ROANOKE, Va. – I have good news and bad news in the forecast for the moms out there! The good: we’ll be much drier than Friday and Saturday.

The bad: clouds will remain locked in and it could be the coolest Mother’s Day on record.

Temperatures start in the 40s for many of us, before warming into the 50s during the afternoon.

Our forecast highs for Roanoke, Lynchburg and Danville would break the “record coolest high” for Mother’s Day.

Long-range forecast models are hinting at wetter weather finally returning by Friday and next weekend. This lines up well with the Climate Prediction Center (CPC) 6-10 day precipitation outlook.
