Weather from NBC Storm Team 4 — Updated 6:35 a.m. Oct. 13, 2015 

A few showers before the noon hour can’t be ruled out, but most of the region will stay dry. This is all due to a cold front sweeping through the region during the afternoon. The latter part of the day will feature sunshine, warming temperatures and breezy conditions. By Tuesday night, temperatures fall into the 40s and 50s under clear skies. By Wednesday, high pressure begins to build in. This will give way to more sunshine, but temperatures only top out around 70 degrees. We will still have a little bit of a wind from time to time on Wednesday out of the west, gusting up to 20 mph at times.

Temperatures stay in the upper 60s on Thursday with plenty of sunshine. Another cold front will move through on Friday. It looks like a dry frontal passage but we will continue to watch it. The front’s main impact will be to drop the temperatures for the week — temperatures don’t look to move out of the 50s for Saturday and Sunday. We will have plenty of sunshine for the weekend and some breezy winds on Saturday, but it will be chilly. Saturday night into Sunday, we will have to watch for some frost that could mark the end of the growing season for much of the Shenandoah Valley and areas to the west.
