(WFXR) — It’s the middle of October, but it will feel more like summer as the week continues.
An area of high pressure will dominate Southwest Virginia for the next few days. While this system will keep us relatively dry, it will also allow for unseasonably warm temperatures across the region.
Patchy fog is slated for Wednesday morning. Otherwise, expect a mix of sun and clouds throughout the day with high temperatures ranging from the middle 70s and into the middle 80s.
Temperatures will be about 10-15 degrees above average for Thursday and Friday. Some locations will experience near-record warmth as high temperatures top out in the upper 70s and 80s.
A cold front will pass through Southwest and Central Virginia on Saturday. While it won’t be a washout of a day, spotty showers are possible at times. Winds will pick up ahead of the front and high temperatures will be in the 70s. Once the front sweeps through, we’ll start to notice a difference in our temperatures and humidity levels. By the overnight hours, temperatures will be in the cooler lower 50s and 40s.
Sunday will feel like a typical fall-like day. Skies will be mostly sunny and high temperatures will be in the 60s and lower 70s. It’s going to get pretty chilly during the evening. Overnight lows will be in the upper 30s and 40s for much of Southwest Virginia. You’ll probably want the jacket or coat as you head out the door Monday morning.
A Canadian high pressure system will camp out over the region for much of next week. This will result in dry weather, plenty of sunshine, and fall-like conditions. Expect crisp mornings and cool afternoons for Monday and Tuesday. High temperatures will be in the middle 60s and into the lower 70s.
