ROANOKE, Va. (WFXR) — Sweater weather is in the forecast! To kick off the week, cool November-like conditions are slated for Southwest and Central Virginia.
An area of low pressure will remain over the northeastern United States for the next couple of days, resulting in cool and breezy weather through Tuesday. For Monday, a few isolated rain showers and sprinkles are possible with variably cloudy skies overhead. Morning temperatures will start in the upper 30s and 40s before warming up into the cooler-than-average 50s by the afternoon.
Isolated rain showers cannot be ruled out for Tuesday, but much of the region will stay mostly dry and cool. Afternoon temperatures will range from the mid-50s and into the mid-60s under variably cloudy skies.
Prepare for a chilly Wednesday morning as temperatures start in the 30s and lower 40s. The low-pressure system to the northeast will move away from the region, leading to more sunshine for Wednesday. Afternoon highs will be in the slightly milder 60s.
The warming trend continues into Thursday. Morning lows will be in the 30s and 40s while afternoon highs will reach the 60s and lower 70s. While Thursday will start mostly sunny, clouds will begin to increase late in the day.
