Pinpoint Weather: Another nice afternoon today before rain/snow showers move in Friday

Weather Blog

We get to enjoy another day of sunshine and above-average temperatures before rain, snow, and colder air move in Friday.

Areas of locally dense fog are possible for areas southeast of Roanoke this morning. Also, some patchy freezing fog will be possible through mid-morning in these areas. Plan some extra travel time due to reduced visibilities and possible icy spots, mainly on bridges and overpasses.

After sunrise, any remaining fog will quickly dissipate.

You may also need to take a couple extra minutes to give a quick scrape to your windshield due to some frost.

Despite a few more clouds by late today, we’ll enjoy plenty of sunshine and slightly warmer highs. Look for highs in the 50s, near 60 degrees in some spots.

Friday, an arctic front will bring snow and rain showers to the region. As of now, it looks as though precipitation will move in from the west by mid-morning.

While a significant snow is not expected, it will be noticeably cooler behind the front. Highs fall back to the low 40s Friday into early next week.

Other than upslope snow showers for our higher elevations in the Highlands, Saturday will be dry but windy.

Stay safe and healthy.
