ROANOKE, Va. – Following yet another stretch of wet weather, we’re finally starting to see some improvements in the pattern.

While Tuesday won’t exactly be warm, it won’t be wet either. Expect high temperatures across the board to be in the upper 40s and lower 50s - close to average for early March.

High temperature forecast for Tuesday, 3/2/2021

A storm east of the Rockies should keep some high level clouds in the area from time to time throughout the day.

That same storm is likely to just miss us to the south Wednesday morning, though we’re keeping the low chance of precipitation for areas south of US 460.

As that moves to the east, we’ll notice the wind pick up a little bit later Wednesday. However, we don’t expect it to be quite as strong as it was at times Monday.
