New Flash Flood Watch
High Water Risk Continues Friday
CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. (WVIR) - Portions of Madison and Culpeper Counties received a summer’s worth of rainfall in a few hours overnight. Causing flooding that will linger into today. Parts of those counties got nearly a foot of rainfall!
A muggy atmosphere in place combined with a weather disturbance and cold front will combine to produce more scattered slow moving downpours and thunderstorms. Any may cause street and stream flooding. Flash Flood Watch across much of the area until midnight. Watch and avoid flood prone areas during and after heavy rainfall.
More showers and thunder around on Friday. We will reside on the cooler side of a front. While still humid, temperatures likely hold in the 70s.
