ROANOKE, Va. (WFXR) — Showers and storms remain in the forecast as we head into Tuesday. Plus, the heat wave continues across Southwest and Central Virginia.

A complex of showers and storms will impact areas west of I-77 early Tuesday morning. Frequent lightning is possible, as well as heavy rainfall and gusty winds.

Another cluster of storms will dip down from the Ohio Valley and impact the Commonwealth during the morning hours and into the afternoon. Most of the activity is expected to be east of US 220. A few storms may become strong to severe. While not everyone will see rain, you’ll still want to stay weather aware. The main concern with stronger storms is damaging wind gusts. However, large hail and isolated tornadoes cannot be ruled out. Remember to have at least two ways to receive severe weather alerts.

How warm our temperatures get this Tuesday will be determined by the amount of cloud cover overhead. It will still be on the hot and muggy side with high temperatures in the 80s and 90s. Heat index values may reach the triple digits in locations east of the Blue Ridge. It’s important that you find ways to stay cool for the next few days. Remember to drink plenty of water and take frequent breaks in the shade if you’re working outside. Check on your neighbors, the elderly, children, and pets in these hot conditions.

Tuesday evening looks drier with partly cloudy skies in the forecast. Overnight lows will be in the upper 60s and lower 70s.

The heat and humidity will stay in place for the middle of the week. High temperatures will be in the 90s Wednesday with afternoon showers and storms possible. A few of these storms may become strong to severe with localized flooding possible.

Another chance for afternoon showers and storms is in the cards for Thursday. It will still be hot and humid outside with highs in the upper 80s and 90s. Stay safe in this heat wave!

A front will move through Friday, bringing the chance for a few isolated showers and storms. This front will also wrap up the heat wave by the weekend. Expect drier conditions Saturday and Father’s Day Sunday with highs in the 70s and 80s.
