ROANOKE, Va. – Tuesday morning starts out much colder than Monday morning did, thanks to a clearer sky and a calmer wind.
Seasonable chill then lasts into the afternoon with highs in the 50s.
Meanwhile, a severe weather outbreak takes aim at parts of the Deep South and Mid-South Tuesday afternoon and evening.
Rain feeds off that system heading into Wednesday morning. Our severe weather threat, however, is pretty close to zero.
The afternoon trends drier and warmer with highs mostly in the 50s and 60s.
The wind picks up as well during the afternoon and evening, as gusts peak between 25 and 40 mph.
That, combined with a rush of cold air, leads to lower wind chills first thing Thursday morning.
Highs will be in the 40s Thursday afternoon, with temperatures dropping into the 20s first thing Friday morning.
Outside of a few showers Saturday, the weekend weather is fairly uneventful.
Another round of cool rain showers arrives early next week.
