High pressure stays locked in across our region, resulting in tranquil weather for the next few days.
You may opt for layers next few days as each day will start out chilly followed by pleasantly warm afternoon temperatures.
Many of us are waking up to temperatures similar to yesterday morning, in the 30s and 40s this morning. Some patchy frost is possible early this morning, mainly for higher elevations and outlying, rural locales.
Another nice warm-up is in store for this Thursday afternoon! Look for highs in the upper 60s to low 70s east of the Blue Ridge Parkway and mid and upper 60s throughout the New River Valley and Alleghany Highlands.
This will be above the average highs typical for this time of year. For comparison, Roanoke’s normal high for November 5th is 63 degrees.
The warming trend continues for the rest of the week. Highs will continue to reach the 70s into the weekend.
With high pressure in control, our weather pattern stays mild and dry through the weekend.
Rain chances ramp up next week. Showers possible as early as next Tuesday with increasing rain chances Wednesday.
Stay safe and healthy.
