A warming trend into the weekend. That's likely music to everyone's ears. Mornings will still be a little brisk but sunshine will help to warm temperatures up. We'll see highs in the upper 60s tomorrow. It will be the lower 70s by Saturday.

Our stretch of nice and warm fall days will come to an end as a series of systems send showers and storms our way. The first round will arrive as a cold front from the Midwest and tropical moisture put the squeeze on the Commonwealth. The best chances will be across southeastern counties. We'll catch a break during the day on Sunday. Sunshine will return and temperatures will be rather pleasant in the lower 70s. Temperatures will spike Monday before a stronger front arrives. This system will bring better chances for widespread rain and storms. Heavy rain and gusty winds will be possible Monday night into Tuesday as the front crosses. Cooler air will filter in once again later next week. Lows will drop back into the upper 30s and lower 40s with afternoon temperatures around 60°.
