(WFXR). The area is under the influence of high pressure as we push forward into the new work week. Abundant sunshine will filter through the clouds and haze.

The haze is being attributed to the wildfires in Canada. The smoke is fairly dissipated by the time it reaches the Commonwealth, but at the upper levels you can still see a light, tan haze.

The rest of the week will be quiet as well but some clouds are expected to arrive on Thursday. Late Wednesday there will be a weak, moisture-starved cold front that will cross the region and may provide some spotty showers over the Mountains.

Friday will be slightly cooler behind the front. Saturday will be a rainy day as an area of low pressure rides up the coast and drifts inland over North Carolina.

Showers are expected over the early portion of the Memorial Day Holiday. May linger into Monday as well.

This past weekend at Roanoke-Blacksburg Regional, there was no measurable precipitation, ending the streak of 14 weekends in a row with some rain.
