Sunday’s temperatures were a few degrees cooler than Saturday’s, due to added cloud-cover and pockets of showers.
The chance for showers will increase as the evening progresses. Overnight, we’ll see temperatures climb slightly as the front from the west moves closer. There’s even a chance for a few thunderstorms developing overnight into the early-morning hours Monday – primarily along and south of Route 460.
By noontime Monday, the front will have cleared the area and blue skies and lots of sunshine will be in the cards.
We’ll remain dry into New Year’s Eve and New Year’s Day.
Thursday looks to be a “transition day” as we can expect clouds to gradually increase through the day which will set up our next chance for showers into the day on Friday.
Now, as far as temperatures. Keep in mind, our normal high in Roanoke is 46 degrees and our normal low is 28.
Sunday’s highs are expected to hover in the upper 50s to near 60 in most areas.
Monday, we could see temperatures approach or even get on the other side of 70 degrees – especially in our southeast areas like Danville and South Boston.
With the front passing through the area on Monday, that’s indicative of cooler temperatures which is what we’ll see on Tuesday. Generally speaking, we’ll see temps fall a bit closer to normal with highs generally in the upper 40s to lower 50s.
We can expect high temperatures to climb toward the upper 50s to near 60 once again heading into the start of next weekend.
Beyond that, models are hinting at cooler weather coming in for the first full week of 2020.
