An area of high pressure will keep us dry and chilly tonight and Friday before migrating east off the coast late Friday. The result of this pattern will be plenty of clear conditions tonight and early Friday, then some cloud cover late Friday evening into Saturday.

Rain is expected to arrive from the west after midnight Friday into Saturday and linger off and on during the day. Most of the moisture will have cleared the area by mid-day, but some spotty showers are still possible late Saturday afternoon.  Ahead of the front will be mild air that should allow some low 60-degree temps Saturday.

Sunday will be dry and cooler with the temps barely getting into the 50s. Sunny and crisp will define the day and it will be pleasant in Lynchburg for the Christmas Parade.  We will be participating in the parade, so come out and say hi.

Monday will see clouds increase ahead of a couple of rainy days, Tuesday, and Wednesday. Temperatures will vary greatly over the next few days, spiking into the 60s Saturday and Tuesday.

Join us Friday evening in Salem for the Christmas Tree Lighting and the Christmas Parade.
