ROANOKE, Va. – Following a stretch of really nice weather, Monday’s weather takes a bit of a turn. We’ll be overcast at times with cooler air being wedged in at the surface. Most of us will see afternoon temperatures hanging out in the 40s.
As the air cools at the surface, more rain will move in from the west. This will be patchy at first around 8 p.m. Temperatures may be just cool enough for patches of freezing rain in areas west of the Parkway throughout the overnight.
If there is any ice accumulation, it will be on elevated surfaces. Ground temperatures are too high for any significant issues, thankfully. Tuesday starts wet for some, but showers turn less numerous. High temperatures will once again only reach the 40s.
We should thaw out during St. Patrick’s Day, as the wedge slowly erodes. Highs are expected to generally reach 60-65°.
