ROANOKE, Va. (WFXR) — It’s the last day of November. While Monday was noticeably colder, we’ll round out the month with slightly milder temperatures.
It will be a cold start to Tuesday. Morning temperatures will start in the 20s and lower 30s. Some passing clouds will linger around after sunrise, but skies will generally be mostly to partly sunny for much of the day. Winds will be breezy at times with gusts as high as 30 mph possible. High temperatures will be in the 50s by the afternoon. Overnight lows will be in the chilly upper 20s and 30s.
The dry and breezy conditions are favorable for increased fire danger, especially along and east of the Blue Ridge. Outdoor burning is strongly discouraged Tuesday as fires may spread quickly in these weather conditions. If you are burning outdoors, please be attentive and burn with caution.
A disturbance will throw some clouds toward Southwest Virginia Wednesday. A few rain showers and mountain rain/snow mix are possible late in the day, but much of the region will stay dry. Winds will be lighter and high temperatures will be similar to Tuesday. It won’t get as chilly during the overnight hours with lows slated to be in the upper 30s and 40s.
We’re anticipating unseasonably warm conditions for the end of the week. For Thursday, expect a mix of sun and clouds overhead. Blustery southwest and west winds will help temperatures warm up into the 60s by the afternoon. Friday will be sunnier with lighter winds blowing through the region. High temperatures will reach the mild 60s. A few locations in Southside Virginia could hit the 70-degree mark!
We’ll notice temperatures cooling down by the weekend. By Saturday, highs will be in the lower 60s and 50s with a mix of sun and clouds overhead. Overnight lows will be in the 30s.
It will be a bit more seasonable for Sunday with highs in the lower 50s and 40s. Clouds will gradually increase during the day as another disturbance approaches the region. Some rain showers are possible late Sunday into Monday. Any rain we receive in Southwest Virginia would be beneficial. Many spots east of the Blue Ridge have seen as little as 0.25″ of rainfall over the last 30 days.
