ROANOKE, Va. (WFXR) — Milder temperatures are anticipated for the upcoming week. However, there are a few chances for rain in the forecast.

It will be a cold start to Monday with morning temperatures in the sub-freezing 20s. If you’re planning on participating in service projects this Martin Luther King Jr. Day, you won’t have to worry about any rain or gusty winds. Increasing cloudiness is expected over Southwest and Central Virginia with afternoon highs in the slightly milder lower and middle 50s.

The first storm system this week will bring rain showers to the region late Monday night into Tuesday morning. A warm front will approach Southwest and Central Virginia, bringing moisture along with it. Most of the rain will fall during the morning hours and taper off before noon. Morning temperatures will be in the above-freezing upper 30s and lower 40s, so this will be all rain. Some afternoon sunshine is possible with afternoon temperatures in the mid-50s and lower 60s. Winds may be breezy at times.

The milder conditions will remain in place for Wednesday. Morning temperatures will be in the upper 30s and 40s with afternoon highs in the warmer lower and middle 60s. Partly to mostly cloudy skies will be overhead.

Another round of showers will impact the region late Wednesday night into Thursday as a front passes through Southwest and Central Virginia. Rain will be off-and-on throughout the day Thursday with highs in the 60s.

Cooler air will filter in behind Thursday’s front. An area of high pressure will allow for partly to mostly sunny skies Friday and Saturday. Winds will be brisk at times with gusts as high as 30 mph possible. Although temperatures will trend cooler for the end of the week, highs will still be warmer than average for the middle of January. Expect morning temperatures in the upper 20s and lower 30s. Afternoon temperatures will be in the upper 40s and lower 50s.
