Summer doesn’t officially begin until later this week, but you can’t tell the cute dog above that. He found a cool spot in the shade right in the lap of this lady enjoying a nice day at Johnson’s Senior Home in Roseland. For the first part of this week you’ll need plenty of shade as the temps will be hot today. Yesterday we reached an afternoon high of 90 degrees at 3:20 PM here in Greenfield at NCL-Nelson County LIfe Magazine. Upon the mountain at NCL-Wintergreen Nature Foundation they reached a Sunday high of 81 degrees around 1PM. We’ll see another hot day today & Tuesday but showers and storms move in Tuesday afternoon and evening moderating the temperatures for the remainder of the week.
On the current surface map below, high pressure will keep skies mostly sunny today with hot temperatures.

On the National Forecast Map, by afternoon high pressure still remains in control but a cold front begins approaching the area overnight and increases chances for storms in the afternoon Tuesday. A stray afternoon thunderstorm is possible late this afternoon with daytime heating, but most people will stay dry and not see any rain.
