ROANOKE, Va. – A strong cold front moved through overnight. With it comes much colder air compared to the past few days.
Afternoon temperatures will range from the 30s to near 40° in the New River Valley to the upper 40s and lower 50s in Lynchburg and Southside.
Add the wind to that, and it will be like we stepped back a few months.
