ROANOKE, Va. (WFXR) — A dreary Wednesday is in the works for Southwest and Central Virginia.
Fog, drizzle, and rain showers will impact the Wednesday morning commute. Use caution on those wet roadways.
Overall, it will still be a damp and cloudy day with scattered showers possible during the afternoon. As a cold front approaches from the west, warmer air will come in from the south. This will result in high temperatures in the lower and middle 60s.
Most of the wet weather will taper off by the evening hours. Due to the cloud cover and south winds during the evening hours, overnight lows will only drop down into the upper 40s and lower 50s.
Thursday will be cloudy with afternoon highs in the middle and upper 50s. Not much is expected in the way of rain, but isolated showers are possible during the day. Rain chances will increase Thursday night into Friday as another front prepares to move through the region.
Off-and-on rain is likely Friday. Due to the passing front, temperatures will be noticeably cooler with highs in the middle and upper 40s. The front will pass toward the east by the weekend. For Saturday and Sunday, highs will be in the 40s under mostly cloudy skies. A few rain showers cannot be ruled out.
Flooding is not a concern during this period of wet weather. Rainfall totals through the end of the work week will generally range from 0.5 – 2″, although higher amounts are possible in the mountains.
