327 AM EDT Mon Jun 25 2018

A weak cold front will push south across our area today, and 
stall to our south by this evening, with a good chance for a 
wetting rain in northwest North Carolina and far southwest
Virginia into tonight.

High pressure aloft will then build over the eastern 
U.S. during the later half of the week resulting in hotter and 
humid conditions along with the threat of diurnally driven 
showers and storms.

Including the city of Wytheville
