We’re looking at an unsettled weather pattern for the week ahead. The muggy and warm weather conditions will stick around for the next several days, but rain is possible each day.
For Monday, skies will generally be mostly cloudy across Southwest and Central Virginia. The morning will be relatively dry, although a few stray rain showers cannot be ruled out. Rain chances will increase for the afternoon hours. The risk for severe weather is low, but some showers and storms could become capable of producing locally heavy rainfall.
Overall, rain activity will be scattered and not everyone will see rain. The New River Valley will probably see more showers and storms than other parts of our region.
High temperatures will be in the upper 70s and low 80s in the NRV and Alleghany Highlands. The Roanoke Valley, Southside, and Central Virginia will have highs in the mid to upper 80s.
We’re looking at a rinse-and-repeat forecast as we continue into the rest of the week. Showers and storms are possible, more so during the afternoon hours. Temperatures will stay fairly consistent, as well.
Although we’re looking at the chance for rain each day, it won’t necessarily be a washout. Planning on doing some yard work? Consider mowing the grass or tending to your gardens during the morning when it’s a bit cooler and rain chances are lower. If you do have outdoor plans, remember to stay safe and weather-aware, especially during the afternoon and evening hours. When thunder roars, go indoors.
