Showers to start the week, breezy conditions for Tuesday

Weather Blog

Rain will be off and on at times for Monday. However, not everyone will experience the wet precipitation. Rain chances aren’t as high in Southside Virginia. The greatest potential for rain will be in the Alleghany Highlands, especially in Pocahontas and Greenbrier counties and north of Roanoke/Lynchburg/Bluefield.

Temperatures will rise throughout Monday, reaching the upper 40s and mid 50s for the afternoon. Expect mild and wet conditions for Tuesday morning. Temperatures will be in the 50s to start the day and showers will move through. We’ll start to dry out around noon across Southwest Virginia. Winds will gust up (we could see the potential for Wind Advisories) and temperatures will fall during the afternoon and evening hours. Snow is possible along west-facing slopes Tuesday afternoon. Any accumulation is expected to be less than an inch.

Temperatures will start out in the freezing 20s for Wednesday morning, with afternoon temperatures in the upper 30s/mid 40s. More sunshine is in the forecast, but winds will be brisk at times. Dry weather persists in the forecast for the end of the work week. However, we’re keeping our eyes out for Saturday. We could see the chance for showers, and maybe even some snow, but models are still in disagreement. Keeping precipitation chances on the low side for this weekend.
