CWS Forecast: Ridge and Valley Region 

Hope you liked the pleasant weather this weekend! Sunshine and hot temperatures will be the story for the Commonwealth going into the new week. Today will likely be the sunniest day of the week for many, with temperatures climbing quite hot for this time of year. This southerly flow will bring temperatures well above average for an extended period. Expect unseasonably hot and humid conditions for your Tuesday and Wednesday, possibly breaking daily records. There will be a mix of sun and clouds with an isolated chance of showers and thunderstorms, mainly in northern and western parts of the Commonwealth. Not everyone will receive rain in the region. Thursday will feature plenty of sunshine before the next round of unsettled weather begins. Going into Friday and the weekend, it will remain quite hot. Expect the possibility of showers and thunderstorms for the Commonwealth next weekend before a cold front moves through. Be prepared for extreme heat all week. Make sure to stay cool and hydrate!
