CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. (WVIR) - After a stormy Saturday evening over parts of the region. With areas of flooding over the central Shenandoah Valley and Blue Ridge Mountains, today will be less active. Only isolated chances for showers and thunderstorms later this afternoon and early evening. That said, any area that gets a downpour could still have a local high water risk since the ground is waterlogged..
A similar weather pattern for Monday. High temperatures rising to the upper 80s to lower 90s through mid week.
Watching for possible severe weather Tuesday evening. A cold front will be sliding southeast and will cause a line of thunderstorms to form. Northern Virginia appears to have the greatest risk for scattered severe wind gusts.
Hotter and mainly dry Wednesday and Thursday.
