ROANOKE, Va. (WFXR) — A midweek warm-up is expected across Southwest and Central Virginia before another cold front impacts the region.
Some patchy fog is possible in mountain valleys and near rivers for the Tuesday morning commute. Otherwise, you may want a coat or jacket for the start of the day. Morning temperatures will start in the chilly 30s and 40s. By the afternoon, temperatures will be in the slightly milder 60s and lower 70s under mostly sunny skies.
Wednesday will be much of the same, except with increasing cloudiness overhead. Morning temperatures will start in the 30s and 40s before warming up into the 60s and lower 70s by the afternoon.
Thursday is anticipated to be the warmest day of the week with afternoon temperatures reaching the 70s. Mostly dry weather is anticipated for Southwest and Central Virginia for the time being.
Rain chances increase late Friday into Saturday as a low-pressure system throws moisture from the Gulf of Mexico toward the region. A cold front will also move in from the west. Scattered showers will move through with highs reaching the 60s and lower 70s.
For Sunday, much cooler weather is expected behind the passing cold front. A few showers may linger around. Otherwise, winds will pick up with afternoon temperatures reaching the lower 60s and 50s. The cooler-than-average weather will continue into Monday.
