Cold and windy night ahead, more sunshine slated for Wednesday

Weather Blog

It’s looking dry across Southwest Virginia for Tuesday night, but the clear skies overhead will allow temperatures to drop overnight.

The evening is looking drier. Skies will become mostly clear, but winds will still pick up from time to time. Many locations will fall into the 30s with freezing temperatures possible west of the Blue Ridge Parkway. Since the 2020 growing season has started across Southwest Virginia, a Freezing Warning will go into effect at 1 a.m. until 10 a.m. Wednesday for several counties along and west of the I-81 corridor. These cold temperatures could harm tender plants, so cover gardens and bring in the potted plants.

Wednesday will be our driest day for the upcoming week. High pressure will build in, which means fair weather and plenty of sunshine for much of the region. Winds won’t be as much of an issue, but it maybe breezy at times.

The dry weather won’t last long though, with rain slated for Thursday. Off and on showers are likely, especially for Thursday afternoon. It will be gray and cool with highs in the upper 50s/low 60s.

Rain will come to an end Friday morning and a mix of clouds and sunshine will be left behind. More rain chances are in the forecast for the weekend with our greatest chance for rain on Saturday.
