Pinpoint Weather: Summer heat and humidity continues into Wednesday, daily rain chances remain

Weather Blog

(WFXR) — There will be little change in the forecast for the next few days as the warm and muggy conditions persist across Southwest and Central Virginia.

Similar to Tuesday, a mix of sunshine and clouds can be expected over the region for Wednesday with high temperatures ranging from the mid 80s and into the low 90s. Spotty afternoon showers and storms are possible, but coverage won’t be widespread. The severe weather risk is low, but a few isolated strong storms cannot be ruled out. Heavy rainfall will still be a concern with some of these storms.

We’re looking drier for the evening hours with overnight temperatures in the 60s and low 70s. Patchy fog will develop in some spots and impact the Thursday morning commute.

Thursday will be hot and a bit drier with only a slight chance for a few isolated showers and storms to move through. Otherwise, skies will be mostly to partly cloudy with highs in the mid 80s and into the low 90s.

The hot and humid conditions will continue into Friday as southwest winds will bring warm and moist air into Southwest and Central Virginia. We could see more scattered showers and storms by the weekend with a slight cooldown by the beginning of next week.
