ROANOKE, Va. – Another cold front took Thursday’s wet and wintry weather and pushed it east of us. Now in its wake, we’re turning windier and colder.

Peak wind gusts Friday will range between 25 and 35 mph at times, knocking over lightweight trash cans, basketball nets, etc.

A wind out of the west and southwest will pump that warmer air into the region.

High temperatures will be around 10 to 15° throughout much of next week

Our next shot of rain looks to arrive late next Wednesday into next Thursday. Snow avoids us - much like it has all winter - through at least the next several days.
