Pinpoint Weather: Grab the sunglasses! More sunshine is in the forecast

Weather Blog

Fair weather is in the forecast for Southwest and Central Virginia for the next few days as an area of high pressure builds into the region.

Wednesday morning will start with some pockets of fog in the New River Valley. Otherwise, we’re looking at mostly sunny skies across the region with lower humidity in place. Temperatures will be warm, yet a bit cooler than what we’ve experienced recently. Highs will be in the 70s in the NRV and Alleghany Highlands. Central Virginia, the Roanoke Valley, and Southside will experience highs in the low to mid-80s.

The next few evening will be on the cooler side. Skies will be mostly clear and winds will be calm during the nighttime hours. This will result in overnight lows in the cool 40s and mid-50s.

Thursday will have a similar forecast to Wednesday: more sunshine with highs in the 70s and low to mid-80s.

The summer heat will be back Friday as the area of high pressure moves east. Many locations in Southwest and Central Virginia will warm up into the mid-80s and low-90s to end the workweek.

Temperatures will continue to be on the warmer side for Father’s Day weekend. We could see showers and storms returning to the forecast late Saturday into Sunday.

There is the potential for tropical moisture to come into play for the start of next week. This may result in scattered showers and storms.
