(WFXR) — Rain, heavy at times, will continue across the eastern half of our region through about mid-morning as Isaias passes to our east. This includes parts of Rockbridge County southward through Pittsylvania County. Farther westward, spotty light rain showers and fog may be a factor in your Tuesday morning commute.

While the heaviest of the rain will occur closer to the coast in closer proximity to the center of Isaias, an additional 1 to 2” of rainfall is possible for our eastern counties. This could lead to some flash flooding.

While the strongest winds remain along the coast, wind gusts near 30 mph will be possible for areas east of HWY 29 this morning.

Isaias will continue northward away from our region by the afternoon. Gradual clearing of skies in its wake is expected.

Late today, a weak cold front will move across the region. This could trigger a few isolated storms out ahead of it later this afternoon.

The rest of the week will feature more of a typical summer-time weather pattern with a daily threat for a few showers and storms during the afternoon.

Stay safe and healthy.
