ROANOKE, Va. (WFXR) –The mild weather pattern will continue Wednesday. However, the WFXR Pinpoint Weather Team is monitoring the chance for showers and storms during the afternoon and evening.

It’s a muggy start to Wednesday, so areas of fog are possible during the morning commute. Morning temperatures will start in the mild 60s before warming up into the upper 70s and 80s by the afternoon. While a few isolated rain showers may move through during the morning hours, most of the shower and storm activity will occur in the afternoon and evening.

Showers and storms will be scattered, so it won’t be persistent all-day rain. Since humid air is in place, any shower or storm that moves through will be capable of producing periods of heavy rainfall. This may lead to localized flooding in areas with poor drainage, as well as along creeks and streams. Isolated strong to severe storms cannot be ruled out, either. Main storm concerns include wind gusts near 60 mph and quarter-size hail.

A few showers may linger into early Thursday morning. Otherwise, decreasing clouds will be overhead. High temperatures will be in the 70s and 80s. Enjoy the brief period of dry weather, because another batch of rain is in the forecast.

A mainly dry Friday is ahead with highs in the middle 70s and into the middle 80s. Clouds will gradually increase throughout the day. A storm system is slated to bring the chance for showers and storms late Friday night into Saturday. Storms are possible during the overnight hours with passing showers in the forecast for Saturday.
