We arrived at my parents’ house last night and will hang around the Northern Neck of Virginia today.
I stayed up until 3 or so chatting with my mother, so I have no idea what this morning’s weather looked like. It is cool, still, and sunny at this time.

The surface pressure chart shows high pressure and no strong pressure gradients over the state today. The RAP shows that this trend will continue for at least the next six hours.
