ROANOKE, Va. – Following periods of showers and storms this past weekend, we get a break from the action Monday.
After patches of fog early in the morning, sunshine goes to work and puts temperatures in the 80s across much of the area. The exception to that will be the mountains, where highs reach the middle to upper 70s.
Tuesday will be quite warm as well, but a front nearby will help to squeeze the warmth and humidity out in the form of scattered showers and storms after 2 p.m.
That chance lingers into Wednesday afternoon and evening as well after temperatures peak in the 80s.
Later in the week, we’ll track an area of low pressure that’s mostly cut off from the rest of the air flow above us. This means periods of rain and storms will be likely from Thursday night through possibly as late as Sunday morning.
With low pressure likely moving east of the area by Mother’s Day, we’re forecasting decreasing clouds and overall pleasant weather. Highs reach the 60s and 70s for Mom!
