An area of low pressure to the west is bringing plenty of moisture into Southwest and Central Virginia.
For Thursday morning, a few light rain showers will linger around the region. Pockets of fog developed overnight and will hang around into the morning commute. Overall, it will be a cloudy day across the area.
Rain chances will increase for the afternoon and evening as scattered showers and storms develop. These showers and storms are expected to be slow movers and will produce heavy rainfall at times. The threat for localized flooding will remain in place. Flooding issues will become present along some creeks and streams, low-lying spots, and areas with poor drainage.
It will be slightly cooler outside with afternoon temperatures reaching the mid to upper 70s and low 80s.
Friday will be a rinse-and-repeat forecast. Scattered showers and storms are possible, especially during the afternoon and evening. Localized flooding will be a concern. High temperatures will be in the mid to upper 70s and low 80s.
Some of the moisture from the low pressure system will linger into the weekend. There’s the chance for spotty showers and storms in our more mountainous areas for Saturday. A few showers may move east of the Blue Ridge. Otherwise, we’ll notice a slow warm-up with highs mainly in the upper 70s and low 80s for the afternoon.
Isolated showers are possible for Sunday, but much of the region is looking drier. A mix of sun and clouds will be overhead and afternoon temperatures will be in the 80s. The beginning of next week looks to be the start of a quiet pattern of weather.
