TONIGHT

Tonight any precipitation that forms throughout the day will continue to diminish this evening. Gradual clearing of the skies will happen, and lows will drop into the 60s.

Mild and humid overnight.

THURSDAY

By Thursday, the front nudges slightly south delivering more sunshine and mainly dry conditions. A stray shower can’t be completely ruled out, but bank on a dry day for the most part. Afternoon highs remain parked in the upper 80s/low 90s. A slight decrease in our dew points will also be seen, so we won’t feel as humid while outdoors.

Mostly dry, hot, and humid on Thursday.

THIS WEEKEND

Another mostly dry day will set up for us on Friday. Once again the stray shower/storm is possible, but most will stay dry! For both Saturday and Sunday we aren’t expecting complete washouts, but occasional shower/storm activity is possible thanks to a front nearby plus warm and humid conditions could also help trigger a few storms. Almost looks to be a typical summer thunderstorm pattern where some areas see a storm while others stay dry. Best advice would be have the WDBJ7 Weather App handy and keep an eye to the sky!

Front stall to the South and could return by the weekend.
