CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. (WVIR) - Tracking a strong Cold Font. It will arrive in our region west to east later this morning to early afternoon. A dry start to the day. A gusty shower with the Cold Front expected. A rumble of thunder also possible. Any heavier shower or storm may cause localized damaging wind gusts. Football fans should take a poncho in case of a passing shower at Scott Stadium for the UVA vs Duke Football game kicking off at 12:30 PM. Temperatures in the 70s late morning to early afternoon and then cooling to the 60s by the end of the day with a blustery northwest wind.
