ROANOKE, Va. – Monday was just about the perfect start to the week, but Tuesday will offer up more clouds.

Even still, temperatures won’t suffer too much. Most of the area will top out between 60 and 65° during the afternoon.

High temperature forecast for Tuesday, 3/23/2021

Between a stalled system offshore and a weak disturbance to our west, we’ll see clouds thicken later on along with the possibility for a few stray showers heading into Wednesday morning.

Beyond that, most of Wednesday is dry with more clouds and similar temperatures to Tuesday.

Warmer air continues to lift north ahead of a slow-moving front. Eventually, that front will be close enough to produce showers and possibly storms late Thursday in the western half of our area.
