The warm temperatures and muggy air will stay in place for Wednesday, but rain chances will increase as an area of low pressure to our west moves closer to Southwest and Central Virginia.
We’ll start relatively dry for Wednesday morning with a little sunshine peeking out at times. Patchy fog is possible in areas where it rained Tuesday. However, scattered showers and storms are expected to move in during the afternoon and evening.
Similar to Monday and Tuesday, any showers and storms that develop will have the potential to produce heavy rainfall. Localized flooding may occur, especially with slow-moving showers and storms. Rain may pond on the roadways, so stay alert and drive carefully if you happen to get caught in one of these showers or storms. Otherwise, the severe weather risk is low, although some storms may produce lightning.
High temperatures for Wednesday will be in the 80s.
Showers and storms will continue to fire up at times for both Thursday and Friday. As the potential for wet weather continues, so does the threat of localized flooding. There won’t be as much sunshine in the forecast and it will be slightly cooler. High temperatures will mainly be in the low 80s and mid to upper 70s each afternoon.
Rain chances will gradually decrease for the weekend as the area of low pressure moves east of Southwest and Central Virginia. A few showers are possible both Saturday and Sunday. Otherwise, it won’t be as muggy outside and high temperatures will be in the upper 70s and low to mid 80s.
