CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. (WVIR) - The best chance for a scattered shower, downpour and thunderstorm will be this Friday afternoon and evening.

The National Weather Service has issued a Flood Watch for much of the region through 11 PM Friday for possible flooding during slow moving or repeat downpours and thunderstorms. Watch flood prone areas and never drive through high water! Turn around, don’t drown.

The first weekend of August will not be a total washout. Isolated shower and thunderstorm will form in the heat and humidity during the afternoon and evening hours Saturday and Sunday. Otherwise, hazy, hot tropically humid.
