Weather Blog

As a cold front passes to the east, an area of high pressure will build in behind it. This will allow Southwest and Central Virginia to stay relatively dry for the next couple of days.

For the remainder of Sunday afternoon, winds will be breezy with gusts up to 25 mph possible. High temperatures will range from the upper 60s and into the low to mid 70s. There is a slight chance for rain, but these showers will be spotty and a majority of the region will stay dry.

By Sunday evening, skies will be mostly clear, and low temperatures will be in the 40s.

Some clouds will pass overhead for Monday, but there will still be a good deal of sunshine in the forecast. Winds will still be breezy in some spots, especially along and west of the Blue Ridge. The New River Valley and Alleghany Highlands will have afternoon temperatures in the 60s while the Roanoke Valley, Southside, and Central Virginia will warm back up into the 70s.

Expect variable cloud cover for Tuesday with high temperatures in the upper 60s and low to mid 70s.

Temperatures will be noticeably cooler for the latter half of the week. Wednesday’s high temperatures will mainly be in the 60s across the region. Rain showers will have the chance to move through late in the afternoon and into the evening hours.
