Sunday is St. Patrick’s Day! The weather will be cooperative with intervals of sunshine and partly cloudy skies.

Winds over the next 3 days

The only inconvenience to Sunday’s weather is the wind. A sustained breeze of 10-15mph will be felt across Southwest Virginia with gusts close to 30mph at times.

A look at tomorrow

Another cold front enters the area later Saturday night and will bring mostly cloud cover. A few sprinkles will be seen across the NRV and Highlands, but for the most part, we’re dry.

Next Week

After the front passes through, our temperatures will become cooler and the winds will pick up.

A look at the next 7 days

Next week starts off with cooler temperatures around 50 degrees. It will also be sunny for much of the week thanks to high pressure settling in.
