Happy Valentine’s Day! Tracking slick spots early on, then a few rain showers later

You may want to consider having an umbrella handy for any date night plans

ROANOKE, Va. – Happy Sunday, and more importantly, happy Valentine’s Day! Our latest wintry weather event is in the rearview mirror, although some of you are still dealing with power outages associated with the ice storm.

With temperatures falling close to 32° overnight, any leftover liquid on sidewalks and roadways may have refrozen. Be extra careful as you get your day started!

I doubt roads will be much of a concern later today (even with rain showers in the forecast, which I’ll get to in a second) or Monday morning.

Temperatures warm to the upper 30s by lunchtime and we’ll peak in the low 40s by 2 or 3 p.m. Even though these temperatures are below-average, I think they’ll warm your heart a bit after our recent cold stretch.

A piece of atmospheric energy will spark a few showers in the afternoon and evening, especially across Southside. Consider grabbing an umbrella for you and your sweetie if you have date night plans!

We could see another piece of energy bring some showers during the day tomorrow. The chances are pegged at 40 percent right now.
