ROANOKE, Va. (WFXR) – High pressure will remain in control of our weather for most of the work week. Sunshine and heat are expected through Friday.

A slight spike in humidity is expected for the daytime hours on Tuesday, but relief is expected again on Wednesday. The humidity will make it feel three to five degrees warmer than the actual air temperature.

Temperatures for Tuesday look to be three to five degrees above average, but we get slight relief on Wednesday before the heat builds back in for the end of the week.

The hottest day of the week is expected on Friday when forecast high temperatures are within a couple of degrees of records. Any increase in the forecast could mean new records, especially for Roanoke, Lynchburg, and Danville.

Temperatures will fall back to near average this weekend as a cold front moves into the region. There will be a chance for showers and storms on both days with higher chances on Saturday.

The tropics remain active with a couple of storms churning away and another area that could form. Right now, none of these look to impact our forecast for the week ahead, but heavy rain is possible for the Gulf Coast.
