Pinpoint Weather: A quiet and dry weekend in store for central, SWVA

Weather Blog

After much of the NRV and the southern Roanoke Valley saw a bit of snow on Friday, we now get rewarded with a nice weekend.

Clouds will linger in the NRV and into the Highlands today but they will gradual scour out which will give us generally clear skies overnight which will, in turn, produce lots of sunshine over the region into Sunday.

Temperatures will remain quite chilly in the NRV on Saturday where highs will remain in the 30s. Elsewhere, 40s and 50s can be expected. On Sunday, the NRV warms up into the 40s – same with the Highlands. The rest of the area should see 50s for highs to wrap up the weekend.

On Monday, clouds will increase through the day as we get a relatively weak system entering the area Monday night where rain and snow showers will be likely across areas east of the Blue Ridge. Further west into the NRV and Highlands, less rain and more snow will be likely, but accumulations – at least night now, don’t look impressive (an inch or so is in the forecast for these areas.)

By Tuesday, the moisture exits the area, likely before sunrise (the way the models are looking right now). The rest of the week is expected to be dry, but a few snow showers look possible in the mountains on Friday.

Temperatures into next week looks a bit above average where the metro areas should be in the upper 40s into the mid 50s.

But again, this weekend is looking dry. A little chilly in the mountains Saturday, but elsewhere, temperatures should be close to where they should be for this time of year, in the mid-to-upper 40s to near 50, so enjoy it!
