Pinpoint Weather: A chilly morning followed by a sunny and mild afternoon

Weather Blog

We’ll enjoy a nice warm-up on this Thursday!

Clear and chilly conditions will start your day. Overall, winds aren’t much of a factor today. However, winds may remain a bit gusty for some of our mountain locations, especially along I-77 through daybreak.

A ridge of high pressure aloft will help in warming cold morning temperatures to near 60 in many locations today.

Although mornings will be a bit chilly for the next few days, we’ll enjoy mild afternoons through the weekend with highs near 60 degrees. Keep in mind, this time of year, Roanoke’s typical high is 49 degrees. Enjoy these above average afternoon temperatures while they’re here!

Next rain chance holds off until Saturday night into Sunday. While showers are forecast for Sunday, it will not be a washout as most of the day looks to be dry.

Late Sunday into Monday, any rain showers may transition to upslope snow showers for west-facing slopes of Greenbrier and Pocahontas Counties. Areas west of I-77 may see some snow late Sunday into the early morning hours of Monday. Elsewhere, any precipitation should be all rain.

Monday, it’s back to reality as highs fall back to the 40s.

Stay safe and healthy.
