Expect periods of light to moderate rain with even pockets of heavier rain possible overnight. All in all, it will be a gloomy and wet night for some football so bring though rain jackets and/or umbrellas! Temperatures will fall into the mid 50s to low 60s.
Scattered showers are possible again Saturday, especially in the late morning/early afternoon. The most likely coverage will remain across Central and Southside VA Saturday. To the west of the Blue Ridge Parkway, shower chances are lower heading into Saturday with partly to mostly cloudy skies expected for much of the day.
VIRGINIA TECH vs NOTRE DAME
Any organized rain should be east of the area by late Saturday just in time for the kickoff at Lane Stadium. Temperatures around 7:30pm will be in the mid 60s. We’ll keep an eye on the progress of the rain and update you here if we notice any timing changes that may impact the game.
Shower chances should go down as we enter the second half of the weekend. We’ll notice improving conditions Sunday. Afternoon highs reach the low 70s Saturday with mid 70s Sunday under partly sunny skies.
The weather returns to more of a fall feel next week with increased sunshine and highs in the mid 70s. Shower chances remain minimal early next week with increasing sunshine and highs in the low 80s.
We are watching a disturbance to the East of the Bahamas; although development is low, this could help fuel our wet pattern through the end of the work week as it feeds tropical air into our already wet pattern.
Interestingly enough, there is only one more available name left on the 2021 list. This will likely be the second year in a row we have used up all the names on the regular season list.
Track the tropics anytime in our hurricane center.
