ROANOKE, Va. – Happy Sunday! We’re tracking two fronts that are projected to pass through the area over the next 24 hours or so. Both of these boundaries will provide changes in temperatures, as well as rounds of rain, mainly in the mornings.

Let’s start with the warm front, which is expected to pass through this afternoon and/or evening. Out ahead of the front, we’re getting some rain as I type this and rounds of wet weather are in the forecast through midday.

I believe today will be similar to yesterday in that the afternoon is pretty dry, although it will be cloudy.

The front is not projected to move north as quickly as previous forecasts. Therefore, I have brought our highs for this afternoon down slightly.

Southside still has a chance at the low 70s, while everyone else is likely to peak in the 60s. Here’s where the front is projected to be at 5 p.m.

Future Tracker Sunday 5 p.m. (Copyright 2021 by WSLS 10 - All rights reserved.)

Once the warm front lifts north, we’ll be tracking the cold front out to the west. Rain develops again overnight through the early stages of Monday.
