ROANOKE, Va. – We started the weekend on an incredibly nice note with some sunshine and high temperatures in the 50s and 60s! The weather has taken a shift to start our Sunday, though.
Our latest storm system sent rain through the area overnight and some scattered showers could be around for the next few hours. Look for the faucet to be shut off around midday.
We’ll have much cooler temperatures this afternoon. Look for highs to range from the upper 40s to low 50s across our corner of the Commonwealth. The clouds could break up just enough late in the day for some peeks of sunshine.
Some freezing drizzle and/or snow will be possible in the mountains today and tonight as our storm system pulls away to the northeast.
With the threat for wintry weather, the National Weather Service offices in Charleston, WV and Baltimore/Washington, D.C. have issued winter weather advisories for parts of Pocahontas and Highland Counties.
The weather looks relatively quiet for most of the work week, save for a stray rain or snow shower Tuesday. Temperatures will run at or slightly above-average through Thursday.
We’re tracking a storm system in the southeast for Friday.
The cold air looks marginal at this time, but models are hinting at the possibility of snow. The precipitation could end up being plain old rain or a mix, too.
We’ll provide updates through the week as this system gets closer.
