This Afternoon:
Mostly Cloudy, Showers and Storms

Tonight:
Scattered Showers and Storms
Lows: Around 70
Precipitation: 40%
Tuesday:
Showers and Storms Possible

Heavy rainfall may cause areas of flooding to occur today, but will rain exit by the 4th?

A Flash Flood Watch is in effect until 2am for everywhere along and east of the Blue Ridge. Heavy rainfall in storms may lead to areas of flash flooding with rainfall totals of 2-3 inches and possibly up to 4 inches.

Areas of heavy rainfall appear likely over the next few days as an upper low hangs to the west and a Bermuda high is locked to the east. This will ensure tropical moisture to flow from the Atlantic right into our region increasing moisture and the chance for heavy showers and storms. Expect mostly cloudy skies with areas of heavy showers and storms on and off through the day. Highs should reach the lower 80s. Scattered showers and storms will continue to be possible overnight with lows around 70 degrees. This pattern will continue through Wednesday with the chances for scattered showers and storms. Temperatures will remain in the 80s. For the 4th, there is a chance for isolated storms in the afternoon and temperatures will rise into the upper 80s under partly cloudy skies.
