If you liked Saturday’s weather, you’ll like Sunday’s as a virtual carbon copy day is expected in southwest and central Virginia.
We’ll have temperatures generally in the lower to middle 60s across the region on Sunday. Into tonight, we should remain in the 40s so we’re not anticipating any frost advisories.
Into next week, we’ll see our expected warm-up take affect as we’ll see highs climb as much as 10-12 degrees into the lower and even some middle 70s. In fact, by mid-week, some areas will be flirting with 80 degrees!
Low temperatures will also gradually warm from the 40s into the 50s, so an opportunity to open the windows again to let some fresh air inside is anticipated.
Our above-normal temperatures will continue through the rest of next week before a cold front is expected to pass through the region into next weekend, which will bring us our next chance for some scattered showers.
All in all, a quiet pattern continues for much of next week.
The National Weather Service in Blacksburg has officially marked the end of the growing season for some of our localities in the Greenbrier Valley and the New River Valley – as well as Highland County. Since these areas have seen multiple frosts and/or freezes, the growing season has ended in these areas. Elsewhere, in the Highlands and NRV that are still in the growing season, you are expected to remain in the growing season for another week (until Oct. 25). Elsewhere, you’ve got until mid-November – unless another series of frosts or a hard freeze occurs before then.
Oh, and T-minus two weeks until we turn the clocks back one hour (it happens on Halloween night this year).
