*** Flood Warnings for the Nottoway River at Sebrell in Southampton County. “Minor” level flooding is occurring. The river will fall below flood stage this weekend.

A very nice end to the work week… Cooler and less humid air moves in today, behind a cold front. Highs will only warm to the upper 70s, a few degrees below normal for this time of year.

Sunshine will continue for the weekend, but heat and humidity will build in. Highs will warm to the mid 80s on Saturday and to near 90 on Sunday.

Heat and humidity will continue next week with highs in the 80s and 90s. We will see several days with scattered showers and storms as a string of fronts lingers over the Mid-Atlantic.
