ROANOKE, Va. – Following Monday’s 80° warmth, many of us won’t see that again for quite some time. In fact, temperatures will likely drop a few degrees throughout the day Tuesday in parts of the New River Valley, Roanoke Valley and Highlands.
This, as we track a potent cold front moving through the area. Moisture riding the front will start us off with showers and rumbles of thunder in the aforementioned areas through the first half of the day.
By the afternoon, we’ll be tracking a line (or a broken line) of heavy rain slowly moving from west to east.
This may make the evening commute a little dicey at times. As we head deeper into the night, the rain turns a little lighter and gradually moves out of the area.
