Warm temperatures for the last day of summer

Weather

Summer-like temperatures are expected for the beginning of the week.

While many did not see rain, a few spotty brief showers developed in portions of the Alleghany Highlands and the New River Valley for Saturday afternoon. Some of them traveled into the Roanoke Valley. Any rain left will taper off for the evening ahead. Skies will slowly clear to partly cloudy skies. Some pockets of fog are possible in the NRV overnight.

The relatively dry weather will continue into Sunday and Monday as high pressure dominates the area. The skies will be mostly clear and the air will be warm with temperatures reaching the upper 80s on Sunday. Some spots in Southside Virginia could hot the 90 degree mark during the afternoon.   It will definitely feel like summer on Sunday which is the last day of summer. 

Monday is the first day of autumn and temperatures will be in the warm mid 80s. Much of the day will be mostly sunny, but spotty showers will try to move in during the afternoon and evening. Rain chances are slight at this point. It appears these brief showers could impact the NRV and the Alleghany Highlands. They could have a hard time moving further east.
