Pinpoint Weather: Calm weather Tuesday, rain from Zeta slated for later in the week

Weather Blog

The weather will be relatively calm for the next couple of days before our next rain maker impacts the region.

Clouds have cleared out of much of Southwest and Central Virginia for Monday. As more sunshine graces the region, temperatures will warm up into the upper 60s and low 70s for the afternoon. The quiet weather will remain in place for the evening with low temperatures in the 50s. Patchy fog will develop overnight and linger into the Tuesday morning commute.

While a few spotty rain showers are possible in the Alleghany Highlands Tuesday, many will stay rain free with variable cloud cover overhead. High temperatures will once again be in the upper 60s to low 70s.

Afternoon temperatures will be in the upper 60s and low 70s for Wednesday as well, but cloud cover will gradually increase. Rain chances will also increase, especially during the evening and overnight hours. This rain is associated with what is left of Zeta and another low pressure system. The wet weather will continue throughout much of Thursday, and a few showers may linger into Friday.

There is the potential for localized flooding Thursday, and winds will pick up as well. The WFXR Pinpoint Weather Team will continue to monitor the forecast and give you the latest information as we ahead toward the latter half of the week.

Once the wet weather comes to an end, we are looking at drier and cooler conditions for Halloween on Saturday.
