Wind finally backs off; first Sunday of spring to be pleasant

Outside of a few showers in Southside, Sunday looks terrific weather-wise

High temperature forecast for Sunday, 3/26/2023

ROANOKE, Va. – Saturday’s wind was enough to do damage in parts of the area, including the picture below from Hillsville.

Thankfully, the storm responsible for that wind has drifted to the north. A front trailing behind it will be responsible for a few stray showers between 1 p.m. and 3 p.m. in Southside.

Few showers possible in Southside between 1 and 3 p.m. Sunday

The rest of the area will stay pleasant throughout the day Sunday.

Another pulse of energy rides this front Monday morning, giving us the chance for a few scattered showers.

Outside of that, expect 70s for highs Sunday and 60s/lower 70s for highs Monday.

We turn cooler mid-week, though the chance for frost is higher Thursday morning. This is when the sky becomes clearest and the wind calmest.

As the wind shifts from the southwest Friday and Saturday, we’ll see high temperatures rise into the 70s again. A front nearby will trigger some passing showers Friday afternoon and perhaps again Saturday too.
