Off and on showers make their way into Southwest Virginia Tuesday.
Rain chances increase for Tuesday as a cold front approaches the region. Light off and on rain showers will cause wet roadways, but impacts are on the low side. Not only is wet weather in the forecast, but winds will pick up as the cold front moves through the region. Winds are not expected to reach advisory criteria, but we will notice them increasing. Despite the cloudy skies and chance for rain, afternoon temperatures will, once again, reach the mild 60s. These spring-like temperatures will hang around in the forecast until the weekend.
For the week ahead, there is a chance for rain each day. A few spotty showers are possible Wednesday, but otherwise skies will be mostly cloudy and not everyone will even see rain for the middle of the week. Rain become likely late Thursday and into Friday morning. We could see more heavy rainfall during the overnight hours. A cold front will move through during the day Friday. Much of the wet weather will end shortly after the cold front passes and winds will pick up. Some clearing is expected later in the day.
Another system will impact Southwest Virginia for the weekend. While the timing of this system still needs to be ironed out, I have rain slated to return to the region late Saturday and continuing into Sunday and Monday.
