March’s final week features subtle temperature changes in between weak storm systems

Frost will be possible Wednesday and Thursday mornings before temperatures rise into the 70s by the weekend

ROANOKE, Va. – We’re tracking a weak storm system riding to our south Monday. Most of the energy in the atmosphere is poured into areas south of us, but a few showers will be possible during the morning hours.

Scattered showers expected Monday morning

A separate piece of energy may generate isolated showers during the afternoon. Otherwise, we expect a partly cloudy sky.

We’ll turn breezy at times with gusts of 20 to 30 mph late Monday afternoon into the early part of the evening.

Another piece of energy above will may generate some light rain showers Tuesday night (maybe some wet snowflakes above the 3,000 foot level). Other than that, expect Tuesday to be cooler and cloudy.
