The remnants of Sally will move through the Carolinas Thursday, and Southwest and Central Virginia will see off and on rain throughout the day.
Rain chances will continue to increase after the mid-morning hours, with the greatest potential for rain slated for the afternoon hours. The heaviest of rainfall is expected for Southside Virginia, and lesser rainfall totals are expected the further north you travel. A Flash Watch is in effect for Henry, Pittsylvania, Charlotte, Franklin, Patrick and Halifax counties (including Danville and Martinsville) through Thursday into Friday afternoon. Two to four inches of rain are possible in these areas, and issues may arise in flood-prone locations. Potential river flooding issues may occur along the Dan River as well. Use caution and stay alert as you head out the door Thursday. The WFXR Pinpoint Weather Team will bring you the latest updates as the rain continues through our region.
When it isn’t raining, skies will be overcast. Due to the wet and cloudy weather, high temperatures Thursday will be in the 60s.
Once the rain exits the region Friday afternoon, an area of high pressure will move in and dominate the region. This means fair weather for the weekend! However, a cold front will sweep through the area on Friday and cooler-than-average temperatures in the 60s are expected for Saturday and Sunday. Overnight temperatures will generally be in the chilly 40s. It will definitely feel like autumn!
