Pinpoint Weather: Hot and humid again with better storm chances Tuesday

Weather Blog

A weak front will approach the area today before stalling across the region through late in the week. This will keep our weather somewhat  unsettled for several days.

Today will be hot and humid before scattered showers and storms develop this afternoon. Highs are expected to make it into the 90s again for many spots east of the Blue Ridge.

The Storm Prediction Center has outlined parts of our Southwest Virginia in a marginal risk for severe weather. One or two storms may become severe for parts of Southside and Central Virginia today. Any storm that becomes severe poses the main threat of damaging wind gusts.

Heavy downpours can also be expected with any of the stronger storms.

The front will continue to slowly sag southward across the region through tonight. A few showers will remain possible through late tonight.

Wednesday, the front stalls across Southwest Virginia with showers and storms forming along and near the boundary. By Thursday and into Friday, the front will sag a little farther southward. By Friday, the best chances for rain will continue for areas south of Roanoke in closer proximity to the boundary.

By late in the week, highs will stick to the 80s for a change.

Stay safe and healthy.
