ROANOKE, Va. – Wednesday starts drizzly and foggy in parts of southwest and central Virginia. As a system near the East Coast lifts north, any drizzle and fog will dissipate with temperatures rising to about 65-70° by the afternoon.
Expect similar warmth Thursday afternoon but with a bit of a catch. A very strong storm system will once again dig into the Deep South, producing severe weather there and in the Tennessee River Valley.
During that time, we could see a few showers and rumbles of thunder in southwest and central Virginia. Then, we’ll see a break in the action during the evening.
This system will lift north, producing perhaps a few storms in our area Thursday night after 9 or 10 o’clock. There’s the marginal threat for severe storms along and west of I-77.
