ROANOKE, Va. – Parts of the area received a good dose of rain Monday afternoon and evening as a front passed through.
That front, however, wasn’t the kind to cool things down. High temperatures Tuesday will be similar to what we saw Monday afternoon.
Clouds decrease from morning to afternoon. A little leftover energy in the atmosphere may trigger a few isolated thunderstorms, though they won’t be as numerous as they were Monday.
Come Wednesday, the wind picks up a little bit. That wind comes down the mountains, adding a few degrees to our high temperatures.
A second front teams up with the leftover warmth and humidity late at night into Thursday morning and gives us the chance for showers and storms.
Once that front clears, the wind continues to come down the mountains. Thursday will be very hot again with most any scattered storms in Southside and Eastern Virginia.
High pressure continues to strengthen over the Central Plains later in the week. We’ll be on the outer edge of that heading into the weekend.
Areas outside of the mountains could wind up reaching the mid to upper 90s this weekend, so you’ll want to be near a pool, lake, river, sprinkler, etc.
We’ll continue to provide you with customized text and video updates on our weather app.
