ROANOKE, Va. (WFXR) — After showers and storms impacted Southwest and Central Virginia late Wednesday night, we’re looking at a quieter and slightly cooler end to the week.
A few light rain showers may linger into Thursday morning. Expect some pockets of fog during the morning commute with temperatures starting in the 60s. Although a few stray showers or storms are possible this afternoon, much of the region will see dry weather. Skies will be variably cloudy with high temperatures in the warm 80s. Clouds will increase Thursday night with overnight lows in the 60s.
Friday will be quieter than Thursday. While a stray shower or two may develop during the heat of the day, Southwest and Central Virginia will be mainly dry. A mix of sun and clouds will be overhead with highs in the 80s. It definitely won’t get as hot as Tuesday or Wednesday.
Saturday will be a few degrees warmer with a few locations reaching the 90-degree mark. It will also be a bit more humid. The uptick in moisture may allow for a couple of showers and storms to pop up during the late-day hours. However, severe weather is not anticipated. Skies will generally be mostly to partly sunny throughout the day.
A cold front is slated to impact Southwest and Central Virginia Sunday and Monday. Showers and storms will begin to develop ahead of the cold front Sunday afternoon and evening. There’s a greater chance to see thunderstorms Monday before the wet weather wraps up Monday night.
The cold front will bring the region more than showers and storms. Drier air and cooler temperatures will be behind the passing front. Tuesday and Wednesday look to be drier with lower humidity levels. Afternoon temperatures will be below average with highs in the 70s and 80s.
