CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. (WVIR) - After a stormy Saturday evening and night, Sunday will only feature a stray shower and thunderstorm.

A few reports of flooding across the region Saturday night. Many areas received anywhere from 1 to 5 inches of rainfall!

Any leftover high water will continue to recede today. There will be a few isolated showers and thunderstorms today into this evening. Northing as widespread as last night.

Tracking the progress of more smoke from wildfires in Canada. The smoke will arrive in our region especially Monday into Tuesday. The sky will appear extra hazy and at times cause poor air quality.
