Sunday has been fairly dry. Although there have been some passing clouds overhead, there have been breaks in the cloud cover to reveal some blue sky and sunshine from time to time. Afternoon temperatures will reach the upper 50s in the New River Valley and Alleghany Highlands and 60s in the Roanoke Valley, Central Virginia, and Southside. We can’t totally rule out a stray rain shower.
Spotty showers will have the chance to move through this evening. We’re not expecting severe weather or heavy rainfall; just a few light rain showers. Overnight lows will be in the 40s and upper 30s.
Some rain showers may stick around into Monday morning, but any lingering wet weather should exit the region by the afternoon. It will be a cloudy start to the day, but some sunshine will peek out during the afternoon hours. High temperatures will be in the 60s across Southwest and Central Virginia.
The brief warming trend will continue into Tuesday. Expect relatively dry conditions with mostly sunny skies overhead. Those living east of the Blue Ridge Parkway will have afternoon highs in the 70s. Toward the west, high temperatures will be in the mid to upper 60s.
A cold front will sweep through the region on Wednesday, bringing the chance for a few rain showers. The front will end the brief warming trend and winds will pick up, as well. High temperatures will only reach the low 60s east of the Blue Ridge – mid-50s are in the forecast for the mountains.
Cold nights will return to Southwest and Central Virginia. Lows will be in the 30s overnight Wednesday into Thursday morning.
Thursday looks to be drier, but also cooler and breezy. High temperatures will mainly be in the 50s.
