ROANOKE, Va. – After a beautiful weekend, temperatures continue to build this week as high pressure reigns over the Southern U.S.
While the humidity won’t be overbearing, highs will reach well into the 80s each afternoon.
In fact, by Wednesday, some of us will reach close to 90°.
Don’t get too used to that!
A strong cold front moves through Thursday, bringing a crash in temperatures and humidity levels. We may also see a few showers associated with the front Thursday afternoon.
We’ll turn breezy and cooler (and mostly dry) in time for Tech’s Thursday night matchup vs. West Virginia.
As the wind calms down, we expect temperatures to fall into the 40s across the entire area Saturday morning. (Some of us in the New River Valley and Highlands will feel that as soon as Friday morning!)
We’ll warm a bit into the first weekend of fall, which will be beautiful for the many fall festivals going on.
In addition, this strong cold front will guide Hurricane Fiona - which has made a direct impact on Puerto Rico - out to sea.
