ROANOKE, Va. – Wednesday was the hottest day in nearly two years in the Roanoke Valley, while storms continued to bubble up in the heat of the day.
Thursday will be quite hot as well, though probably not as brutal as what we saw Wednesday. Even still, the heat index approaches triple digits outside of the mountains.
Storms Thursday will be fewer than what we’ve seen in recent days.
That said, they’ll become strong-to-severe where they do develop. That chance is slightly higher east of the Blue Ridge Parkway during the afternoon and evening.
Scattered storms remain in the forecast for both Friday and Saturday.
Humidity levels finally drop Sunday and Monday. It won’t feel like fall out there, but it will at least provide some relief from the soupiness we’ve felt recently.
Heat, humidity, and some storms return by the middle of next week.
