Into Sunday night, we will start to dry out, though a few showers may linger into Southside during the early part of the evening.

The main impact will be areas of fog that will likely be dense in places – especially along and south of Route 460 where persistent light rain fell through the day.

Lows will range from the mid and upper 50s in the mountains to the lower 60s elsewhere.

As we start the new work week on Monday, we’ll see more sunshine across the northern part of the region. Clouds will linger a bit further south. Humidity levels will be down a bit and we’ll be on the dry side.

High temperatures will top out into the lower and middle 80s with a few 70s in the mountains.

Tuesday sees the return of hazy and hot conditions with highs in the 80s in the mountains and the lower and middle 90s further east. A stray shower or storm can’t be ruled out into the mountains but, right now, most of us should remain dry.

Wednesday and Thursday both look similar with highs in the 80s for most of us, though some near-90-degree readings will be possible for some east of the Blue Ridge. There will also be a risk for some fairly isolated showers and thunderstorms in the heating of the day.

Friday appears to be trending largely dry with temperatures right about where we should be for this time of year (in the 80s).

Next weekend may be a bit unsettled with more showers and thunderstorms possible during the afternoon with highs in the 80s to near 90.

The slow-moving front that has finally dropped to our south has an area of low pressure associated with it that, as it continues dropping toward the south, may develop into a tropical entity into the northern Gulf of Mexico later this upcoming week as the National Hurricane Center says a 30% chance of development exists. It’s something to watch.

I’ll have a full update on the forecast tonight on WFXR News First at Ten!
