Pinpoint Weather: Heat and humidity continues, rain chances increase later in the week

Weather Blog

Southwest and Central Virginia are shaping up to have another hot and humid day as an area of high pressure allows warm and muggy air to filter into the region.

Although some pockets of fog have developed overnight and will linger into the morning, more sunshine is expected for Monday. High temperatures will range from the mid to upper 80s and into the low 90s. A few isolated showers and storms cannot be ruled out during the afternoon, but much of the region will stay dry.

For Tuesday, Southwest and Central Virginia are expected to be dry with hazy sunshine. Highs east of the Blue Ridge are forecast to be in the low to mid 90s. The NRV and Alleghany Highlands will have high temperatures in the mid to upper 80s.

Wednesday will be another warm and muggy day. High temperatures will be similar to Monday and Tuesday. However, showers and storms are possible later in the day. Our weather pattern will begin to shift as we head into Thursday.

Scattered showers and storms will develop ahead of a cold front Thursday. Due to the humid air in place, showers and storms will be capable of producing heavy rainfall. There’s as the potential we could see some severe thunderstorms, too. More widespread rain is in the forecast for Friday. The WFXR Pinpoint Weather Team will continue to update the forecast as more information becomes available.
