CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. (WVIR) - The National Weather Service has expanded and extended the Flood/Flash Flood Warning! It now includes portions of southeast Augusta County, including Staunton and Waynesboro, northern Nelson and northwestern Albemarle County until 2:30 AM Sunday! Storms fade away overnight.
Becoming hotter Sunday through mid week. Mini heat wave conditions will build. Highs back to the lower 90s over central Virginia through Thursday.
There’s only isolated thunderstorm chances through Tuesday. Watching for possible severe weather by the end of Tuesday over northern Virginia. Keep checking back to see if those storms end up getting closer to our region.
Overall a quiet weather patter for us mid week with above average temperatures.
Tracking two tropical storms. One named Marco now entering the Gulf of Mexico and the other named Laura moving away from Puerto Rico. They bother will likely impact the northern Gulf Coast. Marco likely making landfall over Louisiana in the Monday to early Tuesday time frame. While Laura may also make landfall as perhaps a category one hurricane over Louisiana two days later! Wednesday into Thursday.
Some of that tropical rain may head our way by Friday! Keep checking back for updates.
