ROANOKE, Va. (WFXR) — Spring-like weather is back in the forecast for Southwest and Central Virginia.
You may want to grab a coat or jacket as you head out the door Monday morning. Temperatures will start in the chilly 30s and lower 40s. However, a breeze out of the south will help afternoon temperatures rebound into the warmer 70s. Mostly sunny skies will be overhead throughout much of the day.
Clouds will increase Monday night, keeping overnight temperatures from getting too cold. By Tuesday morning, temperatures will be in the 50s. A few spotty showers cannot be ruled out for Tuesday, but not everyone will see rain. Skies will be partly to mostly cloudy. Otherwise, it will be breezy and warm with highs in the 70s. A few spots in Central Virginia and Southside could flirt with the 80-degree mark.
Wednesday will be similar to Tuesday. Morning temperatures will start in the 50s before warming up into the 70s and lower 80s during the afternoon. It will be breezy at times with a couple of spotty rain showers possible.
A cold front will approach from the west Thursday. Southwest and Central Virginia will mainly see the chance for scattered showers. However, a few thunderstorms may develop. The severe weather risk is fairly low for the region. High temperatures will be in the 60s and into the mid-70s.
Although it won’t be as warm for the end of the week, temperatures will still be spring-like. A mix of sun and clouds will be overhead for Friday with highs in the 60s and lower 70s.
There is a slight chance for showers Saturday into Easter Sunday, but we’re not expecting washouts at this time for any Easter egg hunts that may be going on during the weekend. Rain chances look to be a bit higher late Sunday, though. Morning temperatures will be in the 40s and lower 50s Saturday and Sunday. Afternoon highs will be in the 60s and lower 70s on both days.
