Flood warnings continue through early Saturday for the New River, but water levels are receding

Remaining Ad Time Ad - 00:00

FLOOD WARNINGS continue due to runoff into the New River for portions of Summers, Monroe, Giles, and Wythe counties through Saturday. The New River is falling, but reached major flood stage overnight, and flooding is still occurring at this time.


Once we get past sundown, the chance of rain will slowly diminish. The rest of the night looks mainly cloudy and foggy, with lows in the upper 50s and low 60s. We still could see a few isolated showers overnight. Saturday will bring the chance of pop-up showers and thunderstorms, especially through midday, thanks to an upper level disturbance. However, the risk for flooding should continue to fall, as this rain will not be long lasting or widespread as what we've seen this past week. We'll otherwise see breaks of sun and highs in the 70s.

Sunday and Memorial Day are pretty much looking like carbon copies of Saturday; partly cloudy, warm, and slightly unsettled with only a few isolated showers/t-storms. Next week looks comparatively dry to this past week, with warm highs in the 70s and low 80s, and only the slim chance for stray showers/storms each day. Stay tuned!
