CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. (WVIR) - A weak weather maker will move over the region on this Sunday. Bringing some additional rainfall.

Not enough rain to put a dent in the ongoing drought across much of the area. Most communities will not see more than a quarter inch of rainfall total through this evening.

A drying trend will take us through the new work and school week.

Expect mild to warm days and pleasant overnights. Ragweed pollen will be on the rise.

Tracking the progress of a coastal storm system next weekend. Some forecast guidance bring rain to the region. While others keep the storm system closer and off the coast. That would keep most, if not all the rain away to our east.
