While a closed low coastal storm brings rain to the Carolinas, Southwest Virginia can expect some winds.
With the coastal low tracking further south and dry air flowing to the region, much of Southwest Virginia has been relatively quiet with the exception of wind gusts up to 30 mph at times. Because of the dry air entering Southwest Virginia, cloud cover was not as dense as expected for Saturday. Low clouds will move in overnight, but rain is unlikely at this point.
Sunday will start out with near- to below-freezing temperatures in the 20s and 30s. Afternoon highs will reach the 40s in many locations with a few spots in Southside Virginia warming up close to the 50 degree mark. It will still be breezy, but winds won’t be as strong as they were for Saturday. Cloud cover will be variable east of the Blue Ridge Parkway. More sunshine and blue skies are expected in the New River Valley and the Alleghany Highlands.
Monday will be dry and seasonal; temperatures will warm up into the low to upper 50s, which is near-average for the middle of November. Significant weather isn’t expected for the next several day. A mixture of sunshine and clouds will linger into the middle of the upcoming week.
