Dry Thursday ahead of rain, wind Friday night-Saturday - CM 🤓
Another day of enjoyable weather is on tap! We begin with temperatures in the 50s early in the morning, so you may need an extra layer briefly. Afternoon highs reach around 76 to 81 before falling into the mid to upper 50s again overnight.
Clouds increase Friday as a wave of low pressure gets going off the East Coast. A few areas of mist and drizzle will be possible later in the day. Otherwise, most of the rain waits until Friday night and Saturday morning.
Highs Friday will be in the low to mid 70s. Saturday – the first day of fall – will feel like it. Highs have a hard time making it out of the 60s.
Most rain we see occurs in the morning before drifting north and east during the afternoon. Gusts of 20 to 35 mph will be possible near and east of the Roanoke Valley. That’s where most rain falls, but it still will only be about 0.25 to 0.50”.
We spend Sunday and Monday in between storm systems. Each day begins in the mid to upper 50s. Each afternoon reaches the mid to upper 70s with minimal rain chances.
Another cool air wedge develops with highs in the 60s and 70s. Moisture overruns that, resulting in more showers late Tuesday into Wednesday. Even still, rain totals don’t look to be that high.
