CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. (WVIR) - A dry summer cold front will provide a break in the high heat and humidity for a couple of days.

Northeast breezes will knock temperatures back down to more seasonable levels.

It’ll be a great start to the first day of school on Wednesday for a Charlottesville and Albemarle County.

Becoming hotter and more humid Thursday and especially Friday. High temperatures Friday will be just shy of 100°!

Tracking a stronger late August cold front due into town by late Friday into Saturday from the northwest. This will be our next best chance for a shower, downpour, and thunderstorm.

Cooler temperatures and drier Sunday and next Monday.
