ROANOKE, Va. – Low humidity levels have made things feel very refreshing for us this weekend, including at nighttime. Heading into Monday morning, temperatures challenge a 100 year-old record for places like Danville and Lynchburg. In Roanoke and Blacksburg, temperatures would have to drop into the 40s for records to be broken overnight.

More typical summer temperatures are expected, though, this week. Humidity levels will be comfortable Monday, tolerable Tuesday and more typical of July mid to late this week.
