ROANOKE, Va. – So far, this week has offered us the perfect combination of cool mornings and warm, bright afternoons.
This trend continues Wednesday with high temperatures reaching the 70s after starting out in the 40s.
Come Thursday, clouds will increase and thicken throughout the day. This will limit temperatures to the 60s during the afternoon and evening.
A few showers and pockets of drizzle will develop during the evening and nighttime hours.
This comes as we track the same storm that brought us severe weather last week. It’s unlikely to bring us severe weather this time, but it will send periodic rain in our direction Friday.
Plan on rain gear just in case for any commencement/graduation ceremonies you attend.
While a few stray showers can’t be ruled out Saturday morning, most of the showers and storms will occur during the second half of the day.
As this storm moves northeast of the area, the overall amount of showers and storms will become more hit-or-miss Sunday. This allows us the opportunity to warm up.
Keep your fingers crossed that the clouds clear out Sunday night in time for the total lunar eclipse. Times for the eclipse are listed below.
