The National Weather Service on Tuesday afternoon issued a flood advisory for Henry County including the City of Martinsville.
At 3:40 p.m., Doppler radar showed heavy rains and thunderstorms giving way to light rain, but the runoff put small streams at risk of flooding as the water collects in low-lying areas.
A slow-moving cold front expected to arrive overnight will stall over the region for the remainder of the work week, pushing temperatures down slightly, but still providing a chance of daily showers and thunderstorms.
In the forecast, Wednesday will be another sunny and hot day with a high near 90. Thursday will be partly sunny with a high near 87.
Friday's high is expected to be about 82.
The weekend will be partly to mostly sunny with highs in the 80s.
