ROANOKE, Va. – We’re tracking a round of morning rain slowly moving south to north. This has formed on the outer edges of an area of low pressure.
Once this low pressure system moves north and east of here, we’ll be on its west side. That’s where the air sinks, leading to breaks of sunshine and temperatures in the 60s.
We’ll be in between weather systems Friday, with a southerly breeze gusting 20 to 30 mph at times.
That will push temperatures into the upper 60s in the mountains and low to mid 70s elsewhere.
A front pushes through the area late Friday night and Saturday morning, sparking a few hit or miss showers. Other than that, we’re dry and breezy.
That breeze coming down the mountains will keep us warm Saturday. Eventually, cooler air catches up just in time for the first day of spring (Sunday).
Temperatures reach the 50s and 60s for highs by then.
