ROANOKE, Va. – We’ve had numerous storms to dodge the past couple of days and more storm chances are in our forecast to wrap up the weekend.
The good news is we don’t believe the storms will be as widespread as they were Friday and Saturday. We’ll have scattered storms west of the Blue Ridge Parkway and isolated storms east.
In addition to the rain chances, we’re looking at another very warm and humid day across the region. Here’s how you can plan your day.
Any storm that develops west of the Parkway could carry the risk of localized flooding. We also could get some lightning with storms this afternoon.
Other forms of severe weather appear unlikely today.
The main story Monday and Tuesday will be the heat as more areas could rise into the low 90s. There won’t be much rain either day to cool us off.
A midweek cold front will be our next big weather-maker. It’s likely to soak us Wednesday into Thursday.
The front will also help trigger a pattern shift! We’re expecting cooler and less humid air by Friday and next weekend.
