(WFXR) — Rainy conditions returned to Southwest and Central Virginia Sunday and we can expect the wet weather to stick around for a while longer.
The rain that moved through Sunday has resulted in some pockets of dense fog for the Monday morning commute. Give yourself extra time on the roads and remember to keep the low beams on. Overall, it will be mostly cloudy to overcast throughout the day. The cloudy conditions will keep our high temperatures in the 70s. Showers and storms will move through at times, with our best chance for rain during the afternoon and evening hours. Severe weather is not anticipated, but periods of heavy rainfall may lead to localized flooding.
A cut-off low will keep rain chances in the forecast for Tuesday and Wednesday. This storm system will pull moisture from the Gulf of Mexico, so expect off-and-on rain for both days. A few storms may come into the mix, but the severe weather risk is on the low end. Localized flooding will remain a concern for areas that receive periods of moderate rainfall. Highs will remain in the 70s.
The wet weather pattern will persist through the end of the week. A cool-air wedge will be in place Thursday and Friday with high temperatures in the low 70s and 60s. Off-and-on showers are likely, but a few rumbles of thunder cannot be ruled out. Since the ground will be saturated from all of the rainy weather, there is still the potential for localized flooding.
Showers will linger in the forecast through Saturday. Our driest day of the week appears to be Sunday, but slight rain chances remain on the table.
