Pinpoint Weather: Showers stay south, hot pattern on the way back

Weather Blog

The rain on Sunday was confined to areas south of both Roanoke and Lynchburg, today that line is even farther south. There is a frontal boundary that has stalled out over North Carolina and will be the focal point for showers and storms today. The threat of rain will be confined today to areas along the highway 58 corridor and south.

The better chance for rain will be south of the state line between NC and VA. There may be some minor flooding today as the recent rains have saturated the southern tier of the viewing area, so any rain today will not be received well. 

Tonight there is still ample moisture around the region for us to see some pockets of fog. There best locations to see the mist will be near waterways as well as low lying areas and folks that got rain today. Southside and southern portions of the NRV will have the best chance for some fog.

This front mentioned above will linger over North Carolina through the rest of the week and there may be some showers pushing north from time to time. The overall pattern suggests another warm day on Tuesday with a mix of clouds and sunshine, then mostly sunny and hot weather until the weekend.

High pressure will arrive in the region by mid-week and help to scour out any remaining cloud cover.  There region will, on the other hand, see clouds generated by the heat of the day. The sun heats the ground, the water in the soil evaporates and rises with the warmer air molecules and then condenses in the sky to form some clouds. Don’t be surprised if a rogue or pop-up storm occurs in the afternoon or evening this week as the temps will be over 90 in most locations east of the Foothills.

Stay safe everyone.
