Warmth holds on ahead of weekend cold front - CM 🤓
WEDNESDAY THROUGH FRIDAY
High pressure keeps a tight grip on our weather Wednesday, resulting in more sunshine and similar warmth to the past two days. As it starts to buckle, we see clouds increasing Thursday with highs only in the 70s after starting out chilly. Friday will be a day where we see a few passing late day showers, though most of us will be dry for high school football action.
Then, we track a strong cold front for the weekend.
Saturday starts mostly dry with temperatures in the 50s. We rise into the 60s before a rush of strong wind gusts and cold air moves through. It’ll be a good idea to weigh down any loose outdoor items, as some gusts could exceed 40 mph in the NRV, Roanoke Valley and Highlands.
Temperatures then plummet into the 40s Sunday morning. Highs Sunday will only be in the 50s and 60s, and it will still be breezy. Whether or not we see frost Monday morning will depend on if the wind can calm down.
EARLY NEXT WEEK
Each morning early next week starts out chilly – in the 30s and 40s. Highs mostly reach the 60s under sunshine, keeping that late October/early November feel in check.
