CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. (WVIR) - After a starry sky overnight, some clouds will try to back in from the east Tuesday morning. Mainly over eastern counties. Tracking a coastal storm system. The same one that brought the region severe weather last Friday night is parked off the East Coast. This system will keep high temperatures a little below average this week with a north to northeast wind flow.

The risk for severe weather this week will remain over the central and northern Plains.

By Thursday night and especially Friday into the weekend, the coastal storm will back farther west and impact our region directly.
