Not quite as hot as storm chances increase slightly to wrap up the holiday weekend
We're coming off the hottest day of the year so far in Roanoke as the mercury hit 94 degrees on the 4th of July. It won't be quite as hot today, but still above-average. Look for highs to peak in the low 90s. A cold front will be draped across the area, causing more clouds to be around and some storms to spark during the afternoon and evening. The coverage doesn't look all that high and severe weather risk is very low.
Daily storm chances stay in our forecast into the first full week of July. The late part of the week and next weekend could be interesting as a system currently in the Gulf moves up the East Coast. Too early to say exactly what that will mean for us, but we will tweak temperatures and rain chances accordingly when we get a better idea.
