It will be a clear and dry evening across Southwest Virginia. However, a few spotty showers are possible Tuesday afternoon.
Rain cleared out of the region by the afternoon and skies gradually cleared overhead. Those mostly clear skies will continue into the night with low temperatures expected to fall into the chilly upper 30s/mid 40s.
Winds will pick up Tuesday. While gusts will generally range from 20 – 25 mph, wind gusts from 30 -35 mph are possible at times. Plenty of sunshine is expected throughout much of the day. However, a cold front will pass through during the afternoon and a few spotty showers may make their way in. These showers are more likely west of the Blue Ridge Parkway, but a few may sneak their way eastward into Southside and Central Virginia. Afternoon highs will make their way into the 60s, but we could see a few low 70s in our Piedmont counties.
Winds will calm down overnight Tuesday into Wednesday morning. Due to the clear skies overhead during the night, low temperatures may fall into the cold 30s across Southwest Virginia. Patchy frost may develop in some spots by Wednesday morning.
An area of high pressure will move in Wednesday, which means more sunshine and dry weather. It won’t last long though, with rain slated for Thursday. Off and on showers are likely, especially for Thursday afternoon.
Rain will come to an end Friday morning and a mix of clouds and sunshine will be left behind. More rain chances are in the forecast for the weekend.
