A Good Week Ahead for Northern Virginia

By: WxGeekVA , 4:22 PM GMT on December 11, 2011

Good day everybody. Today I will be making my first blog entry. I have been meaning to create one for a long time, but I have never gotten around to it.

The main topic of my blog is going to be weather in Northern Virginia and other important events around the world. Other things will be covering is Hurricane Season (when applicable), and I will be providing entries about the issue of climate change.

But anyway, back to the topic of today. The weather for Northern Virgina looks to be quite good through late this week. A large ridge is in place over West Virginia and Kentucky, as seen in the image below:

This ridge will remain in place through at least Friday, when a cold front associated with a storm system currently located over Washington State and Oregon:

This system will be taking the long way east over the Southwest and will be directed over the Midwest come mid-week. As this system tracks north-northeast a trailing cold front will develop and slowly move east. Some severe weather is possible over the Southeast next week, with gusty thunderstorms in squall lines possible:

Until then, the weather will be quite nice, with temperatures just a little higher than seasonable norms. Expect high temperatures in the upper 40s through Tuesday, then in the low to mid 50s until the front moves through Friday afternoon. Lows will be in the 30s dropping to the upper 20s in spots. Overall, this may be the last nice week for a while, as a series of storm systems will begin to come in from the Pacific and we will enter an unsettled weather pattern come Christmas week:

I will have daily updates from now on, unless there is a significant event occurring.
