Feeling tolerable this weekend. A little humid to start next week.

Allergies could spike up these next few days

If you are prone to allergies here is your heads up. Thanks to drier air and clear skies we will see an increase in reactions to ragweed and grasses.

Currently Tracking 4 Areas of Interest

We are also tracking the tropics. There are currently 4 areas of interest that the National Hurricane Center is monitoring. While these systems will not impact Roanoke, the system that is expected to move into the Gulf of Mexico will likely bring heavy rains and gusty winds to gulf coast states regardless of if any storm develops.

The other systems in the Atlantic will likely remain out to sea. However, the system moving into the Caribbean will have to be monitored for possible impacts to land.

A look at the next 7 days

Here is a look at the next 7 days. A warm weekend in store, but temperatures heat up to the mid-upper 90s by Monday. A light cool down is expected toward Wednesday and Thursday, but we heat right back up on Friday.
