While it felt and looked like winter in some spots in Southwest Virginia Monday, it will more so feel like winter for Tuesday.
Snow coverage decreased throughout the evening hours Monday and into Tuesday. A few snow flurries may linger to our west during the morning hours. However, dry air will continue to move into the region. Cloud cover will be variable throughout the day with most of the clouds hanging over top of the New River Valley and Alleghany Highlands. Afternoon temperatures will reach the upper 30s and into the mid 40s Tuesday.
It will still be breezy for Tuesday, but winds will decrease throughout the day. A Wind Advisory is in effect for much of Southwest Virginia until noon Tuesday. Winds will range from 15 – 30 mph and gusts up to 50 mph are possible this morning.
High pressure moves in overhead and gives us a relatively dry week. Temperatures are likely to be hovering around the 50-degree mark through the next several days. Winds will gust up again as we head into Wednesday, but conditions will remain dry. It will become less windy Thursday.
A few showers are possible Friday, but much of the moisture will stay north. Otherwise expect mostly cloudy skies for the end of the work week. More sunshine is in the forecast for the weekend with temperatures in the 40s and 50s.
