Pinpoint Weather: Rain off and on today, sunny and hot Sunday

Weather Blog

Rain showers are expected to linger through the morning and afternoon hours as a wave of moisture migrates in from the south before sunrise. Then, later in the day, a line of moderate to heavy rain may arrive from the west and give us another round of wet weather.

The region could use some rain since all we have measured in the bucket this month was 0.01″ of rainwater at Roanoke Regional Airport. Unfortunately, this will be a one-and-done as there will be a dry and hot pattern set up starting Sunday and lasting through the workweek.

There is a bit of conflict with the models with respect to the amount of rain, but I expect to see the bulk of the rain stay east of our viewing area.

The rain may be heavy at times so prepare for some localized flooding in our eastern counties of Halifax and Charlotte.

If the rain arrives in the west late in the day, expect to see some minor flooding or even some flash flooding around sunset.

Sunday is going to be mostly dry as there will be a decent ridge of high pressure starting to build over the area. This ridge will not only serve to dry us out but also heat us up.

Highs for the next several days after Sunday will be in the low 90s so remember to stay hydrated and out of the sun as much as possible.

Stay Safe,
