Hit-or-miss showers and storms will develop Sunday afternoon and evening.
A weak frontal boundary will allow scattered showers and storms to develop in Southwest Virginia Sunday afternoon and evening. Not everyone will see rain, but those that do will likely experience heavy rainfall from these showers and storms. Some of these storms may become strong to severe, so stay alert and safe, especially if you’re outside or traveling for the holiday weekend. If these storms do become strong, the main concerns will be gusty winds and downpours.
The summer-like weather pattern continues for the week ahead. High temperatures will mainly be in the 80s and low 90s, and rain is possible each day during the upcoming week. Showers and storms are more likely to develop in the afternoon, during the heat of the day.
Later in the week, an area of low pressure will push through the Carolinas and off the coast. This will give the region the chance to see more widespread showers and storms on Thursday and Friday. This is a fluid forecast and timing still needs to be ironed out, but rain chances are looking greater later in the upcoming week.
