Cooler and cloudy Friday with spotty showers


A cold front moving in from the north will be approaching Southwest Virginia Friday morning. This will allow cloud cover to increase to mostly cloudy to overcast skies. Cooler air will also filter into the area and light rain and drizzle will develop throughout the day. The rainy weather will move in from the north and east and usher in moisture that will get blocked up against the mountains, which will cause a wedge formation. This means we can expect plenty of clouds and light rain for much of the day. Temperatures will range from the upper 60s to the low 80s, with many spots experiencing the mid 70s for daily high temperatures. This is a large difference from the 90 degree temperatures much of Southwest Virginia has had for Wednesday and Thursday.

A few showers and storms are possible Sunday afternoon. Another cold front will approach the area. However, it is expected to stall west of the area. This will allow temperatures to be a few degrees warmer. There is still a chance for rain, mainly along and west of the Blue Ridge. A few showers and storms will develop Sunday, but coverage will not be as large.

The beginning of the work week looks to be drier. Afternoon high temperatures will be warming back up into the mid-upper 80s for Monday.
