Fall-like feel as we enter the first weekend of September
Lots of sunshine and cooler temperatures to end the week
Two EF-1 Tornadoes have been confirmed from Tuesday night’s storms in Montgomery County. One near Radford and the other near Merrimac. Winds in both estimated 90-95 MPH. Click here for the full storm report.
REST OF TODAY
We continue to watch the remnants from Ida move through the region this afternoon. Any lingering rain should be much lighter than what we saw earlier in the day. Winds have already shifted from the northwest behind the system and we are starting to get drier, more stable air into the western half of the NRV and Highlands. Across the Southside and Central VA, we’ll keep the threat of pockets of rain around into early evening before tapering off.
REST OF THIS WEEK
After Ida’s remnants , we will get a much needed cool down along with lower humidity into the first weekend of September. Highs will be in the 70s and lower 80s with comfortable conditions. Overnight temperatures will slip to the upper 50s.
The weekend remains dry through at least Sunday. A front will sweeping through the Great lakes by late Sunday into Monday bringing the next chance of any precipitation to the area.
