A cool weekend is a precursor to a rainy start to the week

Weather Blog

Normal high temperatures for this time of year in the Roanoke area is at 50 degrees with an average low of 32, so generally speaking, we’ll be just a few degrees cooler than normal.

Sunday’s weather will be a near-carbon-copy of Saturday’s. The main difference will be the increasing cloud-cover that’s anticipated as we head through the day.

Now, what about early next week?

A lumbering area of low pressure will remain off to our west which will help to bring in some rain starting early on Monday. I’m not anticipating the rain to be overly heavy, nor do I expect it to be constant. Still, everyone can expect to get wet.

The low pressure will move from the Mississippi River Valley up toward the Great Lakes region on Tuesday allowing the continued unsettled pattern to continue as the low pressure will still be tossing rain our way.

One added benefit, though, will be a fairly significant increase in temperatures. We’ll climb from the mid 50s to the lower 60s for highs on Tuesday.

That’s before we get the rug kicked out from under us on Wednesday.

Showers could linger Wednesday morning (possibly even some light accumulations of snow in the mountains) before we start to dry things out during the afternoon.

Temperatures will be significantly colder on Wednesday as we can expect highs anywhere from 15 to 25 degrees colder than Tuesday’s highs.

Beyond that, we’re eyeing next weekend for our next opportunity for some unsettled weather.
