Pinpoint Weather: Most stay dry today; rain likely mid to late week.


Many of us will start Tuesday with clouds, fog, and patchy drizzle.  For the afternoon, most, if not all, of Southwest Virginia should stay dry and bask in a little more sunshine compared to Monday.

A slight chance for a few spotty showers is in the forecast, mainly for the mountains.

Unfortunately, the break in significant rain chances will be short-lived. Rain chances ramp up mid to late week before most areas will have a chance to dry out from last week’s rains.

More moisture moves in from the south starting Wednesday, producing widespread showers and storms capable of producing heavy downpours.  This will likely lead to renewed or additional localized flooding and flash flooding in parts of Southwest Virginia.

River Flood Warnings are ongoing for the Dan River and Staunton River. 

Also, strong, gusty winds with any of the stronger storms could down any trees due to the still saturated soils. This may lead to power outages.

Stay safe and healthy.
