite the high pressure at the surface, the mid level instability will lead to the continued expectation of overcast skies with a very weak undercutting trough developing off shore to insist upon the chance for light rain.
