ROANOKE, Va. (WFXR) — High pressure will influence the weather pattern in Southwest and Central Virginia for the next few days. Expect chilly mornings and milder afternoons ahead.

Due to clear skies and light winds Thursday night, Friday will start with frigid morning temperatures in the cold 20s and lower 30s. Warm southerly flow and sunny skies will help afternoon temperatures to rise into the seasonably cool upper 50s and lower 60s.

Saturday will start chilly with morning lows in the upper 20s and lower 30s. By the afternoon, highs will be in the milder 60s and lower 70s. It won’t be as cold Sunday morning with lows in the upper 30s and 40s. However, more temperatures in the 60s and lower 70s are slated for the afternoon. For both days, mostly to partly sunny skies will be overhead.

As a reminder, daylight saving time ends on Sunday, November 5th at 2:00 a.m. Before you head to bed on Saturday, make sure to turn your clock back one hour. This is also a good time to change the batteries in your smoke and carbon monoxide detectors.

Monday looks to be mostly dry with afternoon highs in the 60s and lower 70s. A storm system to the north will bring variably cloudy skies to the region, but precipitation chances are low. Slightly warmer temperatures are expected Tuesday with highs in the upper 60s and middle 70s.

A cold front will have the chance to move through the region by the middle of the upcoming week. A few isolated showers are possible on Wednesday and Thursday, but it doesn’t look to be the soaker we need to alleviate drought conditions in Southwest and Central Virginia.

Breezy winds and cooler air are expected behind the passing cold front. Temperatures will be cooler by the end of next week.
