Windy end to the work week, storms return Saturday morning

Heat builds next week

ROANOKE, Va – The break from storm chances won't be long, but at least it's a break. Under sunny skies Friday, highs climb into the low-80s with decreasing humidity. The winds will stay gusty for most of Friday before relaxing overnight.


A few storm complexes will develop west of us and sneak into the region Saturday morning and afternoon.

A isolated damaging wind gust will be possible in the 77 corridor and parts of Southside as the first complex rolls through, likely Saturday morning.

A second complex has the potential to roll through later Saturday afternoon before the weather quiets down Saturday evening.

A few more storms are possible Sunday, but most are dry.


Saturday and Sunday may struggle to reach 80, but by Monday, the 90s surge back for most.
