Calm Overnight, Spotty Severe Weather Risk Sunday Evening
Mainly Dry Sunday
CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. (WVIR) - For the first time since last weekend, the region is completely rain free! Near calm wind overnight and a wet ground will allow for some fog to form.
The wind will turn more southerly Sunday. This will boost high temperatures to the 80s during the afternoon. Tracking a cold front over the Ohio Valley. It will spark some showers and thunderstorms.
