ROANOKE, Va. – A Nor’Easter is dumping snow on parts of New England Friday. A fraction of the wind will be around in southwest and central Virginia, keeping temperatures similar to where they were Thursday afternoon.
So, after starting in the 30s and 40s in the morning, we’ll rise into the 50s and 60s by the afternoon.
The wind will calm at night, allowing temperatures to drop quickly. How low temperatures drop depends on how quickly clouds can move in. The quicker they move in, the less temperatures will drop (and vice versa).
Therefore, we expect 30s and 40s once again Saturday morning with patches of frost. It will be a chilly start to the Blue Ridge Marathon, with temperatures rising into the 50s by 11 a.m.
Clouds will increase throughout the day Saturday, but rain showers will be limited later in the day. Most of the weekend, in fact, will be dry with temperatures stuck in the 50s and 60s each afternoon.
