Pinpoint Weather: Morning showers south of US 460, break from heat to start the week

Weather Blog

(WFXR) — A front has stalled near the Virginia-North Carolina line this morning. As a result, rain is still in the forecast for some in our region.

For Monday, showers and storms will stick around for the morning and into the early afternoon hours. This is mainly the case for counties near and south of U.S. Route 460. The farther north of US 460 you go, the lower the rain chances and humidity will be. While there will be some sunshine from time to time, it will generally be mostly cloudy. High temperatures will range from the mid 70s and into the mid 80s.

There will still be a slight chance for isolated showers and storms Tuesday, but rain chances will dwindle as the front dips farther south. Expect mostly to partly cloudy skies with high temperatures in the upper 70s and 80s.

Rain chances remain low for Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday, but they’re not zero. Any shower or storm that does develop will have the potential to produce heavy rainfall. The main condition we will notice for the middle of the week will be the heat returning to Southwest and Central Virginia. Afternoon temperatures will be in the mid to upper 80s in the Alleghany Highlands and the New River Valley for both days. Southside, Central Virginia, and the Roanoke Valley will have highs in the low 90s.

The warm weather will stick around through the end of the workweek and into the weekend. Spotty showers and storms are possible during the weekend, but it doesn’t look to be a washout.
