Stormy pattern continues; Saturday the wettest day - CM 🌧️
THROUGH THE WEEKEND
We are tracking a front that is hanging out nearby. Low pressure above us will swing moisture our way. The front will lift that moisture and give us showers and storms each day.
On Friday, we start with a few isolated showers that turn more numerous after 11 a.m. and Noon. Localized flooding is a possibility near and west of the Blue Ridge Parkway. High temperatures will be in the upper 70s and lower 80s.
On Saturday, scattered showers and storms in the morning gradually turn a little more widespread after 10 or 11. This will be the wetter of the two days this weekend, with localized flooding still possible. A couple strong to severe storms will be possible in Southside during the evening, with rotation not 100% out of the question either. High temperatures will be in the mid to upper 70s for most of us.
On Sunday, our overall storm system shifts east. This will likely mean that storms will be more scattered after 11 a.m. or Noon. High temperatures will range from 75-80 in the NRV and Highlands to 80-85 elsewhere.
Our front FINALLY gets shoved east by another front. This reduces storm chances Monday and Tuesday to about 20-30%. Highs each day will be in the low to mid 80s for most of the area with lows at night in the low to mid 60s. This is thanks to a nice drop in humidity by Tuesday.
Weak storm systems will rise from the southwest, increasing humidity and storm chances by next Wednesday and Thursday.
Tropical Storm Josephine recently formed east of the Lesser Antilles (Caribbean Islands). This is not a threat to the U.S.
