ROANOKE, Va. (WFXR) — Southwest and Central Virginia are left with breezy winds and drier conditions behind Sunday’s storm system.
It’s a cold start to Monday with morning temperatures in the 20s and lower 30s. At higher elevations, any moisture on the roads may freeze due to the cold conditions, so take it easy on those roads this morning.
Otherwise, skies will gradually clear with winds picking up at times. Gusts as high as 25 mph are possible. It will be noticeably milder with afternoon highs in the warmer-than-average 50s.
Tuesday will start with morning temperatures in the chilly lower and middle 30s. Although late-day clouds are possible on Valentine’s Day, rain isn’t anticipated with warmer afternoon temperatures in the upper 50s and lower 60s.
A few stray rain showers cannot be ruled out overnight Tuesday into Wednesday morning, but a majority of the region will stay dry. The warming trend continues with breezy winds blowing through. High temperatures will be in the warmer middle and upper 60s.
Off-and-on showers are in the forecast for Thursday as a cold front approaches from the west. Highs will still reach the spring-like 60s.
A few showers may linger into Friday morning, but drier air will filter in behind the front as it moves to our east. Winds will pick up and temperatures will drop behind the front. Afternoon temperatures will generally range from the 50s to the 40s.
