(WFXR) — A passing cold front brought heavy rain to Southwest and Central Virginia late Wednesday. Now that the front has moved off toward the east, we can expect fall-like air to filter into the region.
Overall, we’re starting the day on a different foot. Morning temperatures will be in the upper 40s and 50s with some clouds lingering toward the Alleghany Highlands and New River Valley. More sunshine is expected across the region by the afternoon hours with highs in the 60s and low to mid-70s. The drier air that is filtering into Southwest Virginia will keep humidity levels down for the next few days. Winds may be breezy at times, making it feel more like fall.
Lighter winds and mainly clear skies this evening will allow overnight temperatures to fall into 40s. You may feel a bit of a chill as you head out the door Friday morning. Skies will remain sunny for the end of the week with high temperatures in the upper 60s and into the mid-70s.
The cooler morning temperatures will stick around into the weekend. While a few spotty mountain showers cannot be ruled out Saturday, we’re looking at relatively dry and pleasant weather in the forecast for the weekend. Morning temperatures in the 40s and low 50s are expected for Saturday and Sunday with highs in the 70s.
It will be slightly warmer for the start of next week. High temperatures for both Monday and Tuesday will be in the 70s and low 80s.
