Update from Chris Michaels
Heat and humidity are packing a one-two punch, making it feel more like July or August out there.
As the wind dies down overnight, expect some patchy fog and haze to develop with lows in the 60s. Evening plans, beforehand, look good to go!
With the air coming onshore from the south and southeast, temperatures may not heat up quite as high. Still, expect highs in the mid to possibly upper 80s in the afternoon.
There will be a few scattered showers and storms around to cool things down briefly. Expect heavy rain, lightning and possibly some small hail/gusty wind with whatever develops. Not everyone gets wet!
Come Sunday, we're dry. But we're breezy and downright hot. We'll likely be in the low to mid 90s from Roanoke and points south and east. The NRV and Highlands will top out in the mid to upper 80s.
Sunday night, a few storms from Ohio may skirt northern areas. They should weaken as they get closer, though.
We'll stay breezy and hot on Memorial Day, as temperatures rise from around 70 in the morning to 86-91° during the afternoon. A few spotty storms will be possible.
Tuesday and Wednesday offer no break from the heat, as temperatures warm into the 90s (mid to upper 80s higher elevations).
A front to the west ought to change things for us later in the week. It's likely that the front will lag long enough to allow for one more hot day Thursday. By Friday, this front should give us a better chance at scattered showers and storms with temps in the 80s.
