CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. (WVIR) - A few spotty downpours popped up Sunday afternoon. They will fade away after sunset. 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/night. 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.
