Temperatures won’t be as cold for Friday morning, Southside Virginia will deal with some light rain.
A coastal storm is bringing rain to the Carolinas, but Southwest Virginia will only receive light rain from this system. Those in Halifax, Pittsylvania, Charlotte, and Henry counties will have the greatest potential to see a little rain. Totals will be less than an inch, so this isn’t a major weather event; just a nuisance to some. Otherwise, much of the region will stay dry with partly to mostly cloudy skies overhead. Temperatures will warm up closer to seasonal average, with highs in the upper 40s and mid 50s.
The coastal storm will present some issues as we head into the weekend. This low pressure system will strengthen off the South Carolina coast. We won’t see much rain-wise, but gusty winds are expected from the east and northeast over the Piedmont. Winds will be in the 30-mph range with gusts near 45 at times Saturday and Sunday. Make sure outdoor furniture and decorations are secured or brought inside for the weekend.
For the rest of the region, expect breezy conditions along with a mix of clouds and sunshine for the weekend. Below-average temperatures will continue with highs in the 40s and lows in the 30s Saturday and Sunday.
