CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. (WVIR) - A cold front continues to shift south of the region today. A drier northerly wind flow will keep area less hot and humid through Friday. It has also pushed the thickest haze and smoke in the upper atmosphere to the south. The sky will still appear hazy, but not as bad as recent days.

Becoming more muggy this weekend as the wind turns more southerly. Only expecting isolated shower/storm chances Saturday and Sunday. We may have a better chance for a shower, downpour and thunderstorm early next week with a cold front getting closer.
