Mostly cloudy skies will stick around for the morning hours this Wednesday as a wedge of high pressure remains over top of Southwest Virginia. Areas of fog and drizzle are possible during the first part of the day, but should begin to clear as we get closer to noon. Expect temperatures a few degrees warmer when compared to Tuesday’s high temperatures, ranging from the low 60s and into the low 70s for the afternoon. Cloud cover will alternate between mostly cloudy to partly cloudy skies throughout the day, so the sun will have the chance to peek out every so often during the afternoon.
Temperatures will fall into the low to mid 50s during the evening, and fog is possible once more for Thursday morning. However, the wedge begins to erode, meaning the sky will gradually become partly cloudy overall with mostly sunny skies in spots. High temperatures are expected to reach the low to mid 70s across Southwest Virginia.
Warming continues as we head into the weekend, with our warmest temperatures expected for Saturday before another cold front moves through. There is a slight chance for spotty showers on Saturday, but otherwise conditions will stay seasonal and rain chances are on the low side.
