First weekend of summer features typical temps, isolated downpours

The chance for hit-or-miss storms is slightly higher Sunday than Saturday

ROANOKE, Va. – Summer is just a few days old now, but we’re more-than used to the heat.

For example, Roanoke has already had two weeks worth of 90° heat - the most to this point in the year since the late 1950s.

Friday’s highs will be seasonable, thanks to a decrease in clouds from morning to afternoon.

Tropics Update

It’s been a relatively dormant start to the tropical season, but there is one storm system of interest. The National Hurricane Center says this storm north of the Equator has a 50% chance of developing within the next five days. This is a development region that’s more typical of August and September - not late June.
