ROANOKE, Va. – We’ve gone 10 straight days without a drop of rain, which has led to brush fire concerns at times in recent days. Friday offers little in the way of relief, with temperatures only dropping a little bit compared to the past couple of days.

Highs range from the low to mid 60s in the New River Valley to the low to mid 70s in Southside.

High temperature forecast for Friday, 3/12/2021

A weak front from the north will spark a few showers (spotty in the morning) mainly in the afternoon and early evening south of US 460.

Once the front moves south, we’ll see times of clouds and sun over the weekend. Temperatures won’t rise quite as much as they have in recent days, but it also won’t necessarily be cold.
