.DISCUSSION...

A strong cold front brought a good wetting rain, and for some too
much rain Monday. Amounts ranged from 1 to as much as 6+ inches
in the mountains to an inch or less over the piedmont near
Lynchburg. 

We will see things start to dry out today through Friday with
temperatures dropping to below seasonal normals for at least
daytime highs. 

High pressure will bring a warming trend by Friday before another
front brings rainfall over the weekend.
