Chilly temps and rain chances

Good Friday, folks. We are kicking off the weekend with a November feel in the air. This setup will keep chilly temps around, but will also bring rain chances back into the Commonwealth.

Let’s begin with today and roll forward. Lows this morning will be in the mid and upper 30s for parts of the region, bringing a touch of frost in the cold valleys. Clouds will increase this afternoon as temps hit the middle 50s for highs.

Those clouds are ahead of a fast-moving disturbance that will bring a few showers in here. Those are in an out well before daybreak and I have you set to do some tracking:

As clouds clear by Saturday morning, temps drop back into the 30s with patchy frost possible in the cold valleys. Afternoon highs reach the 50s as a lot of clouds linger.

The setup from Sunday into next week actually looks like a winter one. Several systems will move in from the southwest, bringing waves of chilly rain to the region:

If that same setup presents itself this winter, major snow and ice would accompany it.

Frosty cold mornings will follow that up into the middle of next week with a seasonal chill continuing for the rest of next week.

There’s a strong signature for cold showing up next weekend into the following week. Here’s how the GFS gets the ball rolling:

The GFS Ensembles follow that up with additional cold shots:

Have a fantastic Friday and take care.
