Few more showers today; nice rest of the week

A bit of a lull across most of the state this morning as round 1 which brought widespread soaking rain overnight is now exiting. The actual cold front now draped southwest to northeast across the Ohio Valley will swing through this afternoon leading to additional shower and thunderstorm chances. These will be quite scattered over western Virginia but may merge into a more organized line once hitting higher instability values along and east of i95 this evening---can't rule out an embedded strong thunderstorm or two with straight line winds being the greatest threat. 

Behind the front, high pressure builds in Wednesday and Thursday leading to cool, dry conditions. Still looks like some higher elevation locations in the Alleghenys see the first sub-50 degree lows of the season Wednesday night---just another step in our gradual decline of summer as we head towards fall (although warmer air will return this weekend).
