CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. (WVIR) - It was another 90 degree day on Sunday over central Virginia. The atmosphere is becoming more humid. It will be a mild overnight.

Tracking the progress of a cold front arriving on Monday. This will increase our clouds, lower the temperature and spark some showers, downpour and perhaps a gusty thunder in the afternoon and evening.

Mainly rain-free Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday with hotter temperatures. Can’t completely rule out an isolated shower/thunder. Mainly west over the higher elevations.

Unsettled weather is looking more likely Friday and at times through the Memorial Day weekend holiday. Temperatures will be lower.
