CHARLOTTESVILLE, V.A. (WVIR) - Many people started out their work week with some mixed precipitation. Now, with temperatures rising, all rain is being seen. This comes as a warm front slowly lifts north across the region. Most of us should see a break in the rain this evening before an associated cold front brings some additional showers overnight through the first part of Tuesday. Rain will be fairly light and minimal accumulations are expected.

While temperatures will be mild on Tuesday, they will cool down substantially for the remainder of the week, behind the cold front. We’ll see chilly but dry conditions through Friday.

A low pressure system will develop well to the south of us over the weekend. At this time, it doesn’t look like the storm system with make it far enough north to see anything except some additional cloud cover. Temperatures remain close to normal.
