ROANOKE, Va. (WFXR) — It will definitely feel more like summer outside Wednesday. Remember to stay cool, hydrated, and weather aware.
It will be a mild and foggy start to Wednesday with morning temperatures in the upper 50s and lower 60s. A few rain showers are possible during the morning. Otherwise, skies will be partly sunny with afternoon highs in the lower and middle 70s in the Alleghany Highlands and New River Valley. Elsewhere, highs will be in the lower and middle 80s.
There is the chance for spotty pop-up afternoon showers and storms, but rain chances will be lower than Tuesday. Most of these storms will develop in parts of Southside Virginia.
Thursday will be mostly dry with variably cloudy skies overhead. It won’t be as warm outside as slightly cooler air makes its way into the region. Highs will mainly be in the 70s, which is seasonably warm for the beginning of May. Clouds will increase during the evening.
Periods of rain and cooler temperatures are in the forecast for Friday. A few storms may come into the mix, too. Most of the widespread rain is slated to move through during the afternoon and evening. High temperatures will be in the upper 60s and 70s.
Off-and-on rain remains in the forecast Saturday with highs in the cooler-than-average 60s. While a few thunderstorms cannot be ruled out, cloudiness and cooler temperatures will hamper our chances for storm development.
Spotty rain showers may linger into the morning hours on Mother’s Day. Overall, it will be cloudy and cooler Sunday with high temperatures in the 60s. A bit of sunshine may peek out later in the day as clouds gradually decrease.
