(WFXR) — Prepare for hot temperatures in the forecast for the week ahead.
For Monday morning, expect some patchy fog in Southwest and Central Virginia. Otherwise, skies will generally be mostly sunny with high temperatures in the mid 80s in the Alleghany Highlands and the New River Valley. Central Virginia, the Roanoke Valley, and Southside will be on the hot side with highs in the low to mid 90s. Although much of the region will stay dry for the start of the week, a few pop-up showers and storms cannot be ruled out during the heat of the day. However, high pressure will be building into the region, which will result in mainly dry and hot conditions.
Tuesday will be similar to Monday, but it will be hotter outside. High temperatures will range from the upper 80s and into the mid 90s. Limited rain chances remain in the forecast.
There will be some easterly flow Wednesday, allowing some moisture from the Atlantic to push its way into our area. We’ll continue to see the chance for isolated showers and storms. Otherwise, Southwest and Central Virginia will still be hot with highs in the upper 80s and low to mid 90s.
The persistent summer-like weather pattern will continue through the remainder of the week. Highs will remain on the hot side into the weekend and daily afternoon showers and storms are possible. Due to the humid air in place, any showers or storms that do develop this week will be capable of producing downpours.
