ROANOKE, Va. (WFXR) — If you need to run any errands or put up those outdoor decorations, Monday would be the best day to do so.

The quiet and chilly weather pattern continues into the beginning of the work week. It will be a cold start to Monday with morning temperatures in the sub-freezing 20s. Partly to mostly cloudy skies will be overhead for the day with afternoon temperatures in the upper 40s and lower 50s.

While Southwest and Central Virginia will stay pretty dry during the daytime hours, light rain will begin to move through during the night. Overnight lows will be in the middle and upper 30s.

The damp weather pattern will kick off Tuesday with multiple fronts impacting the region through the remainder of the week. Off-and-on showers are likely Tuesday with afternoon temperatures reaching the upper 40s and lower 50s.

Rain coverage won’t be as widespread Wednesday, but showers are still possible. Warmer air will come in from the south, resulting in highs in the lower and middle 60s Wednesday afternoon.

Flooding is not a concern through the middle of the week. Rainfall totals Tuesday and Wednesday will generally be less than an inch, although higher amounts are possible in the mountains.

Another batch of scattered showers is expected Wednesday night into Thursday. It will still be mild with afternoon highs in the upper 50s and lower 60s Thursday.
