It’s another muggy and warm day across Southwest Virginia. Temperatures warmed up into the 80s and low 90s for the afternoon. Dewpoint values were in the 60s which made the air humid throughout the day. There is a slight chance for showers and storms during the late afternoon and evening. The front that passed through Tuesday is still lingering to our south, allowing some rain to develop in our region. Storms could become strong, but they’re expected to be regular non-severe thunderstorms for the most part. The night ahead is looking relatively dry with patchy fog developing in some spots overnight.
Thursday is much of the same. While afternoon high temperatures will be slightly cooler (mid 70s-80s), there is still a chance for scattered storms to impact the area during the afternoon and evening hours. Severe weather does not seem likely, but will not be ruled out either. Some thunderstorms could produce localized heavy rainfall. The humidity will also be sticking around as well. Mostly cloudy to partly cloudy skies will be overhead throughout the day.
High pressure will start to build in for Friday and the weekend. There is still a chance for spotty afternoon showers, but conditions look drier. Higher rain chances will be returning to Southwest Virginia for Sunday and the start of the new work week.
