Additional rounds of rain a relief for some, flooding for others

Our soggy week has its pros and cons in southwest and central Virginia

Flooding outlook through Thursday, 6/22/2023

ROANOKE, Va. – We continue to track an area of low pressure to our south that supplies us with ample moisture and rounds of rain through Friday.

At the same time, high pressure to the north will send in unseasonably cool air from the north Wednesday.

Summer solstice 2023 could be coolest on record

As moisture overruns that cooler air, we’ll see periods of off and on rain Wednesday. Localized flooding will be possible for areas that have already seen inches of rain.

By Thursday, most of our rain and storms will come in during the afternoon. That’s also likely to be the case Friday as we turn warmer.

Showers and storms develop Thursday afternoon

When all is said and done, we expect several more inches of rain in areas along and south of Interstate 81.

Additional rain from Tuesday evening through Friday night

Heading into the weekend, this pesky area of low pressure pulls away. This will allow us to warm up, and it will also help bring rain chances down to more isolated/typical summer-time levels.
