Scattered showers and storms to end Sunday, summer weather pattern continues

Weather Blog

Scattered showers and storms move through for Sunday. Expect summer-like conditions for the week ahead.

The Storm Prediction Center has lowered the severe weather risk for Southwest Virginia. However, a few isolated storms could still become strong to severe. The main concerns with these storms will be damaging winds and heavy rainfall, capable of leading to flash flooding. Otherwise, we’re mainly looking at scattered showers moving in from the west Sunday afternoon and into the evening hours. Much of the rain should end around midnight.

Monday is shaping up to be a hot one! Afternoon temperatures will range from the 80s and into the low 90s. There is a slight chance for a few spotty showers and storms during the afternoon. A mixture of sunshine and clouds will be overhead across Southwest and Central Virginia. More stubborn cloud cover will be over the New River Valley.

The summer-like weather pattern persists for the next seven days. High temperatures will be in the upper 80s in the Roanoke Valley, Southside, and Central Virginia while 80s are expected in the New River Valley and Alleghany Highlands. Showers and storms are possible each day, mainly during the afternoon hours.

As we approach the 4th of July holiday, models are suggesting we could see some storms develop during the day. We’ll continue to keep you updated on the forecast as we get closer to the holiday.
