CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. (WVIR) - Hazy and hot this Monday afternoon. However, not very humid.

Some smoke from ongoing wildfires in Canada will dull the sky as well and cause moderate air quality conditions at times.

Not as hot Tuesday and Wednesday. A cold front will arrive from the northeast bringing lower temperatures.

Turning hotter again by Thursday and especially Friday!

A summer cold front arrives by the end of Friday and the start of the weekend. That is our next best chance for any shower and a thunderstorm.

Some moisture from former tropical system Hilary may give the front some extra rain.
