ROANOKE, Va. – You’ve made it to the weekend! It’s a cool start outside as many are waking up to temperatures in the 40s.

Make it a warm cup of coffee if you need a Saturday morning pick-me-up. Sunrise will be at 6:51 a.m. today.

Temperatures should be quick to warm up through the morning and into the midday and afternoon. We’re looking at highs in the low to mid 70s.

I hear there’s a big game in Blacksburg at noon! The #25 Liberty Flames visit the Hokies in the Lynchburg squad’s toughest test thus far. The weather should be absolutely perfect for the players, staff and limited attendees.

The weather looks very similar Sunday, with perhaps the only fly in the ointment being some fog early on.

We’re going to be tracking the rise of moisture, clouds and rain chances into the work week. This is all going to be associated with Eta’s move into the Gulf, where it will stall into the middle of the week and send tropical moisture our way.
