ROANOKE, Va. – Thursday’s drought monitor continues to show “severe” drought across almost all of our area, and there isn’t a lot of relief in sight.
Showers Friday will be scattered during the late morning and early afternoon hours.
Saturday starts dry. If you want to take advantage of some milder weather, that would be a great time to put up some holiday lights too.
A steady stream of moisture allows more showers to move in Saturday evening. The heaviest rain will likely be south of here, but we’ll take any chance we can get.
Some showers may linger into early Sunday morning. Anything after that Sunday will be scattered. Despite increased clouds and shower chances, the weekend will be mild with highs in the 60s.
Expect a slight cool-down during the first half of next week. We’ll be breezy at times too through Tuesday and Wednesday. Occasional snow showers will target our west-facing slopes.
Outside of that, much of next week is (yet again) dry. The 6-10 day outlook from the Climate Prediction Center shows drier than average weather.
Looking beyond the extended forecast, it looks like our next chance for precipitation would be around December 11.
