The summer heat keeps on going.
Patchy dense fog that developed overnight will linger around in portions of the New River Valley and the Alleghany Highlands. This fog should lift before 10:00 a.m. Hot and humid conditions will return for Sunday with temperatures looking warmer than Saturday’s highs. Remember to stay hydrated if you plan on being outdoors for a prolonged period of time. While much of the area is expected to stay dry, there is a slight chance for isolated showers in our northern-tier counties (Highland, Bath, Rockbridge). These will develop during the early evening hours and will quickly taper off.
While temperatures will stay on the warm side for the new work week, rain chances will also return to the forecast. Some of the showers and storms could be remnants of Barry.
Barry made landfall just before 11:00 p.m. on Saturday near Intracoastal City Louisiana before weakening to a Tropical Storm. Barry is our first hurricane of the 2019 season and is now tracking north into central Louisiana. The track will continue north through Central Louisiana and stay on the western edge of the Mississippi. The storm will continue moving north into Arkansas and Missouri as it weakens further.
Southwest and Central Virginia could see some remnants of Barry sometime next week. Heavy rainfall is possible, but will not compare to the rain that has caused flooding in Louisiana.
