ROANOKE, Va. – The same front that brought storms and torrential downpours to the North Carolina-Virginia line Sunday is going to be a player in our weather Monday too. A disturbance riding along this front will trigger occasional showers throughout the morning in areas close to and south of US-460.
This, along with additional clouds, will keep temperatures in check throughout the day. Highs will range from the upper 70s to the middle 80s Monday afternoon.
Once high pressure gains a little more control of our weather Tuesday, we’ll trade patches of fog in the morning for a mix of clouds and sun by the afternoon. Temperatures will rise more Tuesday than they will Monday afternoon.
Our stalled front will essentially be washed out by another front to the north later this week. This will help lower humidity levels a bit to a more tolerable range.
Despite that drop in humidity, it will still be quite hot mid-to-late week. Highs area-wide will top out in the 86-92° range with minimal rain chances.
This should make for plenty of time out by the pool, sprinkler, car wash, ball field, grill, etc. Be sure, as always, to keep checking back for forecast updates, radar and alerts by downloading our weather app.
