Shower & storms taper of late tonight
Mostly dry weekend with a few showers possible
- Mostly dry weekend; isolated showers
- Turning warmer Sat. & Sun.
Showers and storms will slowly wind down overnight with areas of fog and drizzle. Watch for standing water if you head out late as some areas picked up 2″ or more of rain.
We’ll have a mix of clouds and sunshine around, but very few showers or storms are expected Saturday. This means you’ll still be able to sneak in some of that yardwork, but just watch for stray afternoon showers. High temperatures warm up into the 70s and low 80s again.
The second half of the weekend will remain mostly cloudy and breezy and start dry. We’ll be waiting on a cold front that will enter the region by late in the day. At this time, showers and perhaps a few storms will enter the region from the west by after 5 p.m. and become scattered to numerous in nature.
Expect highs to be in the 70s and low 80s with lows in the 50s. If you’re heading to Martinsville this weekend for the big race you may have to dodge a few showers and storms (best days for the showers/storms are Friday and Sunday).
