Soggy, foggy Thursday morning commute gives way to spring-like warmth through Friday

Once we get rid of one round of rain, temperatures spring forward through Friday.

ROANOKE, Va. – Fog may once again be dense in parts of the area early Thursday morning. Along with that, we’re tracking rain during peak commute hours.

This rain turns a lot more sporadic through the afternoon. Between 7 and 11 p.m., we stand the chance for additional scattered showers and maybe even some rumbles of thunder.

Hourly rain chances are highest Thursday morning.

Contrary to last week, we’re dealing with an unseasonably warm air mass. You’ll definitely notice that heading into Friday, when high temperatures range between 64 and 72°. That’s your average for early-to-mid April, not late January.

Temperatures Thursday and Friday will resemble mid-spring.
