Commencing an early-week warming trend leading up to Thanksgiving


The departing area of low pressure that brought a rainy Saturday has helped to bring in some gusty winds. As the day progresses on Sunday, winds will start to lessen. We’ll gain a solid 10 to 15 degrees from Saturday’s high for today. Then, we’ll add another 10 degrees or so from Sunday’s high onto Monday’s high as we approach temperatures in the lower-to-middle 60s in areas from Roanoke to Lynchburg to Danville.

Then, eyes start watching an area of low pressure to our west. Yesterday, models were hinting at just a little bit of moisture coming in late Tuesday into Wednesday. Now, the weather is looking a bit more active. We’ll see an area of low pressure march from the mid-Mississippi River Valley up toward the Great Lakes region into Wednesday which looks to throw some rain our way. With warmer weather in our forecast, most areas will see mostly rain. The only exception MIGHT be into the mountains of West Virginia where some light snow could mix in.

Beyond that, the Thanksgiving holiday looks to be slightly cooler, but still fairly seasonal. It also looks dry – perhaps a tad bit breezy.

Black Friday looks dry to hit the malls to begin the holiday shopping season.
