ROANOKE, Va. (WFXR) — You may want to keep the umbrella handy this Wednesday. While rain coverage will be spotty, downpours are possible.
Wednesday will be off to a dry start, though. A bit of patchy fog may impact the morning commute. Otherwise, skies will be variably cloudy for much of the day. Due to a north breeze, it won’t be as muggy outside. It will also be slightly cooler with high temperatures ranging from the mid-70s and into the lower 80s.
A disturbance will bring scattered showers and storms to Southwest and Central Virginia Wednesday afternoon and early evening. Severe weather is not anticipated, but moderate to heavy rainfall may cause localized flooding concerns, so stay weather aware.
Humidity levels will continue to drop through the end of the week. A few isolated showers and storms cannot be ruled out for Thursday, but rain chances will be fairly low. Friday’s weather is looking dry and mild. A mix of sun and clouds will be overhead both days with slightly cooler-than-average high temperatures in the middle and upper 70s.
Moisture in Southwest and Central Virginia will begin to increase over the weekend, causing an increase in rain chances. Spotty showers and storms are slated for late Saturday while more wet weather is in the forecast for Sunday. It will be noticeably cooler with highs in the 70s over the weekend. Hopefully, the cooler conditions will cut down on instability and keep our storm chances low.
