CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. (WVIR) - Hazy sky today and Monday as some smoke from ongoing wildfires in Canada advances over the region. Moderate air quality levels mean a small number of sensitive people may have a few health concerns.

Becoming hotter this afternoon through tomorrow. Not very humid, however.

Not as hot Wednesday as a cold front arrives from the northeast.

A shower chance Thursday morning as the front retreats back as a warm front.

Turning hotter again Friday.

The next best shower and thunderstorm chance will move in on Saturday with a summer cold front.

Some moisture from tropical system Hilary now moving into southern California, may indirectly give our area some rain showers with the next front Saturday.
