Dry and mild Thursday, spotty showers and storms possible for the weekend

Weather Blog

High pressure builds into the region for Thursday, meaning dry weather for the day.

Thursday will start off cloudy and some pockets of fog may have developed west of the Blue Ridge Parkway. However, skies will gradually clear as we approach noon and we can expect mostly sunny skies with afternoon temperatures reaching the spring-like low to mid 60s.

A few spotty showers and storms are possible Friday as a disturbance impacts the region. The greatest chance for rain will be in the mountains of West Virginia and areas along and north of the I-64 corridor. Winds will pick up across Southwest Virginia and clouds will increase throughout the day. High temperatures will be well above-average for this time of year, warming up into the upper 70s and low 80s.

There’s yet another chance for spotty showers and storms Saturday, but the position of a warm front will determine how warm our temperatures get. Models are ranging anywhere from the highs in the upper 60s and highs close to 80. I still think it will be a mild day and have forecast temperatures in the 70s for Saturday afternoon.

A storm system passes by the region and we’ll see the chance for morning showers early Sunday. Southwest Virginia will dry off during the afternoon with temperatures warming up into the upper 70s and low 80s.

Cooler temperatures are slated for the beginning of the upcoming week. Highs will be seasonal for Monday and Tuesday with temperatures in the 60s. Rain showers are possible for both Tuesday and Wednesday.
