ROANOKE, Va. – Happy Sunday and, more importantly, Happy Mother’s Day to all of the fabulous moms out there! The forecast is panning out pretty well for your special day.

We had a warm front pass through the area overnight, sparking a quick round of showers and storms. We’ll keep a small shower chance in the forecast for the first hour or two around sunrise.

Behind the front, we’ll see southerly breezes through the day, which will aid a nice warm-up. Look for highs in the 70s to near 80 this afternoon!

As another storm system and front approach from the west, we’ll see clouds build and showers and storms develop late in the day and into tonight.

It’s doubtful we see any severe weather out of this, but don’t be surprised by downpours and/or lightning.

As the front sinks south on Monday, there could be an isolated severe storm or two in Southside. We’ll be watching that zone for wind damage and/or large hail.

Rain chances will be lower the further north you go.

Behind the front, look for cooler air to filter in for the middle of the week. We’ll have highs in the 60s across much of the region from Tuesday through Thursday.
