ROANOKE, Va. – Welcome to the weekend!

Following two breezy days, the wind will be calmer throughout the day Saturday. That’s allowed temperatures to drop first thing in the morning, so at least you won’t be sweating profusely during the Blue Ridge Marathon.

We’ll see more clouds drifting in north of a storm system that will produce a limited severe threat along the Gulf Coast.

Here, temperatures will be just slightly below average for mid April. Highs will reach the 60s for many of us, with still some upper 50s left over in the New River Valley.

A few stray showers will become possible as we head later in the day, but it’s still no reason to cancel any weekend plans.
