Fans of summer will have to hold onto the weather we get Friday. High temperatures will vary depending on elevation, as the New River Valley and Highlands reach 80-85° and the rest of us hit 85-90°.

Forecast for Friday afternoon

A front passing through the area will be enough to spark just a couple spotty downpours late in the afternoon. We’re dry and breezy most of the day.

FutureTracker for Friday afternoon

A wind out of the west will choke the moisture and prevent any significant or widespread showers and storms from developing.

Once our front clears the area, humidity levels drop off and make for a gorgeous Labor Day weekend.
