CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. (WVIR) - Our fair weather friend, high pressure will keep the region nice and dry with a cooler northeast breeze this afternoon.

Mainly clear and cool overnight.

Watching the progress of a weak weather disturbance arriving from the north later on Friday. This will trigger a few isolated showers to form during the afternoon and early evening. If a thunderstorm can form, then a little small hail is possible. It’ll be at or below freezing in the clouds.

Only a spotty shower chance on Saturday. Much of the region looks to stay dry.

A front will stall out over the region beginning Sunday into Monday. This will allow for a higher and more widespread rain chance. Some showers around on Sunday and more rain most likely on Monday. This will be beneficial rainfall of a half into to inch and a half. More rain is projected south of the James River at this time. Keep checking back for updates.

Thursday afternoon: Sunshine with a light northeast breeze. Highs 65 to 70 degrees.

Friday: Morning sun then clouds form. Isolated showers/thunder developing in the afternoon and early evening.

Friday overnight: Partly cloudy. Lows in the 40s.
