ROANOKE, Va. – It feels like we’ve been talking about a pattern shift for ages and it’s finally arrived just in time for the weekend!

You may have a bit of a shock to the system when you walk out the door this morning as temperatures have bottomed out in the 50s.

We overcome the cool start by midday and afternoon as temperatures peak in the 70s and 80s. We also expect lots of sunshine throughout the day.
