Delta departs; two fronts reinforce autumnal air throughout the week

We are tracking a pair of fronts that each bring some different changes to our weather

Humidity levels drop Tuesday into Wednesday

ROANOKE, Va. – Following our sixth round of tropical remnants this season, we’ll gradually see some changes throughout the week that lead to more favorable fall weather. Monday, however, starts with a Dense Fog Advisory for areas closest to I-77 until 10 a.m.

Dense Fog Advisory for Monday, 10/12/2020

Make sure to use extra caution and avoid using high beams if you run into some thicker pockets of fog this morning. Other parts of the area are seeing some fog and mist as well, thanks to the moisture that Delta has brought.

Only a few showers are expected throughout the day as the remnants of Delta depart to the east. We’ll keep the clouds around for the most part with highs in the upper 60s and lower 70s.

The front that helps push the remnants of Delta out of here will move in Tuesday morning, with mostly mountain showers early on. We’ll start with clouds and pockets of fog once again.

As the front clears the area, though, the weather turns nicer and certainly less humid. We’ll be in the 70s for daytime highs, but it will feel much more pleasant. Lows by Wednesday morning fall into the 40s, thanks to the drier air, clearer sky and calmer wind.
