Pinpoint Weather: Cold front Friday will bring cooler air to Southwest Virginia for the weekend

Weather Blog

The remnants of Sally will continue to push north and east Friday morning, and fair weather is slated for the next several days.

A few straggling showers will linger in Southside Virginia and the Piedmont for early Friday morning, but much of the rain is tapering off. Creeks and streams have risen in these areas due to the periods of heavy rainfall from Thursday. Rivers will also be on the rise, especially the Dan River. However, major impacts are not expected. Additional flooding is not expected for Friday, and rain chances are fairly low.

A cold front will sweep through Southwest and Central Virginia during the day. An area of high pressure will build in behind the font, meaning fair weather for the region. A dry and cool weather pattern will set up across the area for the next several days.

More sunshine is expected later in the day on Saturday, with mainly sunny skies in the forecast for Sunday and into the upcoming week. Overnight temperatures will fall into the 50s and 40s, while afternoon high temperatures will be in the autumn-like 60s.

As far as the tropics go, one major system out in the Atlantic is Teddy, a Category 4 hurricane. Teddy will approach Bermuda late Sunday or Monday. At this time, Teddy is not expected to make a direct hit on the island. Otherwise, there maybe some impacts to Maine by Tuesday of the upcoming week. Another area of interest is Tropical Depression 22, which may become Wilfred during the day Friday. This system is brewing in the Gulf of Mexico and has the potential to approach Brownsville, TX on Sunday.
