An area of high pressure overhead will allow the dry weather to continue for one more day. While skies will start off mostly clear, clouds will increase throughout the day for Thursday. Despite the increasing clouds, temperatures will approach near-average values in the mid to upper 50s.
Temperatures in the 50s and close to the 60 degree mark are expected for Friday, but rain is also slated for the end of the work week. Off and on showers will move through Southwest Virginia during the morning and afternoon. A few spots in the New River Valley could see rainfall amount above a quarter of an inch. There will be some breaks in the rainfall, which could allow for some high school football games during the evening. We’re expecting better chances for rain on Saturday.
The second batch is expected to be more widespread and provide parts of the region with at least a half inch of rain or so. This appears to be an all-day rain event, so make sure to be prepared if you’re planning on heading outside Saturday. Events are occurring this weekend, so you’ll probably need the rain gear.
The rain may convert over to snow in some of the higher peaks in West Virginia early Sunday morning, but most of the region will start to dry off. A few showers could linger into Sunday morning, but otherwise conditions will be drier for the new week. Temperatures will be close to seasonal average, but another system could bring some rain for Wednesday, right before Thanksgiving.
