Weekend Outlook

Weather could interfere with lots of outdoor events planned across central Virginia on Saturday. We can expect improving conditions on Sunday.

The weather will be turning active on Saturday as a powerful area of low pressure and trailing cold front head our way. Clouds will thicken on Friday night in advance of this storm and rain showers will begin shortly after midnight.

Saturday is when we will pick up the bulk of our rainfall. Since we're expecting a fairly significant amount of rain in a short period of time, flash flood watches have already been issued for many parts of central Virginia. Those watches are in effect from Saturday morning until Saturday evening, for the potential of one to two inches of rain in those areas. Given all the rain we've seen here lately, it won't take a lot of wet weather to push some rivers, creeks, and streams out of their banks. The heaviest rain appears to come in from the late morning hours into the afternoon as the cold front works through. We aren't expecting major severe weather, but some thunderstorms that develop could produce gusty winds between 30 and 35 miles per hour. Conditions will begin to improve during the evening as the storm pulls away from Virginia. Sunday will bring dramatically different weather conditions to our area as skies begin, providing us with ample sunshine.
