Heavy rainfall will still be impacting portions of Southwest Virginia as we head into the evening hours. Rain chances will start to taper off before midnight. Pockets of dense fog will start to develop across the region.
While scattered showers and storms are expected for Monday, the activity won’t be as widespread as the rain from Sunday. Flooding will still remain a concern since much of Monday’s rainfall is projected to fall over our northern counties (Highlands, Bath, Rockbridge). These areas have already received a hefty amount of rainfall from both Saturday’s and Sunday’s events. The ground will be saturated so the rainfall might not soak in. Showers and storms will come down from the north and move along and east of the Blue Ridge.
While activity will be scattered, there will be places on Monday that will not receive rain. Places that do see rain could received up to two inches of rainfall. Once again, the main concern will be flooding.
Isolated showers are possible Monday evening into Tuesday due to a cold front, with some showers lingering into Tuesday morning. Variable cloud cover can be expected for the rest of the day with temperatures slightly cooler (upper 70s/low 80s).
