Rather wet stretch of days in the Heart of Virginia

We are waking up to muggy and somewhat wet across the area! More of that to come throughout the day.

Sunday, we have a front that is slowly moving south. That front crosses us as we go through the day on Sunday and that will be the spark to fire up more showers and storms.

I don't think Sunday will be a washout. I think we will have some breaks of sunshine and some dry time - but overall, more clouds, showers, and storms are on the radar for Sunday afternoon rather than Saturday.

Highs are cooler with the clouds and rain around in the lower to middle 80s.

Some of the storms could try to pack a punch but I think that should be confined to the Carolinas where they will be warmer and see a little more sunshine.

Monday and Tuesday that front is still around, and it still sparks up some showers and storms each day.

It doesn't rain the whole stretch of time Monday and Tuesday but there is an opportunity for rain at any point on Monday and Tuesday. Not a washout - as there will be dry time - but half to over half of us should see rain on Monday and Tuesday at some point.

The front should slide south of us by Wednesday and Thursday, which will keep the remains of what more than likely will be our next storm on the Atlantic Hurricane list from getting too close to us.

We never should rule out the possibility of the track changing, so for now we'll paint Wednesday and Thursday with a storm chance until we get some better agreement on what the storm will do, but again, right now it *should* stay south of us and curve before reaching the Heart of Virginia.

Regardless, by Friday and the rest of the weekend, high pressure makes a return just to celebrate the unofficial end of Summer - The Labor Day weekend!
