***FLOOD WARNING is in effect for the Nottoway River in Southampton and Sussex Counties. Minor flooding is occurring.  In particular, the Nottoway River at Sebrell was at 15.3′ Saturday night. The river is expected to rise above flood stage Sunday afternoon and continue to rise to 17.3′ by Wednesday morning.***

Tracking fog, rain and much cooler temps….We’re tracking more unsettled weather as we move through the next several days. On Sunday, a lot of us will likely wake up to patchy dense fog. Otherwise, expect partly sunny skies as we go through the day. High temperatures will rise into the mid 70s. Next week, have your rain gear handy. We’re tracking several chances for rain as we approach 2016.  In fact, there will be a chance of rain each day as several weather systems move our way. High temps on Monday will be in the 50s. Then, for the rest of the week, we’ll see highs in the 60s and 70s. By next weekend, though, there will be a big shift in our weather pattern as the jet stream moves farther to the south and delivers cooler drier weather into the New Year! We’re expecting highs in the upper 40s and lower 50s next Saturday. Enjoy the rest of your holiday.
