ROANOKE, Va. (WFXR) — Rinse and repeat! For Wednesday, sunshine and warm temperatures are back in the forecast across Southwest and Central Virginia.

Wednesday will start with morning temperatures in the 40s. Thanks to an area of high pressure, the dry weather pattern will continue. Afternoon temperatures will be in the seasonably mild 70s with mostly sunny skies overhead. A few locations may warm up close to the 80-degree mark!

The sunny conditions won’t last forever. Increasing clouds will be over Southwest and Central Virginia Thursday. A few late-day rain showers cannot be ruled out, but much of the area will stay fairly dry. High temperatures will range from the upper 60s into the lower 70s.

The same storm system that brought us wet weather last Friday and Saturday will move back over the East Coast for the end of the week. This storm system will pull in moisture from the Atlantic and send it toward the Appalachians. Expect off-and-on rain showers Friday through Saturday. A few afternoon thunderstorms could come into the mix. Periods of heavy rainfall may occur.

Temperatures will be slightly cooler for the end of the week. High temperatures Friday and Saturday will be in the upper 60s and 70s.

The chance for rain will linger into Sunday. While rain coverage won’t be as widespread, afternoon storms will still have the chance to develop. High temperatures will be in the 70s and lower to middle 80s. The warmer air could help with severe weather development.

Due to a passing cold front, the storm system will move toward the northeast Monday. Some spotty showers are possible Monday. Otherwise, the day is looking drier with highs in the 70s and lower 80s. The warmer-than-average trend will continue into the middle of next week.
