A Severe Thunderstorm Warning has been issued for Martinsville, Danville as well as parts of Henry, Pittsylvania and Patrick counties until 4:30 p.m.

The weather remains unstable through the weekend into next week with "multiple rounds" or showers and storms, the weather service said. It's expected to begin Thursday afternoon into evening.

Fog should burn off by 11 a.m., but it could linger "a bit longer" over eastern areas, the National Weather Service said.

Most of our area has been included in the Slight Risk for severe weather this evening. The weather service forecast for Kansas City, Kansas, says there is a 20 percent chance of rain both nights.

Friday through Sunday are expected to be sunny, with highs in the upper 80s to low 90s and lows in the 60s.

Cooler weather on Sunday behind a cold front, but after that front pushes through, a few scattered showers and storms are possible into early next week.

Tonight, the low will be around 65, with a south wind of 10 to 14 miles per hour, gusting as high as 20 miles per hour, according to the weather service.

It should be dry Monday for the start of the workweek, the weather service said.
