ROANOKE, Va. (WFXR) — Little change is expected in the weather forecast for the next few days, but we could see a pattern shift by the upcoming week.
Patchy fog will impact the Friday morning commute for some in Southwest and Central Virginia. Otherwise, our wedge will remain in place to end the workweek. This means we’ll generally see more clouds than sunshine for Friday. High temperatures will be in the upper 70s and low to mid 80s. It will still be on the muggy side, which will help with rain chances for the day. However, coverage will be hit-or-miss and much of the region will stay fairly dry. Any shower/storm that does develop could produce heavy rainfall, though.
The daily rain chances will stick around into the weekend, but it won’t be a washout. A few isolated showers, and maybe a thunderstorm, cannot be completely ruled out each day. Highs will remain consistent with temperatures in the upper 70s and into the mid 80s. Although we aren’t looking at hot 90s in the forecast, temperatures will still be above average for this time of year.
By Monday, we’ll start to notice rain chances increasing again, as well as temperatures starting to cool down. High temperatures for Monday will be in the upper 70s and lower 80s.
You’ll want to keep the umbrella on hand for the beginning of next week. The chance for off-and-on showers will linger in the forecast through Wednesday. We’re keeping our eyes on a cold front that is expected to push through the area by the middle of next week. Not only will this give the region a better chance for heavier rainfall, but it will also give us some fall-like temperatures to start the season.
