Pinpoint Weather: Mountain snow showers tonight; a decent warm-up is on the way

Weather Blog

After a chilly Monday, we have some changes in store that warmer weather enthusiasts will likely enjoy!

Tonight, though, another cold night will take place with lows in the 20s across the region.

The winds we saw will diminish as well with variably cloudy skies, though some mountain snow showers will be likely later tonight.

Snowfall accumulations in the mountains will be very light and likely won’t occur until you travel north of our region.

For Tuesday, any west slope snow showers will push away early and the clouds will exit.

We’re looking a bit warmer tomorrow as highs that will climb into the 40s in the mountains and into the 50s elsewhere, though a stray 60 degree reading is possible into Southside and Central Virginia.

Winds will also be picking up a bit, once again, and could gust close to 20-25 mph at times.

Into Wednesday, clouds will move in with some peeks of sunshine at times as temperatures will compare to Tuesday’s. A few showers can’t be ruled out during the afternoon.

For Thursday and Friday, we let the warm-up officially take hold.

A mix of clouds and sun will be likely on Thursday, though Friday does look a bit more sunny.

Highs each day will climb into the 50s west of the Blue Ridge and into the 60s further east. Some areas could even flirt with 70 as we head into Friday!

Into the upcoming weekend, we’re still looking a bit mild into Saturday, but it will be a few degrees cooler than Friday’s highs.

Sunday looks much cooler with highs in the 40s over much of the region. There could be a few showers possible across the area as well.

With Sunday looking like the next chance for showers across much of the region, our dry pattern will continue into this week. Combine the dry conditions with breezy weather at times, there will be added chances for the spread of brush and wildfires. Be sure to limit burning into the evening or early-morning hours when humidity levels are a bit higher and when winds are generally lighter. Remember these tips when planning any outdoor burning. If you can hold off burning anything until we can get some more moisture in the area, that would be even better to limit the risk of the spread of brush fires.

Have a great week! I’ll talk to you tonight on WFXR News at 6:30 and First at Ten!
