The past couple of days have given Southwest Virginia plenty of sunshine. However, rain returns to the forecast.
Afternoon temperatures warmed up into the spring-like 60s across the region Friday afternoon. A mix of clouds and sunshine were overhead for much of the day, as well as breezy winds. As we head into the evening hours, clouds will increase and rain is possible overnight. At least we don’t have to worry about freezing overnight temperatures, which are expected to fall into the mid to upper 40s and low 50s.
A cool front will move through overnight into Saturday morning, bringing in rain from the northwest. We’re mainly looking at the chance for light to moderate rainfall, so little impacts are expected. Much of the rain should come to an end before noon. Clouds will break apart once the wet weather moves out and more sunshine is slated for the afternoon hours. High temperatures will be a bit cooler, reaching the 50s and low 60s.
Clouds will increase again on Sunday and rain will return during the later afternoon/evening hours. Widespread rain is possible as we head into Monday and we could see some pockets of heavy rainfall at times. There is the chance for stormy weather down toward our southern state (Alabama, Mississippi, Georgia, etc.) and we may even hear a few rumbles of thunder in Southwest Virginia. However, we’re generally just looking at rain.
We’ll see more sunshine for Tuesday and Wednesday, with high temperatures warming up close to the 70 degree mark.
