ROANOKE, Va. (WFXR) — Typical summer-like weather is in the forecast for the next few days in Southwest and Central Virginia.
Friday will start cloudy with some patchy fog impacting the morning commute. However, skies will partially clear during the day, allowing some sunshine to break through. High temperatures will be in the middle and upper 80s with muggy air in place. A few spotty showers or storms may develop during the heat of the day, but much of the region will stay fairly dry.
Saturday will be a few degrees warmer with highs in the 80s and near the 90-degree mark. It will also be a bit more humid. The uptick in moisture may allow for pop-up showers and storms during the afternoon and early evening hours. Severe weather is not anticipated, but heavy rainfall is possible with these showers and storms.
It definitely won’t be a washout for the weekend, but make sure you have a way to take shelter in the event a storm does develop while you’re out and about.
Sunday will be a little warmer with afternoon highs in the middle 80s and into the lower 90s. The day will start dry, but showers and storms will have the chance to develop during the afternoon and evening.
Numerous showers and storms will develop as a cold front moves through Monday. Drier and cooler air will filter in behind the front later in the day. Highs will be in the noticeably cooler 70s and 80s.
Tuesday and Wednesday look to be drier with lower humidity levels. Afternoon temperatures will be in the cooler-than-average 70s and 80s. However, an area of high pressure will build in by the end of the week. We could see some locations hit the 90-degree mark by Thursday.
