Pattern change: Rounds of rain, localized flooding expected throughout the week

Several inches of rain are expected between now and Friday

Expected rain totals between Monday night and Friday

ROANOKE, Va. – Several areas are inches below normal on rain in 2023, but this week’s pattern aims to fix that.

We are tracking a stagnant area of low pressure that will sit around the Eastern U.S. for the next several days. This will fling moisture in our direction off-an-on throughout the entire week.

Cut-off low pressure to send rounds of rain our way this week

This results in widespread rain at times Monday night, Tuesday, and Wednesday before becoming more scattered Thursday, Friday, and Saturday.

Localized flooding will be possible due to the heavy nature of the rain rising up some of our higher terrains.

Flood risk through Wednesday, 6/21/2023

Rain totals for the entire week will mostly be around 2-4″ or more, but some areas along the southern Blue Ridge could see more than half a foot of rain. Most of that falls through Wednesday.
