Thawing out: Afternoons warm a bit following morning frosts, freezes

Temperatures bounce back to the 60s and 70s this weekend into next week

ROANOKE, Va. – It’s another freezing start to Friday morning, so make sure you’ve got layers!

You may also need to budget an extra minute or two to get some frost of the windshield.

By the afternoon, that’s a non-issue. We’ll be milder Friday than we were Thursday, as highs reach closer to average levels for early November.
