Pinpoint Weather: Feeling like fall today; rain chances increase tomorrow due to remnants of Sally

Weather Blog

High pressure is in control for another day before the remnants of Sally move across the region tomorrow and Friday.

As for this morning’s commute, some patchy fog is possible. The fog could be dense in spots.

It’s a refreshing yet somewhat chilly start to the day with some of us in the 40s! You’ll want to grab a light sweater or jacket this morning.

Pleasant highs in the 70s are expected this afternoon under hazy sunshine and increasing clouds late today.

We will watch closely the remnants of Sally. Earlier this morning, Sally made landfall as a cat 2 hurricane near Gulf Shores, Alabama. As Sally continues farther inland, it will weaken and the remnants will increase rain chances here in Southwest VA tomorrow and through early Friday.

The bulk of the moisture will pass to our south across the Carolinas, but showers will be scattered to numerous from north to south across our region Thursday. Showers will taper off early Friday as the remnants exit the area.

Anywhere from around 1 to 2” of rainfall is expected with as much as 3” possible across Southside. This could lead to some localized flooding.

A Flood Watch is in effect for parts of Southside Thursday through early Friday afternoon.

High pressure builds back in for the weekend with highs only in the 60s!

Stay safe and healthy.
