Clouds dominated the region today as a cold front lingers just South of DC in Virginia.  Some extremely persistent isolated showers have been loafing around the Charlottesville area along the front, as shown on the radar image from 8:42  pm.  Even with the clouds, temperatures still managed to reach into the mid- to upper-70s today, with Reagan Washington National hitting 80°.  Read on past the break for your weekend forecast!

The frontal system to our South will begin to move back north as a warm front in the afternoon tomorrow, leading to similar conditions as today.  Fog will dominate the rush hour.  Extremely isolated showers cannot be ruled out along the front, but they should remain mostly to the west as today.  High temperatures should remain in the mid- to upper-70s under mostly cloudy skies.

Fog is another possibility Friday morning.  High temperatures should still reach the mid- to upper-70s before a new frontal system moves into the area from the west.  This cold front will bring with it showers & thunderstorms for Friday night into early Saturday morning.

Thanks to the cold front, the weekend is looking much cooler with temperatures closer to normal: around 65° on Saturday and lower on Sunday and Monday.  However, high pressure will persist throughout this time, bringing sunny skies all weekend.

The next chance of precipitation and storms will be Tuesday, when temperatures will also begin to warm up a tad before another cold front.
