We’re shaping up to have a pleasant weekend across Southwest and Central Virginia.
While some clouds did linger in the New River Valley for Saturday, most of the region saw plenty of sunshine with afternoon highs generally in the 40s. For tonight, skies will be mostly clear. However, when you pair together clear skies and light winds, it usually results in cold overnight temperatures. This will be the case with lows ranging from the low to mid 20s and even the teens in the NRV and Alleghany Highlands.
More sunshine is slated for Sunday and temperatures will be noticeably warmer. Highs will be above-average for this time of year with temperatures reaching the mid 40s and into the low 50s.
We’ll start off dry for Monday, but there will be an increase in cloud cover overhead. Afternoon highs will be in the 40s and skies will become mostly cloudy ahead of our next system. The region will see the chance for rain showers to move through late Monday night and continue into early Tuesday morning. Some models are hinting at some snow, as well. While we could see some accumulating snowfall in parts of the NRV and Alleghany Highlands, this appears to be a mainly rain event.
Most of the moisture should exit the region Tuesday morning and we may even see some sunshine later in the day.
Otherwise, for the week ahead, much of the region will warm up into the upper 40s and mid 50s for the next few days. However, we’ll still have to deal with morning temperatures near and below the freezing mark.
