We'll see some hazy sunshine today with a 20% chance of afternoon storms. If you're going to be spending the day outside just keep your eyes to the sky.

A hefty southerly jet will bring lots of heat and moisture to the area for the first day of September. Areas of sunshine will also contribute to highs in the upper 80s and lower 90s. 

Widely scattered showers and storms are likely in the afternoon and evening. Heavy rain and strong winds are possible within a strong storm cell.  Keep cool and have the WDBJ7 Weather App handy!


The first week of September is hot and humid. Afternoon temperatures continue to climb into the upper 80s and lower 90s with isolated storm chances each afternoon.

Best coverage for storms will be on Tuesday as a cool front approaches the area. Look for a 40% chance with a high of 92.

Drier conditions return by Wednesday and Thursday. Daytime temperatures will stay in the upper 80s with a blend of sun and clouds.

Storms return to the First Alert Forecast Friday and into next weekend.
