Pinpoint Weather: Dry & warm today, rain returns Sunday
Source:  WFXR
Friday, 12 August 2022 23:22

The dry conditions are expected to be brief as rain is already back in the forecast for Sunday. So, enjoy the sunny and warm, not hot, weather today. If you have any plans to take care of some yard work or just take a stroll in the neighborhood, today will be better than Sunday.

High pressure to the north of the region will be the reason for the dry air arriving in the Commonwealth, with a cooler feel as it will arrive from the north.

But as the weekend moves along the high shifts east and opens the door for some rain to arrive from the northwest on Sunday afternoon or evening.

Rainfall amounts will be on the light side with less than an inch being measured at any one location. There may be an area that has some heavy rain that is slow to move and may register a bit more in the bucket, but for the most part about a half inch in the west to nearly nothing east of the 220 corridor.

So, the bottom line is that there will be a lovely day today, and some rain is slated for late Sunday.

Following the weekend there will be some stormy weather in the area Monday with some storms being strong to severe in the NRV. But that is a while away. Enjoy a nice day today and prepare for the return to the rainy pattern starting Sunday.

The difference with the rainy pattern next week is that the temps will be on the cool side.

Stay Safe,
John Carroll

Fredericksburg NationalsJames Wood continued his hot start with the FredNats with two hits and an RBI double, but it was Augusta that pulled away for a 7-4 win in Fredericksburg on Firework Friday.

The GreenJackets scored the first five runs of the game off Jackson Rutledge, two in the third, two in the fourth and one in the fifth. Only three of those runs were earned as the FredNat defense made two errors behind Rutledge. Kadon Morton of Augusta hit a home run off Rutledge, but the first rounder settled in late in his outing to finish with six strikeouts.

All four FredNat runs came in the fifth inning, a frame in which the team racked up five hits. Sammy Infante started the attack with a double, and he came home on an RBI single from T.J. White. After Zion Pettigrew reached and stole second, he and White came home on a two-run double by Jacob Young to extend his six-game hitting streak.

Wood drove in the fourth and final run of the game for the FredNats with another double off the right field wall to score Young and make it a 5-4 game at the time. Augusta’s Adam Zebrowski smacked a two-run homer in the eighth inning for some key insurance runs for the GreenJackets in their win.

Infante and Wood paced the offense with two hits apiece, and Brendan Collins had a solid outing out of the FredNat bullpen, pitching 2 1/3 scoreless innings and scattering three hits.

Augusta has taken three out of the first four in the series and will look to win the series tomorrow night at Virginia Credit Union Stadium. Andry Lara will start for Fredericksburg, and first pitch is scheduled for 6:05 p.m.
