Kick off conditions today

It is the last weekend for regular season college football until conference championships and bowl games. A big game is taking place in Charlottesville this afternoon. UVA and VT will battle it out for bragging rights. JMU takes on Coastal Carolina too.

Kick-off conditions are cool and sunny for both games, and it will stay that way for the first half. Once the sun sets, it turns even cooler.

Almost everyone sees the 20s tonight

Temperatures tonight will be pretty cold. A lot of us get well into the 20s. A little bit of cloud cover builds in by midnight and we wake up tomorrow morning with mostly to partly cloudy conditions.

Another cold front late this weekend

Later this weekend our next cold front moves in from the west and will bring a chance of seeing rain. We will only see light showers this time around, and not the heavy rainfall we saw earlier in the week. We are still in a drought, so anything helps!

Still dealing with drought conditions

Here is the latest look at the drought monitor. Severe drought has spread across most of southwest and central Virginia. Along with this, there are still burn bans in effect.

A look at the next 7 days
