Occasional, scattered showers and storms develop Tuesday, Wednesday

Localized flooding or severe weather will be possible, especially by Wednesday

ROANOKE, Va. – We’ve been spoiled the last three days with cool, refreshing mornings and comfortably warm afternoons.

A slow-moving front will change that Tuesday and Wednesday. It’s not to say it will be wet the entire time, but there will be the chance for occasionally scattered showers and storms.


A weakening cluster of storms will throw more clouds and some showers in our direction through midday Tuesday. Any storms that form in the warmth of the day after that will be pretty scattered.

High temperatures Tuesday only reach the 70s across much of the area, due to the abundance of cloud cover.

Our front still lingers nearby Wednesday. That, in tandem with more warmth and moisture, will trigger another round of afternoon, evening and late night showers and storms.

Showers and storms reform Wednesday afternoon and evening

Localized flooding, wind damage or hail cannot be ruled out.

Possible threats with any storms Wednesday

Thursday and Friday will still be warm, but humidity levels will be lower than what they’ll be Wednesday.

They’ll climb back up Friday night into Saturday, as another front triggers showers and storms.

Higher humidity levels, rain chances Friday night into Saturday morning

Once that passes, humidity levels drop once again Sunday.

Much lower humidity levels through the rest of the weekend

Highs will be in the 70s and 80s each afternoon this weekend. Morning temperatures, especially Sunday, will only start out in the 50s.

A strong area of high pressure then builds over the Central U.S., which will likely lead to more consistent warmth or heat heading into Father’s Day weekend.
