Front to bring showers, brief break from smoky haze, drop in humidity

One weak front makes a difference in our weather starting Wednesday

ROANOKE, Va. – A weak front passing through the area will start by bringing occasional rain showers to areas along and south of US 460 Wednesday. Most showers pass south of Virginia by around suppertime.

While the air quality starts out unhealthy for some (due to wildfire smoke being blown south from Quebec and Ontario), it will briefly improve throughout the day Wednesday.

Air quality forecast at 8 a.m. Wednesday

That said, it appears as though our smoky haze will return to the area Thursday.

You can send your pictures of it to Pin It, and we’ll showcase them on air and online.

Aside from that, temperatures will be held in the 70s Wednesday and Thursday afternoons.

High temperature forecast through Thursday, June 8, 2023

We’ll awaken to temperatures in the 40s and 50s Thursday through Saturday mornings, which is well below average for early June.

Friday will still be in the 70s, while some of us make it into the 80s Saturday. Most of us will be well into the 80s Sunday.

Pool forecast through Sunday, June 11, 2023

A few late day/evening showers can’t be ruled out Sunday, but they’ll be isolated. The better chance arrives Monday as low pressure flings moisture our way.
