(WFXR) — Pleasant weather is in the forecast as we head into the weekend in Southwest Virginia.
Pockets of fog may impact the Friday morning commute for some. Otherwise, we’re looking at plenty of sunshine across the region as high pressure builds in from the west. It will feel more like early fall outside Friday afternoon with low humidity levels in place. High temperatures will be in the 70s across much of Southwest Virginia. A few spots in Central Virginia and Southside may warm up into the low 80s.
Since skies will remain mainly clear for the evening and weather conditions will stay fairly calm, many will wake up Saturday morning with temperatures in the mid-50s and into the mid-40s. There will be plenty of sunshine for the start of the weekend with high temperatures in the upper 70s and lower to middle 80s.
The fall-like feel won’t last long, though. As the area of high pressure shifts east, warmer air will filter into Southwest Virginia. While it will still be sunny for Sunday, high temperatures will be in the warm mid-80s and into the hot lower 90s.
Rain chances will be limited for the upcoming week and the heat will remain in place. Overall, mostly sunny skies are slated for Monday and Tuesday with highs in the upper 80s and middle 90s. We could see a few showers move through the region by the middle of the week.
We will notice hazy conditions as we head into the beginning of next week. Upper-level winds will steer wildfire smoke from the Western U.S. into our region by Monday.
