ROANOKE, Va. – For the second time in about a week, parts of the Deep South and Tennessee River Valley are under the gun for a significant severe weather outbreak.

That same storm system will give us some afternoon showers Thursday, but the severe threat for our area at that time will be quite low.

Temperatures, meanwhile, will reach into the 60s and 70s area-wide prior to any afternoon showers.

We’ll likely see a bit of a break in the action early Thursday evening before the bulk of our rain settles in at night.

Some storms will be possible after 9 or 10 p.m. through the wee morning hours Friday, but warm air above us should put a cap on the potential for any widespread severe weather.
