Widespread rain continues into Sunday

Weather Blog

Moisture for what is left of Nestor will bring beneficial rainfall to the region Saturday night into Sunday.

CNestor is moving east-northeast and is expected to move through the Carolinas before exiting into the Atlantic. Rain will continue into Sunday morning and is expected to start winding down around noon. Rainfall will be moderate to heavy at times.

Higher rainfall amounts are expected in portions of Southside — such as Pittsylvania and Halifax counties — were some spots could see more than two inches of rain. Totals are less in the Alleghany Highlands and along the Blue Ridge Parkway where amounts are expected to be between 0.5″ – 1″. This, nonetheless, will be a good soaking for the region. Once again, not a drought buster, but will definitely help with current drought conditions.

Expect mostly cloudy skies for Sunday once the rain moves out. While the afternoon will be drier, it will be slick and muddy. Plan on wearing rain boots if you plan on going to the pumpkin patch later in the day Sunday.

Clouds will stick around for Monday, but it will be a dry day. More rain is slated for Tuesday due to a cold front from the west.  Rain looks to be likely and a few rumbles of thunder are possible. Winds could get gusty at times as well.
