Pinpoint Weather: Isolated storms today; remnants of Laura will increase showers and storms heading into weekend.

Weather Blog

Pockets of fog, at times dense, will be a factor for some for this morning’s commute, especially for west of the Parkway.

Today will be continued hot and humid with highs, again, into the lower 90s! This is above the average high of 85 degrees for this time of year in Roanoke.

Isolated storms can be expected this afternoon. Even though most of the region will stay dry today, a few storms could become strong to severe.

The Storm Prediction Center has outlined areas north and west of Roanoke in a marginal risk for severe weather. Today, any storm that becomes severe will pose threats of damaging winds and large hail.

Rain chances ramp up by late Friday and through Saturday. As the remnants of Laura move through the region, anywhere between 1 to 3″ of rainfall will be possible Saturday.

Remnants of Laura will bring in tropical moisture ahead of a cold front Saturday. This will lead to scattered to numerous showers and storms. Heavy downpours will increase our risk for flooding late in the week. Strong winds may also lead to some power outages.

Stay safe and healthy.
