Gusty wind brings in lower humidity at times Thursday into Friday

A refreshing breeze comes in on the back side of our passing storm system

ROANOKE, Va. – We’re tracking a cold front that won’t necessarily make things cold Thursday, but it will bring a welcomed change in humidity levels.

We start the day out very muggy, but our drier air blows in on a northwest breeze that - at times - could gust between 20 and 30 mph.

Highs Thursday will range from the 70s in the mountains to low to mid 80s everywhere else.

The cool thing (literally) about lower humidity is that temperatures can drop more. Come Friday morning, we’ll awaken to temperatures in the 50s.

We’ll start the day Friday with sunshine. As the day progresses, clouds increase ahead of yet another storm system.

We’ll be on the northern end of the storm Saturday, meaning that our severe weather potential is lower than parts of the Carolinas. That said, we expect some showery weather at times Saturday.

Once that storm passes, we’ll turn warmer and drier Sunday. That will be the better pool day of the weekend.

Heading into next week, a strong area of high pressure anchors itself over the Eastern U.S. This will lead to more heat through at least the first half of next week.
