More Like Fall this Last Weekend of Summer

Remaining Dry

Much Cooler Weekend Ahead

CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. (WVIR) - A north breeze is ushering in the coolest and driest weather since back in the spring ahead for the weekend! High temperatures in the 60s and lows in the 40s and even some 30s by dawn!

The sky will be more blue this weekend. Smoke in the upper atmosphere from wildfires out west will be pushed south through Monday.

Temperatures will slowly get back to average mid to late next week.

Tracking active weather in the tropics. We are now out of names! Tropical Storm Wilfred has formed west of Africa. Hurricane Teddy will get close to Bermuda on Monday. Tropical Depression Twenty-Two in the western Gulf of Mexico isn’t moving much over the next few days. The next name will be Alpha.
