ROANOKE, Va. (WFXR) — An area of high pressure will dominate Southwest and Central Virginia’s forecast through the middle of the week. This means dry and quiet weather conditions are anticipated for the next few days.
Mostly to partly sunny skies will be over the region Monday. Morning temperatures will start in the cool lower and middle 50s with afternoon highs in the warm middle 70s and lower 80s. These temperatures are pretty close to the seasonal average for late May.
More cloud cover is expected Tuesday, but the dry weather will stick around. Morning temperatures will be in the lower and middle 50s. By the afternoon, high temperatures will be in the slightly cooler lower and upper 70s. Similar temperatures are in the forecast for Wednesday with a mix of sun and clouds overhead.
A cold front may bring a few showers to Southwest and Central Virginia Thursday and early Friday, but the rain looks to be hit-or-miss. It will be cooler for both days with highs in the lower and middle 70s.
A low-pressure system may bring some Atlantic moisture to the area. Showers are possible during the Memorial Day weekend, but it doesn’t look to be a washout. Skies will be variably cloudy with highs in the 70s.
