(WFXR) — We’ll see some much needed rain over the next few days, but flooding is a concern.
We have a frontal boundary that is close to our region. This front combined with the humid air in place will allow scattered showers and storms to develop Monday afternoon. Any shower or storm that does develop in the region will be capable of producing heavy rainfall. Skies will be mostly cloudy to overcast and high temperatures will be in the upper 70s and low to mid 80s.
Remnants of Fred will give us some moisture as we head into Tuesday and Wednesday. Numerous showers, and a few storms, are expected late Tuesday into Wednesday. It won’t be raining the entire time, but localized flooding is possible, especially in urban areas and areas with poor drainage. It’s important to stay alert while traveling over the next few days. Use caution while driving on wet roadways, and never drive through flood waters.
High temperatures for Tuesday and Wednesday will be in the upper 70s and low 80s. Overall, rainfall totals of 1-3″ are possible across Southwest and Central Virginia. There may be locally higher rainfall amounts, as well.
The remnants of Fred will move away from the region as we head into Thursday, but the humid air will stay in place. Rain chances won’t be as high, but scattered pop-up afternoon showers and storms are possible through the end of the week/
There will be a warming trend starting Thursday and continuing into the weekend. High temperatures will mainly be in the 80s, but some spots will warm up cose to the 90-degree mark by the weekend.
