ROANOKE, Va. – Meteorological summer is in full swing and many of us have felt the summer heat a few days so far this season.

After Saturday, Danville has now hit 90 degrees five times, while Lynchburg and Roanoke have reached the “hot” threshold thrice.

We’re forecast to be hot once again as we wrap up the first weekend in June.

Lynchburg is expected to be the hottest community today, while Roanoke, Southside and parts of the Highlands could all join the Hill City in the low 90s.

The New River Valley will be a touch cooler, but still quite warm with a high in the mid 80s.

The summertime heat will coincide with isolated showers and storms during the afternoon and evening. We don’t expect any severe weather today.
