Tuesday was somewhat of a transitional day weatherwise for Central Virginia. It wasn’t cloudy, it wasn’t clear, it wasn’t rainy, it wasn’t dry ….. Today will be much more decisive.

The current surface map shows high pressure over the Ohio Valley in control of our weather..

On the National Forecast Map, high pressure remains in control over the next several days. A weak front gets nearby by the weekend creating slight chances of afternoon thunderstorms. Each day between now & then has a very slight chance of a scattered thunderstorm. Most folks will remain dry.

  1. For the weather map can we see the eastern half of the united states instead of the western half, as it doesnt apply to us directly? Just wanted to make you aware of that. thanks….

  2. Hi Cheryl, not sure exactly what you mean. ON our displays here both MACS and PC’s we see the entire map including the Eastern US. Are you not able to see that on your screen?

    Or do you mean you just want to see the eastern half only?

    My reasoning for putting the entire map up is to show weather systems that are on our way from out west. Many times I will refer to a pressure area over the Rockies, etc that will make its way toward us.
