A stalled frontal boundary sits across Northern Virginia. We’ll remain south of it today, and we can expect hot/muggy conditions courtesy of a southerly wind. Since the front is a bit further north of our area, rain chances will be slim…only isolated through the afternoon & early evening.
So, Harborfest plans shouldn’t be disrupted by rain. However, there could be a few additional showers that move into areas “north” of the Southside later tonight.
As far as the fireworks at Harborfest, rain isn’t a big factor…and they should take place without interruptions. Sunday brings a better rain chance due to the previously mentioned stalled front moving south & crossing our area throughout the day as a cold front.
It’ll trigger showers, and (based on the timing) it could also lead to slightly cooler temps. For now, we’re calling for low 80s. The best chances for rain will be after 4PM on Sunday…allowing most of Harborfest to be enjoyed without rain (but the very end of the event could get some rain).
The front will stall across NE NC on Monday, and it’ll help trigger even more rain kicking off the new workweek.
So, Monday looks to be the wettest of the next few days…and the coolest since we’ll be north of the front. Highs Monday will stay in the 70s.
