Pinpoint Weather: Gray day ahead with more rain on the way as we head into the weekend

Weather Blog

(WFXR) — We won’t see much sunshine in Southwest Virginia as we end the week. The cloudy conditions are here to stay with more rain on the way.

For Friday morning, expect some patchy fog and drizzle with cloudy skies overhead. There is a chance for showers west of US 220 for the morning. However, scattered showers will move into the region during the afternoon and evening. High temperatures will range from the upper 60s and into the mid-70s.

Our main batch of rain is slated to move in from the south Friday evening into Saturday morning. A storm system off the coast of South Carolina and a low pressure system to our northwest are both throwing plenty of moisture toward the region, so periods of heavy rainfall are likely. Localized flooding is a concern, especially in areas that have already seen a good deal of rain this week.

While some showers may linger around the region during the evening, the bulk of the wet weather should be out of the region by the time the Virginia Tech football game starts at Lane Stadium. You may want to bring along a rain poncho or rain jacket, just in case. Some drizzle is possible.

The wedge will continue to dominate Southwest Virginia for much of Sunday, as well as Monday. This feature will keep skies mostly cloudy, although some sunshine will peek out at times. There is a slight chance for isolated showers each day, but much of the region will stay dry. Expect highs in the low to mid 70s for both days.

High pressure will build into the region, starting Tuesday. While we’re looking at drier days ahead, there will also be a warm-up. It may feel more like early summer outside with highs in the mid-70s/low-80s.
