Southwest and Central Virginia can expect a mild start to the work week before a cold front brings in more rain and cooler air.
Clouds cover has been variable for Sunday. Although a few isolated showers may develop during the afternoon and evening, much of the region will stay dry. High temperatures will be slightly warmer, anywhere from the mid 70s and close to 80 degrees. For the night, cloud cover will remain variable and pockets of fog may develop. Low temperatures will reach the upper 50s and low 60s.
It will still be mild for Monday with afternoon temperatures reaching the mid to upper 70s. Spotty rain showers will start to move in Monday afternoon and evening. A few isolated storm may develop as well. However, the bulk of the wet weather is slated for Tuesday.
A cold front will sweep through Southwest and Central Virginia on Tuesday. This will bring widespread showers and storms to the area. At this time, a few storms may become strong to severe. Periods of heavy rainfall may lead to localized flooding as well. The WFXR Pinpoint Weather Team will give updates on this system as it approaches from the west. The Storm Prediction Center mainly has counties east of the I-81 corridor in a Marginal Risk for strong to severe storms on Tuesday.
Some of the rain will linger into Wednesday before the region starts to dry off for the remainder of the week. With the cold front moving through, we’ll notice a cooling trend in the forecast. High temperatures in the low 70s and 60s are expected for Wednesday and into next weekend.
