Hot weekend ahead, rain continues to make appearances

Weather Blog

Spotty showers and storms still have the potential to bubble up for Friday afternoon and into the early evening hours. Many spots will not see rain for the day, but those who do could receive heavy rainfall. Rain chances will start to dwindle as we head further into the evening hours. Patchy fog will develop in spots overnight and linger into the morning hours Saturday.

High pressure will build into Southwest Virginia for Saturday. Models to suggest isolated afternoon showers and storms are possible, mainly east of the Blue Ridge Parkway. Otherwise, the area is expecting mostly sunny skies and warm temperatures ranging from the low 80s and into the mid 90s. Due to the hot temperatures and the humidity, remember to stay cool and hydrated if you’re planning to be outside this weekend. You’ll probably get pretty sweaty as well!

The chance for showers and storms will return to the area Sunday afternoon/evening. Temperatures will continue to be above-average. We’ll continue with the chance for rain each afternoon throughout the first half of the new week.
