ROANOKE, Va. (WFXR) — The very warm and humid weather pattern continues across Southwest and Central Virginia for the start of the week. However, a cold front will bring a change in pace Tuesday.

A bit of patchy fog may impact the Monday morning commute. Otherwise, a mix of sun and clouds will be overhead as the heat and humidity stick around in the forecast. High temperatures will range from the mid-80s and into the lower 90s across the region. A few isolated afternoon showers and storms may develop. While the wet weather won’t be widespread, heavy rainfall is possible.

Any showers or storms will wrap up around or just after sunset. Skies will be mostly clear to partly cloudy Monday night. Low temperatures will be in the 60s with pockets of fog developing overnight and lingering into Tuesday morning.

More active weather is slated for Tuesday as a cold front moves through Southwest and Central Virginia. Prior to the front’s arrival, highs will reach the 80s. A few spots in Central Virginia and Southside could warm up into the lower 90s. The heat and humidity ahead of the front will allow scattered showers and storms to develop during the afternoon and evening hours. The main storm concerns will be heavy rainfall and gusty winds.

The cold front will pass through overnight Tuesday/early Wednesday morning. Behind the front will be drier air, which will allow for lower humidity levels starting Wednesday. An area of high pressure will build in for the remainder of the week, resulting in a dry and fair weather pattern. Expect plenty of sunshine Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday. It will be seasonably warm outside. The New River Valley and Alleghany Highlands can expect highs in the upper 70s. The Roanoke Valley, Central Virginia, and Southside will experience high temperatures in the 80s.

The area of high pressure will begin to shift toward the east during the weekend. Humidity levels will creep back up Saturday and Sunday. The Labor Day weekend looks to be mostly dry, but a few isolated showers/storms cannot be ruled out Sunday.
