ROANOKE, Va. – In my opinion, the weather has been pretty nice the past couple of days! The good times roll on as we kick off another weekend.
High pressure is in control today and we’ll start the day with cool temperatures and plenty of sunshine.
The midday and afternoon will feature a warm-up to the 70s, along with extra clouds. We’re not expecting any rain today. Look for the wind to stay light and variable. All in all, a nice Saturday!
The high moves to the east on Sunday and some energy from the west pushes into our region. That means overcast skies and a 30-percent chance of showers. Have the umbrella handy!
The more active weather is not good news for temperatures, as we’ll be six to eight degrees cooler for Sunday’s highs.
Higher shower and storm chances are in the forecast Monday and Tuesday. Luckily, the heaviest rain and severe weather stays well to our west.
Long-range models are hinting at a pattern shift to warmer and drier weather later in the week. Those who have been hoping for 70s and 80s to return for a few days will get their wish!
