(WFXR) — Keep the umbrellas on hand this Friday! Although it won’t be raining the entire day, there’s the chance for more scattered showers and storms to move through.
A few morning showers are possible in Southwest Virginia, as well as pockets of fog littered around the region for the morning commute. Otherwise, a nearby disturbance will help to trigger showers and storms during the day, more so during the afternoon. Although Henri is offshore, the tropical cyclone will help to supply some moisture.
Downpours may occur and localized flooding still remains a concern, especially in areas that have seen a good deal of rain this past week. However, not everyone will see rain today. Expect high temperatures to be in the upper 70s and low to mid 80s.
We’ll notice a summer-like weather pattern returning to the forecast for the weekend. It will be warm and muggy for Saturday with our hottest day being Sunday. A mix of sun and clouds will be overhead with high temperatures in the 80s and low 90s. A few pop-up showers and storms cannot be ruled out for the afternoon hours each day.
The hot temperatures will remain in the forecast for the beginning of next week as an area of high pressure builds over the Central U.S. Highs will mainly be in the mid 80s and into the mid 90s for Monday and Tuesday. Rain chances will remain limited as much of the region is expected to stay dry.
The area of high pressure will begin to weaken by the middle of the week. While the hot conditions will linger into Wednesday and Thursday, hit-or-miss showers and storms will have the chance to develop during the afternoon hours.
