ROANOKE, Va. – The weather the last couple of days has been an absolute treat, but we’re not quite done getting a taste of it yet.
High pressure gradually shifts northeast, allowing a few more clouds to move in with each passing day.
That said, Friday and Saturday will still be quite pleasant with highs in the 80s.
This sets the stage for a beautiful evening for Week 2 of high school football.
Come Sunday, we’ll watch as a front stalls nearby.
Low pressure feeding moisture toward the front will result in increasing storm chances. For Sunday, those chances are higher during the afternoon and evening in areas along and west of the Blue Ridge Parkway.
More numerous showers enter the forecast for Labor Day, and they may not just be confined to the afternoon hours.
Check back with Justin and Marshall, as well as our weather app, throughout the weekend for updates.
Meanwhile, the tropics are starting to gain some steam. Tropical Storm Danielle formed Thursday, and won’t have an impact on U.S. soil.
Two other tropical waves are being tracked by NOAA’s National Hurricane Center. One has a 70% chance of development, but that won’t impact U.S. soil either.
