ROANOKE, Va. – This past week’s weather has been an absolute treat for fall-lovers in southwest and central Virginia.
While humidity levels come up just a tick Friday, the weather still cooperates quite nicely.
The only fly in the ointment is an increase in haze from wildfires in California. Air quality is not a big concern, but this haze could enhance the color of the sky around sunrise and/or sunset the next few days.
Other than that, enjoy a beautiful evening for Week 4 of high school football!
Remember to check back with us for highlights and post-game reaction on 1st and 10 at 11:10.
The football and fun continues Saturday with tailgating starting early at Virginia Tech. 7 a.m. temperatures will be in the 50s.
Kickoff temperatures will be around 70°. We’ll turn warmer by midday for VMI’s kickoff and by the afternoon for the Sunflower Festival at Beaver Dam Farm.
Sunday begins a warming trend that really takes off in the final days of summer/first few days of fall. This is all courtesy of high pressure over the Southern U.S.
While a stray shower is possible Tuesday or Thursday, the bulk of next week will be dry too. It’ll mainly be warm/hot.
In fact, some parts of the area could touch 90° on the last day of summer and the first day of fall.
