Warm with showers and storms to the north

ROANOKE, Va. – Temperatures are turning warm yet again this afternoon with a light breeze at times. Showers and a few storms are possible to the north.

Storm Prediction Center Outlook

Early this morning, the Storm Prediction Center (SPC) upgraded the severe weather threat for today. A marginal risk (level 1/5) is in effect for much of Southwest Virginia. Though this threat exists, I think most storms that develop are pushed just west of I-81.

Monday also brings the chance for some storms, though this threat is late in the evening.

Tuesday is the day we have been watching for a while now, and the severe weather threat has continued to push further east.

Today's High Temperatures

This afternoon brings temperatures in the 70s for nearly everyone. A few spots even see 80 degrees thanks to warm air being shoved into the region.
