Two seasonal, sunnier days before late week rain - clipped version

CHARLOTTESVILLE, V.A. (WVIR) - High pressure overhead today is bringing us at least partial sunshine. Highs will be comparable to seasonal averages. Clear skies tonight will allow for colder overnight lows, near or below freezing. Watch for patchy frost tomorrow morning. Thursday afternoon will see similar conditions to today.

Friday will start out dry with clouds gradually increasing. Temperatures will be in the mild, lower 60s ahead of a cold front. This front will bring rain showers by Friday afternoon. It looks like the will be a window of dry time late Friday to early Saturday as this first batch of rain moves out. However, more rain is expected by midday Saturday as low pressure moves across the region. The heaviest, steadiest rain, as of now, looks to come through Saturday night. Near an inch of rain is expected. During this time, temperatures will also be much cooler, dropping to the 40s for highs.
